Petit Fours for Christmas

My Grandma always had pretty tiered trays full of petit fours when I was growing up so this year I bit the bullet and ordered some for myself for Thanksgiving and Christmas…well not just for myself of course, to share, and boy are they a hit! To go along with them however, we had to […]

Star Apple, Baby Burrito and More

Today we’ve got a black bean filled baby burrito, with Vegan Cheese, and some lettuce. The tortilla is locally made, we finally found a local source – pretty exciting! The apples I finally remembered to cut in the direction where that star is visible. I think it is the coolest thing that there is a […]

Sack Lunch

So Simon has 1/2 day of school today. The silly thing about 1/2 days is rather than serving a “hot” lunch the kids all get a sack lunch to eat in their classrooms. Well Simon desperately wanted a sack lunch so he could be just like the other kids at school. So – I compromised […]

Green Salad, Squash Bread and More

So my kids like salad? What the? I had no idea, just really recently they’ve been requesting salad – Gus is the one that shocks me the most I think. So we’ve got some salad today (which makes my heart happy), a big ol’ bowl of applesauce, some cheddar cheese goldfish crackers, some squash bread […]

Peanut Butter Bumpers, Fig Cookies and More

We’ve got a handful of Peanut Butter Bumpers to snack on today. Gus tends to prefer his cereal to be dry anyway, so why not throw it in the lunchbox? Pan-fried carrots again, some Fig Cookies, chocolate chips, goldfish and vitamins are the bitty things in the mix, and a dollop of homemade applesauce that […]

PB&J Bites, Diced Organic Apple and More

PB&J – crustless and cut into tiny bites is way more appetizing than the other boring way. For sides today we’ll have a 1/2 banana, goldfish crackers (to fill the gaps), lemon soy yogurt (LOTS), and a few diced organic apples. And of course some vitamins and water to wash it all down. Delicious. If […]

Edamame, Pesto Tortillini and More

Woah we’ve got a whole lot of new stuff going on today! Pesto tortellini is a favorite around our house, I think pesto pasta could be an everyday delight and Simon and Gus would never tire. Edamame are just as fun to open as they are to eat, and baked tofu (ah yum!), goldfish crackers […]

Spaghetti, Red Grapes and More

Today Gus will enjoy some spaghetti with homemade sauce – straight from our garden – well the garden didn’t make the sauce, just the tomatoes. The guy loves his strawberries too, and organic apple slices and who doesn’t love some organic red grapes? Colored goldfish are swimming all around that spaghetti, and some soy yogurt […]

Seriously he does.

A 1/2 banana, some diced organic apples, a pretty row of plums and some soy yogurt and vitamins to […]

Pocky

Just wanted to make sure you got a good look at those delicious Pocky sticks…I tried them for the first time in my High School Japanese Class and then coming across them at the grocery store made me pretty excited to share them with my kids. Now that’s how you skip to dessert first… As […]
