School Lunch Box #2

It is much easier to prepare Christian's lunch box the night before. It also gives me the time to be a little creative compared to rushing something together in the morning. Tonight I made a dino-shaped sandwich with deli chicken meat, 1/2 cup of grapes, and in honor of the gold medal men's hockey game tonight 1/2 cup of maple leaf and star shaped cucumbers. I saved back the outter trims of the cucumber for another lunch or snack.


  1. cute! love the cucumber idea!

  2. Thanks. I thik it's cute too.

    When I was packing Christian's lunch into his bag this morning he asked if he could have a peach insted of grapes. So that's what I did.

Aztec Blend

I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth. I had no idea what some of those ingredients were but figured anything's worth a try, right? When I got home I looked up colusari rice & amaranth. Colusari rice is a burgundy-colored chewy rice that has a light nutty-popcorn-like flavor and amaranth is actually an herb.

It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.

Banna-Nutella Tortilla Wrap

While standing in the grocery store line last week I was flipping through a cooking magazine and came across this idea.  I thought it was the perfect after school surprise for Christian.

First I spread the nutella on a tortilla.

Then I put a peeled banana on it.

Rolled it up...

...and it was ready to eat.

Christian shared it with his little brother and they both gobbled it up.  A little messy... for Alexander especially, but worth it.

Raspberry Picking with Alexander

Two weeks ago we took Alexander raspberry picking.  He dressed up in long sleeves and pants to protect his legs from the raspberry vines and his rainy day boots in hopes of a puddle to splash in.
