Edible Geekery : Lunch for Nerds

Today is March 14. 3.14. Pi Day.
Sailor Boy has pi in his EasyLunchbox:

The symbol for pi, a pie shape, and 3.14 = PI.E cut out of cheddar
Broccoli & swiss quiche, or you could call it broccoli, cheese & egg pie :)
Pickles, Pistachios, and Pineapple too. Happy π day to my favourite nerd!

His lunch was inspired by this cartoon:

Heheh :)

I had fun making Pickle's sandwich. It's Lego! 

Simple Lego Sandwich by Bent On @BetterLunches
Late last night I was checking out a new post on my LEGO lunch Box's Facebook Page, and asked myself (in my head) "Hey, why have I not made a Lego sandwich yet?" So I did :) I think he will love it!

This sandwich was so simple to make. They are just rectangular sandwiches, with bread circles stuck on with a spot of peanut butter. I used a tiny circle bento cutter but you could cut a small circle cutter from a dried out marker's cap or an empty lip balm tube... use your imagination :)

Hard to believe that Monday it seemed nice like Spring, we even planted flowers, then Tuesday it snowed! It's a cold day again today, there are still some icy patches here and there - it's a Thermos lunch kind of day. Bella has spaghettios, Triscuit crackers & cheese.

Beanstalk is home today, he had a temperature at school yesterday and had to be picked up early. He seems fine to me and if he has no fever by lunch today he can go back - if not he can eat it here. He has Triscuit crackers, parmesan goldfish, honey ham roll-ups, and an orange. Vitamin C for whatever ails him :)

      There is an insulated drink holder too but we don't have it. My Bella says her spaghettios are still hot when she opens it at lunch :)
