What is is Wednesday? And how I avoided the dreaded school chicken sandwich hot lunch!


This fools my girls every time! They always think it’s ranch. I sure looks like it, but it’s not! So, what do you think it is? Keep reading to find out!

Today was chicken sandwich day at school. If you have been following along with this blog at all, you know that chicken sandwich day is a staple to my girls’ weeks. I have been trying to get them to “Just say no” to all school hot lunches, but I can never get them to say no to this….. Until today!!! Last night I decided to make some breaded baked chicken for dinner. Nothing fancy here…You know, the kind that you shake, then bake? ;) Anyway, my tiny princesses decided that it would be so much yummier that the school chicken sandwich so they wanted to take that for lunch instead. Okay, so the real kicker was that if they took a packed lunch they would get a surprise Lunch Box Love Note from inside. ;)
Both lunches were pretty much the same with only minor details changed.

Here’s what she had…
  • Spooky Shake-N-Bake chicken with bone food pick/fork in a spooky spider silicone cup.
  • Ketchup for dipping
  • Chobani Champions Chocolate Chunk Yogurt (did you guess correctly?)
  • Carrots (no ranch)
  • S’mores trail mix. A bit more than usual. (Another “bribe” to guide them away from school lunch.) ;)
  • Pineapple in small blue container
  • Granola bar halved
The only differences between K & A’s lunches are…. Added ranch and Mott’s Medleys fruit snacks. Omitted pineapple.

  1. I totally guessed the yogurt! Woot! Probably only because I have thought to myself before that it looks like ranch. Haha. The lunches look great. Keep up the wonderful work!

    Happy Packing!
