In a mad dash this morning, I dumped some rice in the yellow container and topped it off with marubo-dofu leftover from dinner last night (tofu and minced beef in a slightly sweet sauce). Then I fried up two small sausages, microwaved some spinach and added a little salt and black sesame seeds, leftover rolled egg from yesterday's lunch and some strawberries with mandarin oranges hidden underneath for good measure.
Yesterday's lunch was a success! It came home completely empty except for a lone carrot slice stuck to the lid. This may look like a lot of food for a 3 year old, but Bailey just nibbles his breakfast around 7:00 every morning and so by the time lunch rolls around I know he is starving. At daycare (where the teachers prepared lunch), he was always asking for seconds and sometimes even thirds. It seems like Bailey always eats the most for lunch.
