My best friend won the award for best lunch almost every day of elementary school.
Her lunch box contained fourth grade treasures such as a thermos of soup, delicately shaped vegetables, tiny chocolates, and a special message from her dad.
The notes were simple, often scribbled on the back of a paper napkin… but they were there in each and every lunch.
There is nothing like a reliable hello from home in the middle of the school day!
Master of the Lunch Note
My husband is the primary lunch packer at our house.
He claims no special skills in the culinary department – generally sticking to ham and cheese, peanut butter & jelly, or leftovers – but he truly shines at lunch box notes!
His lunch box enclosures are tiny humorous sketches of our family:
- One lunch will find our German Shepherd piloting a World War II fighter plane
- The next note will depict the children racing down a snowy mountain on one ski or competing in a swim team race.
I am the queen of creative cooking on the days that I pack school lunches. I love making turkey tortilla spirals, bento boxes of vegetables with dipping sauce, and peanut butter sushi.
But then comes the note…
While my notes contain lots of LOVE they show no artistic ability. I am crafty not an artist!
