Now that E is back in school and I have to pack lunches, you’ll probably be seeing more bentos on here, although this may be as fancy as they get. She helped pick out what went into her lunch for the first day, and shockingly, ate pretty much every bit of what I had thought would be way too much food. In fact, she was still munching on the last of the peas when I showed up! I guess they worked up an appetite!



Hummus, yogurt spread, baby carrots, giant sugar snap peas, Applegate farms salami, some local cheese (I forget what kind), rice crackers, rosemary focaccia with olive oil & balsamic for dipping, and organic berries. Phew, that was a mouthful!

E and I hit up the neighborhood farmers market, where I might have gone a little bit overboard with random purchases that didn’t necessarily constitute a real dinner. So instead, I just threw everything together, added a few odds and ends like some hummus, zucchini fries (not pictured), and veggies, we had ourselves a lovely little picnic dinner. E was highly amused by the concept.  She said, “snacks for DINNER?!”  Ha!

Kid lunch
Ham sandwich, string cheese and strawberries
Sorry for the super lame post but it’s been hectic around these parts, plus we’ve all been down with some sort of horrible summer cold/cough.  This was the best I could manage, especially since my kid kept trying to snatch her plate away and inadvertently photo-bombing.
