What is it Wed., lost puppies, lots of tears, lots of lunches, and happy endings!

Lots to post today so I’m going to try to keep it simple and short! (yeah, right! When have I ever kept anything short?)
So, did you all see the “What is it Wednesday?” picture on the TPLB fb page? If not, or if you need a refresher, here is the picture….
What do you think it is? Keep reading to find out.( Answer is at the bottom of the post.)
Now onto some lunches….
These may not be in the exact order they were received as a couple of them contain my what is it Wednesday item. I don’t want to give it away too quick!

Tiny princess K’s lunch with inner container lids off. 11/2/12


Here’s what she had…
  • Ritz crackers in a silicone flower cup
  • 2 sandwich cookies in a square silicone cup. Yes, these cookies are very unhealthy, though they are true weakness for everyone of my family members and every now and then Grandma sends them home with the girls. :) Who am I do deny a treat from Grandma?
  • Star Colby cheese slices in silicone heart cup
  • Fruit snacks of the unhealthy variety
  • Organic Vanilla yogurt with crown and glass slipper sprinkles
  • Veggie straws in dollar store container
  • Packed in Yubo lunchboxes

Tiny princess A’s lunch with all inner container lids on. Plus a lunch box love note! (A had the same as K)


And here is my my sweet husband’s lunch from the same day. It’s pretty self explanatory. ;) and boring!

Packed in an easylunchbox

Tiny princess A and K’s lunch 11/6/12 both the same one minor difference.

  • M&M’s
  • Brown Cow Maple Yogurt
  • Fortune cookie
  • Gerber Graduates Veggie puffs

Here is my husband’s lunch from today. Which explains my lost dog and happy ending title. Long story short our sweet pooch AKA #thebestdogever came up missing Sunday night. We were all devastated. He is home now safe and sound so all is right with the world. The tiny princesses of course had chicken sandwich day at school, but I just couldn’t resist this pup themed lunch for my guy!
Sorry for the even worse than usual photo quality…. oh and the water spots on our planet box….. #awkward
015Here’s what he had…
  • Mini cheddar rice cakes
  • Colby cheese cubed
  • 2 little dippers of apple sauce…. cause one is just not enough.
  • Candy bones
  • Granola bar
  • a few veggie straws
  • Dog in house chicken and cheese sandwich
Finally on to What is it Wednesday!!!!
Here is a photo of the first lunch in which it was featured.  11/1/12 (a no school day for my princesses)


Can you tell what it is yet? Still kinda looks like a Jelly Donut, doesn’t it?
Here is what they had…
  • Green Beans
  • M&M’s (remember this was an at home lunch… don’t worry there was no mixing of the green bean juice with the yummy candy!
  • Cinnamon applesauce
  • Organic french vanilla yogurt
  • Pretzel sticks……….

And…. A Peanut Butter And Jelly Biscuit! YUM!!

hold the Jelly for A
Here is what you need and how we made them
  • 1 package of pillsbury  Grand biscuits.
  • Peanut Butter
  • Jelly
Preheat your oven according to the directions on the biscuit package. Open up your biscuits and separate each one at the middle to form two pieces. Set one half aside  and one half on a baking sheet. Add about 1 table spoon of peanut butter to each half that is on the baking sheet. Replace the half you set aside to each one of your peanut butter halves. Crimp the edges to seal and form just one biscuit again. Use your thumb or rounded spoon to create an intent on the top of each biscuit. Leave some alone if you have a jelly hater like me. ;) Add just enough jelly to fill the hole. Baked as directed on biscuit package. If you want to fake people into believing these are Jelly donuts you can add a glaze. (just a mixture of powdered sugar and milk) Then top with sprinkles and a dusting of powdered sugar. :)

We also had these in Monday’s lunch 11/5/12. My pictures are bad cause the batteries in my speedlite died, but you can see the insides a little better in these photos since I halved them to fit better in our Goodbyn Byntos.

Both girls enjoyed basically the same items. K got purple nerds and A got pink nerds…. oh and of course no jelly for A!


Here’s what they had…
  • Organic vanilla yogurt
  • Peanut butter and jelly biscuit hold the jelly for A
  • Green beans
  • Mini cheddar rice cakes
  • Frit puffs
  • Nerds
  • Roasted sunflower seeds with a few chocolate covered ones on top for color.
So, did you guess correctly? I’d love to hear some of your guesses. Feel free to leave them in the comments section!

  1. The lunches look fantastic! I am glad your doggy made it home. I know how sad it can be to lose a pet. :( I love the skewers, the candy dog bones, and the what is it wednesday item! I totally thought it was a doughnut with sprinkles! Fooled me. :P

    Happy Packing!
