Today we enjoyed ‘Pizza Squeezies’ with our Baker’s Delight Bread. Pizza Squeezie is a marketing term I coined in ordered to convince a little person to try toasted sandwiches. It worked.
The bread is actually nice and soft but has some strength. I like that Baker’s Delight gives away all the bread they have left at the end of each day. Make’s me feel like I am supporting charity when I shop there!!
Today’s topic is lunchbox shame. If you were one of those lucky people who had shop bought biscuits and goodies then I was probably one of those people you felt sorry for. Looking back now I’m pretty proud we were a homemade kind of family and we always had a lunch that was nutritious and healthy. However in my lunchbox items of shame I have to list the following:
1. Weetbix with spread on them – when the baking ran out. Good points: they took the whole of morning tea time to get through and with the thick layer of butter they held everything, including your jaw, together.
2. Peanuts – not in shells, not roasted, not even blanched. Just plain brown-skinned peanuts. While everyone else was trashing the environment with their flashy raisins in packets we had a peanut and raisin mix in lunch paper.
To enter the draw today simply tell me what you used to wish WAS in your lunchbox or what you put in your kids lunch boxes that makes you feel bad.
I have to say on the odd occasion my boys have chips or rubbish
muesli sweet bars I feel like a bad parent – as a kid it would have been my idea of an awesome lunch.
How things change!
On Saturday I will do a random draw from each of the lunchbox posts for a winner (Wed, Thurs, ) and then select another couple that made me laugh. Comment every day increase you chances!
