Lunch today: Spinach Salad with Autumnal Add-ons

I eat this salad for lunch every other day, and sometimes for dinner too. It takes 12 seconds and seems kind of restauranty, or at least seems restauranty to someone like me who never eats in restaurants. Here’s all it is: spinach (we like Olivia’s Organics because it never seems to go bad), sliced or [...]

Etsy: Evelyn Fields

I am still completely in love with the little fabric baggies I got from Gnomeclothes for putting food into Henry’s lunch. There have been a few times when they’re all in the wash or in his snack bin at school, though. I’m not quite ready to get more just yet, but when I do, I’ve [...]

lunch anxiety

Last night I woke up at 2:00 a.m., suddenly panicked because I forgot to make Henry’s lunch. I actually considered getting up and making it then. What is wrong with me? I didn’t make it in the middle of the night (what would it have been, I wonder? some kind of odd midnight snack lunch, [...]

I should have handed out multivitamins at Halloween.

As I’ve mentioned, I don’t make anything especially fancy-pants for lunches here, mostly since I make them 10 minutes before I go to bed, and I’m worrying much more about the allergy-free ingredients that I’m putting into the lunchboxes and less about what the actual foodstuffs are. But whatever I’m doing, it was enough to [...]

They’re great!” Once I got over my terror that she was going to chastise [...]

Great Balls of Peanuts

One of our new favorite snacks is peanut butter balls. I got the idea from a recipe in Wondertime; I think they called them Power Balls. The original recipe called for chocolate chips, and while I am always trying to up my chocolate intake, I want to keep it out of the boys, so I [...]

Etsy: Gnomeclothes

Right before school started, I suddenly got a bee in my bonnet about plastic baggies and not wanting to use them. Of course once I looked there are a ton of people on Etsy making their own fabric baggies. I got some from Gnomeclothes because they are all cotton fabric (no vinyl – it seemed [...]

Whoa is Lunch

I’m kind of finding the kindergarten lunch-packing routine to be anxiety-producing. (Predictably) there’s a kid (they don’t say who) with a peanut/tree nut allergy in Henry’s class, so Henry’s snack has to be free of nuts. His lunch can have nuts, though, since the nut-allergy children (this is kind of sad, actually) get some special [...]
