Mini BLTs and a car bento


It’s a rainy, cooler day here in Florida today so there’s some sunshine inside the lunchbox.  I made Miss G some vegan BLTs for lunch.  I found these mini slider buns at Whole Foods in the bread section, and they’re they perfect size for preschool lunches.  I cooked some vegan tempeh (fermented soy) bacon.  I use a tiny bit of Earth Balance vegan mayo on the bun, then romaine leaves and sliced tomatoes.  Above the mini sandwiches are grape tomatoes and pineapple pieces.  In the top left of her Easy Lunchboxes container are honeydew melon pieces and in the top right is a sunshiny face clementine.

My girls also love sliced avocado or guacamole on their BLTs.

Miss G’s snack today is freeze dried mango pieces, a Crimson Gold organic apple and roasted cashews in her Happy Tiffin stainless bento box.

Vroom!  Miss A is off with her LunchBots Quad filled with cars.  From the top left are pineapple pieces with 2 honeydew melon cars on top.  In the top right is chickpea hummus with a pita bread car on top.  In the bottom right corner are honeydew melon pieces with dried apricot cars on top, and in the bottom left are Laurel Hill brand peace sign pretzels for dipping and mini carrots.

My dad died last week.  Just as I was typing away about the things I was grateful for last week, I realize now that the small things, tiny things we think are so insignificant can sometimes be the most precious memories.  My dad was a gifted writer and storyteller.  He loved to write and shared Continue Reading

Miss G’s lunch today is an almond butter sandwich (bottom left) on Rudi’s Whole Grain bread.  She has spider picks of grape tomatoes on either side and a homemade vegan cornbread muffin with Continue Reading
