School lunches - week 3

Week 3 of pre-k and toddler preschool lunches. 
Monday: sandwich skewers for the big kids - Danny had bread, salame and jack cheese, Callie had just bread and two cheeses, cheddar and jack.  And deconstructed sandwiches for the little kids - one with salame, one just with cheese - I didn't think the sharp skewers were appropriate for two-year-olds.  I have two kids who don't eat meat.  With strawberries, blueberries and goldfish.  And Danny got some extra pear - because he is a bottomless pit and I didn't think it looked like quite enough food for him.  This was a pretty big hit and came back with just a few scraps of bread and cheese left. 
Tuesday: rolls of whole-wheat tortilla, cream cheese, turkey and thinly sliced carrot; cheese cubes, triscuits, pineapple and strawberries.  Danny ate almost every bite of his except he stripped out the carrots.  Callie didn't touch the rolls - she declared she didn't like it without even tasting it.  (so I had it for my lunch after I picked them up - I thought it was really good!)
Wednesday: Sometimes the lunches are original creations - but other times they are bits of leftovers and odd combinations.  Today - a little bit of everything: a piece of tuna melt, a couple mini hot dogs, boiled egg, popcorn, cheese stick, banana.  It was all mostly eaten.
Thursday: Mushroom quiche (with whole wheat crust - made for dinner last night by our nanny), banana, cheese, whole wheat pretzels and tomatoes/blueberries.  Danny every bite of his except I mistakenly gave him the one with tomatoes, and he doesn't eat those.  Callie's lunch was hardly touched - I think she ate the cheese.  I was surprised because the quiche was leftover from the night before and she ate all her dinner, so I thought she'd like it.  You never can tell. 
Ready to go for Friday: cut out quesadillas - butterfly, dog, elephant, dolphin and flowers (the scraps make a good snack for mommy); green beans, applesauce, Danny and Julianne have some turkey (Sarah and Callie won't eat it), Callie got the last of the tomatoes and the rest got raisins.
