Vote stumping: Would you be willing to vote for my Raspberry Carrot Raisin Slaw in the Let’s re-Do Lunch Contest? I’d think you were swell if you did!


1st Grader Bento #383: November 8, 2010

On Monday, my 1st grader’s lunch was packed in the Easy Lunchbox. It had: strawberries, pretzel thins, mini-pineapple teriyaki sausages, raspberries and a whole wheat dinner roll.


Toddler Bento #67: November 9, 2010

Augie’s lunch had leftover turkey taco meat from Monday’s dinner, a half avocado, frozen soycatash and raspberries and pomegranate seeds. I bought the pomegranate at the farmer’s market on a whim and discovered that Augie is crazy for them. Cool!

1st Grader Bento #384: November 9, 2010

Wyatt’s lunch had raspberries a Laughing Cow cheese wedge, leftover taco meat with cheese and some chips to eat it with.

Lego Bento

His lunch was packed in my new Lego bento box! Pretty sweet, isn’t it? I’m not sure if Wyatt was more excited by it or if I was.

1st Grader Snack #145: November 9, 2010

His snack was a pumpkin muffin and some homemade apple sauce.


Toddler Bento #68: November 10, 2010

My toddler’s lunch had mixed veggies, mini hot dogs, strawberries and a pumpkin muffin (which he didn’t eat).

1st Grader Bento #385: November 10, 2010

My six-year-old’s lunch had an apple-carrot crusher, dried cranberries, a Laughing Cow cheese wedge, salami slices on a skewer, strawberries and a pumpkin muffin.


There was no school on Thursday for the Veteran’s Day holiday so I didn’t pack Wyatt a bento lunch.


Six Year Old's Bento #386: November 12, 2010

Wyatt was off school again on Friday, so I packed up some lunches and the boys and I went to a science museum for the morning. Wyatt’s lunch had Triscuits (these were mostly for me though) little salami and catsup sandwiches, fruit leather Batman logos, pita crackers and strawberries.

Mom/Toddler Bento #49: November 12, 2010

Augie and I shared a lunch box: there was a ham and soy cheese sandwich for Augie, three little ham and chipotle cheese sandwiches for me (Augie’s was decorated with a fruit leather Batman, mine with harvarti cheese Batman logos), tomatoes and strawberries.

This is the view we enjoyed while we ate out on the museum’s patio:

Bay View

Even though I’ve lived in the San Francisco Bay area for twenty years now, sometimes I still look around me and say, “Holy Moly! I live here?!”
