Do You Eat Like A Fifth Grader?

I do. And the girls at work make fun of me for it. But you know what? I think I'll make some kick-ass lunches for my kids when I'm a mom :)



A typical lunch:
Peanut butter & jelly (or fluff) sandwich
Yogurt (low fat!)
A Little Debbie's product (brownie or ho-ho usually)
Lunch-size bag of chips
Water
Candy for a late snack (optional)


What do you do that keeps you a kid at heart?

yeah, i'm with ya on this one.

I lurve just pepperoni on a pizza and get accused of being a 5 year old.

My vegemite sandwiches minus any butter or margarine are also a giveaway.

Dry biscuits are also another fav that others just don't seem to get.

We need a Facebook group or something. Or at least on 20SB :-)

btw - i have no idea with a ho-ho is, and have never eaten a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, though I assume that sandwich to you guys is like a vegemite sandwich to us - it's a staple part of every diet!!

Also, what's a fluff sandwich? Cause fluff to me, means either a mysterious piece of lint you find in your belly button or flatulence!?

I'm all about box juices and capri sun. I love those things

MrsTwink said...

I think all forms of candy keep me a kid at heart. You should see my desk drawer at work. Its packed with:
Nerds
Sour Patch Kids
York Peppermint Patties
Gummi Bears
Fireballs

Yoda said...

I need to eat like a man though. I get REALLY hungry :-)

To snack, nothing beats Oreo cookies!

Annie said...

I definitely bring my lunch in one of those insulated lunch bags. When I finally retired my old one, I had to choose between My Little Pony and a plain pink one (no joke, Target was waaaay behind in stocking apparently), so I went with the less little kiddish of the two. However, my co-workers tease me mercilessly!

ChasingParadise said...

Okay, first of all, I think I want to work with mrstwink! I'm jealous of what her desk holds.

As for me, I'm a huge sucker for chocolate. I have a little bit of it on most days.

But the thing that keeps me a kid at heart? Remember when you were like 13 or 14 and you used to dance around your room with the music up loud, singing into your hairbrush?

Yeah, I still do that!

I love peanut butter and jelly!! There's a restaurant here in NYC called Peanut Butter & Co that serves all sorts of awesome pb&j sandwiches (you choose the type of bread, smooth or crunchy, the kind of jelly, or even fluff or nutella etc), and each one comes with like chips and carrot sticks. It's amazing.

Tina Vaziri said...

Your lunch is so cute, mine are very boring compared to that. I think the closest I get is some days I'll grab a cup of mac&cheese and a small bag of chips.

Hazel said...

I've become a little more grown up in my taste in food, but I don't cook! I don't really know how and I feel like I'm useless in the kitchen. So most of my meals are made in the microwave or on the stove top, as in, pasta.

La said...

I chew gum. Non-stop.

:)

Susie said...

Peanut butter and jelly is sooo my go-to comfort food. I should totally start buying Fluff again!

Passionista said...

I'm guilty of bringing lunchables to work for lunch! I never live that down.

Le Petit Chic said...

Ha, that looks like it could be my lunch! Except I buy the Trix yogurt and bring juice boxes because they are the perfect size for me :)
I think my love for Spaghetti-O's really keeps me a kid at heart.

She Likes Purple said...

I laugh every time I hear someone say "69"--seriously. I'm going to be 26 in a week.

lspoon said...

Sometimes I rock the lunchables. THe old school ones before they got all fancy!

dreamgirl said...

wait, you can eat a brownie every day? i almost always bring my lunch which always consists of some sort of fruit and some sort of chocolate treat! mmm i want PB&J

Scotty said...

Whats fluff? I may be missing out on something...

I dont need to pack dessert... we have a 'candy room' at work. 'Candy room' = partner keeps a file drawer in her office FULL of all kinds of candy for us to eat.

Wonderfulness.

Kristen said...

play tackle in the snow with my husband and make snow angels. i was laughing about it for days after. :)

Virginia said...

My friends and I still find the "pen15" club absolutely HILARIOUS. And I eat a PB&J almost every day...I love them so much. We should get together for sandwiches sometime! Also, those crackers where you spread the cheese on with the little red stick. Those are so good!

Miriam D said...

I would TOTALLY eat like a fifth-grader at lunch... if I also didn't have the sense of responsibility a fifth grader has and am too damn lazy to pack a lunch like that.

k said...

i loooove pb&j. the guys in my office at school are asian and just don't get it.

(merry christmas!)

The Ex said...

I think we all do that. I LOVE lunches like that. It makes me feel so organized and jazzed for the day.

ps - what's fluff?

Ripe for Reading said...

the ex - fluff is the BEST stuff on earth. Fluffernutter. Go buy some. Yum!

Michelle--I used to pack fun lunches like you and then I stopped a few years ago. Not sure why. Perhaps in '08 I can start up again.

swaaaan said...

I'll have you know that I bring my lunch to work in a scooby doo lunch box. no lie.

Julie Q said...

omg you are my hero! You're lunch looks a lot yummier then boring Lean cuisines!!!!

Valley Girl said...

LOL, your lunches are awesome! Dude, at least you have some Yoplait in there. Now all you need to do is cut the crust off of your sandwich. =)

Jess said...

I always have a pudding cup with my lunch and a granola bar as an afternoon snack. By "always" I mean "every day at work since I started Weight Watchers." It resurrects my grade school days, and it keeps me feeling full without consuming tons of calories. What more can you want?

libby said...

ok that is too freakin' cute. you TOTALLY rock the 5th grader lunch! lol...

i love all the little snacks that come in mini pacakages...i guess that makes me kid-ish (?)

Valerie said...

I try to watch Rudolph (the classic) every Christmas :)

Sarah said...

Whenever I make Hamburger Helper or Pasta Roni for dinner, I always have leftovers and I bring them for lunch the next day at work. My co-workers make fun of me whenever I do. I have no idea why.

alyndabear said...

Your lunches look amazing. I love Fluff, hehe.

What on EARTH is a HoHo? Sounds very cheeky!

Lisa said...

You're adorable! I bring all sorts of things in little ziploc bags but I find that if I don't BRING any treats, that means I can't eat any for a whole 8 hours! Which is honestly record setting. Seriously try it, but you have to have plenty of things to eat like carrots or red peppers to take your mind off your missing treats.

erin said...

PB&J. Coloring (okay, I love coloring I just don't do it nearly enough). Sour Patch Kids (my mom buys them for me). Fruitabu (it's a healthier sort of fruit snack and I like to eat it like I did in the cafeteria).

Stephanie said...

Animal crackers and apple juice is probably my favorite snack ever. Apparently, I am in preschool.

Princess Pointful said...

I wear kitty cat slippers :)

Deutlich said...

I always have some variety of chocolate on hand. Daily cocoa fixes are the only way I can survive sometimes.

Daddy Dan said...

Skittles, Lemonheads, or peanut M&Ms are a daily must for me. I'm such a kid!

Ashley said...

HAHA, I love it.

I love the marshmallow fluff tooo!

It is so much fun being a kid at heart, I will never grow up in that regard. :)
