This lunch makes me a little sad. I think it's mostly that Chip leaves on Saturday for almost three weeks and I'll miss him. This is the second to last lunch I'll be making for quite a while. I plan to pack him some snacks for the plane trip; vegetarian food on planes sucks, and it's hard to find good healthy stuff in airports.
I was really excited to have bought Chip a Clif Mojo bar (peanut butter pretzel flavor) for this lunch. I bought a pack earlier this week and sent all but one to my cousin who is deployed in Afghanistan. The one that I saved, I ate, and fell in love with. I thought Chip would love it too, so I had him try it tonight. He was not a fan. So I ate the rest of it, and sulked a little that instead of some variety, this lunch would have pretty much the same stuff he eats every day. If Chip would eat them, I'd put all kinds of fun things in that side section: Fruit Roll-Ups, Lara Bars, carrot sticks, etc. Alas, we're stuck with raisins and chocolate until I can find something else that he'll eat.
Ancient Grains crackers, local pepper jack cheese, organic Michigan applesauce, organic Thompson raisins, organic fair trade dark chocolate with almonds, banana, and whole wheat rollups with natural peanut butter and jelly.
