Clara’s Cold Lunch Corner Week 4

This week I have little to offer except Clara’s menu. You see, I have something up my sleeve that I won’t share yet. I usually look around to see what’s going on in the lunch world, but I’ve been working nonstop and my brain is mush. In fact, I think it might be seeping out of my ears. I just hope I have enough brain cells left to get this project finished.

I made Twinkies last week and froze a few of them for Clara’s lunches. She really enjoyed them and kept asking for more. It was also the Twinkies that saved me late last night after I'd worked for about 16 hours straight. I had no idea what to pack! Consequently, lunch number five is one of those haphazard mother has gone crazy lunches, but I think she’ll enjoy it today. It has a Twinkie in it, of course she will.

Hopefully this makes up for the leftovers I sent with her to school. I did try to break up the monotony of the same meal by spacing them two days apart. That seemed to help some. Although really, all Clara wanted was those darn Twinkies!

Hello Clara. She's a cutie!.

Hang in there Laura, waiting to see what you're working on :)

Guess what I did today? I placed a lunch order for the kid *gasp*. It was for homemade (or should that be canteen made?) chicken soup and a roll so it eased my conscience somewhat. But you actually packed lunch even with mush-brain...I am in awe :)
