Since I forgot my camera on the first day of school I took a picture of her after I picked her up. Evidence of a good day; one pigtail has come loose, hair is plastered with sweat to her forehead, a little lunch on her shirt, and a smile on her face.
Bento season has begun! We started off with peanut butter rolls, cow cheese, cutie orange, cat cookies, edamame, and apple sauce (no sugar).
Then, she asked for a sushi lunch! So I rolled some vegetarian California rolls with a piggie of soy sauce, apple sauce, cutie orange, cat cookies, and cucumber slices. I left out the fish because I was a little wary of it keeping temp until lunch.
Trader Joe’s sold us on these seafood croquettes with a sample in the store. So we have seafood croquettes with mango chutney (in the little box), cutie orange, edamame, and a fortune cookie.
For this lunch I used a left over chicken strip and added orange chicken sauce (Ara’s all time favorite), then the usual orange, cat cookies, edamame, and apple sauce.
Pesto tortellini with white sauce, edamame, cat cookies, orange, and chicken breast (from a cooked rotisserie chicken).
When I run out of ideas/food I can always depend on rice. This is a blend of brown Jasmine rice and quinoa with edamame and corn thrown in. A TJ’s fruit crusher (Which came back uneaten), more seafood croquettes with mango chutney, and cat cookies (for people)!
