I had no plans to make Fat Tuesday lunches this year. It's breakfast for lunch day at school - pancakes, which they often want, perfect for Shrove Tuesday / Pancake Day anyways. I figured if they didn't want the school lunch I'd just throw together something purple, green & gold :)
Pickle did want the school pancake lunch, but Beanstalk & Sprout wanted me to make them something. So here's what I threw together quite last-minute:
Beanstalk has a LunchBots Quad packed with apples, grapes, Angry Birds Cheese Nips, & a Clif Bar, made Mardi Gras-ish with purple, green & gold muffin cups & fleur-de-lis cupcake picks :)
Sprout has a purple, green & gold themed Goodbyn Bynto packed with grapes, apples, carrot sticks, string cheese, garlic Triscuit Thins, and a foil-wrapped chocolate doubloon treat. Poor Beanstalk didn't get one of those, I didn't remember I had them until after he'd left for school. Lucky Sprout though!
And this year I have plastic King Cake babies to hide in one of the pieces! Beanstalk will get a kick out of that - he's my New Orleans baby :)
