Panda Garden Picnic

Annie's Organic Macaroni & Cheese is the perfect background for my panda garden picnic.  This was a fast and simple lunch to make, and there wasn't a bit leftover after.  I hand-cut the large flower out of a bell pepper using a small knife, while the stem and leaves were cut from a snap pea.  I used a small cutter for the center of the flower and added the yellow pepper (made using same small cutter).  Including washing my produce and all prep time (other than cooking the pasta), it took me less than 10 minutes to make 2 of these lunches! 
What's in the box?
Annie's Organic Macaroni & Cheese w/ Sea Salt & Pepper
Red & Yellow Bell Pepper, Snap Peas, Broccoli
Honey Crisp Apple

Field Trip Lunch

I needed to make a quick lunch for zoo field trip, so I threw this one together in about 5 minutes.  I wrapped the pocket sandwich in thin parchment paper w/ washi tape to keep it from touching the other food in that section.  
What's in the box?
Sun Butter Pocket Sandwich
Smoked Turkey, Bell Pepper Rings
Golden Cherry & Grape Tomatoes, Baby Cucumbers
Mott's Healthy Request Applesauce

Chicken Nugget Lunch

I rarely purchase packaged (processed) food, but I saw these Applegate Naturals Chicken Nuggets at my local market recently and thought we'd try them as a treat.  I'm so glad we did, because they were delicious!  

I won't buy them often, but it is always nice to have a few quick options available for those days that I either don't have time to cook, don't feel like cooking, or my dinner plans fall through.  It certainly beats going out or ordering pizza. 
What's in the box?
Organic BBQ Sauce
Fresh Raw Corn, Baby Cucumber, Baby Bell Peppers
Mango, Kiwi

Bagel Thin w/ Turkey, Cheese, Avocado & Lettuce
