Happy St.Patrick's Day Eve :)

The sproutlets were out sick yesterday, so no lunches posted for them, and only 2 for today. They all did go back today, but Bella wanted the pizza on her school's menu. They wore green so they wouldn't get pinched, even though I told them they didn't have to worry since St. Patrick's Day isn't until tomorrow - but Bella said they should just in case someone wanted to get a pinch in early, since they wouldn't get the chance tomorrow. OK then. I gave them each a necklace of green shamrock-shaped beads to wear, for good measure :)

Here are Beanstalk & Pickle's lunches:

  • Granny Smith apple
  • Flag of Ireland yogurt pretzels embellished with melted & coloured white chocolate morsels
  • Shamrock-topped yogurt made by placing a cookie cutter on top of the yogurt, scooping some out from inside the cutter, colouring it green, then putting it back in and carefully removing the cutter.
  • Green & orange Goldfish crackers

Pickle has a peanut butter sandwich of course, with a shamrock shape cut from it, and a mini Hershey bar to make it more fun. I looked for a bigger cookie cutter, I know Wilton makes a large Comfort Grip Shamrock, but I didn't find it anywhere in my town. I did order one online for next year though  :)


  1. Mmmm.. that combo of chocolate and pb sound really good right about now :)

  2. Looks delicious!! I failed and let Kidlet go to school not wearing green....hope no one at school was in a pinchy mood :P
