B-day bash cupcake

And with the beginning of the school year, here come the birthday party invites for baby girl.

Most moms are accommodating, having veggie dogs to BBQ, or asking ahead of time what they can do about the cake issue. I let them know that I'll send something for my little one to have for dessert, which is what happened today. And now I have 11 leftover vanilla cupcakes with chocolate coconut-cream icing. Make that 10. Err...9? I had to do some quality taste testing.

Strawberry Bento Boxes

Labour Day: the unofficial last day of summer. The rain today is putting a damper on my blackberry picking plans. I hope it clears up by this afternoon. Although I will probably go even if it doesn't stop. After all, there is blackberry jam to be made!

Labour Day also marks the return to school tomorrow - or in my baby girl's case, the first day of school ever. It's very exciting for us, so of course we stocked up on new lunchbox containers. I can't wait to fill these up with delicious and fun lunches for her. Aren't they adorable?!

Bento lunchbox: seaweed & spaghetti

It's been a while since I posted one of baby girl's bento lunches. Unfortunately she dropped the bento box and the lid broke off, so it's kind of tricky to keep her lunch intact. Lately I've just been putting her food in a bunch of little containers inside an insulated lunch bag - which doesn't make a very appealing presentation.

So broken lid aside, here's today's lunch: In the back row, blueberry cinnamon oatmeal and a packet of roasted seaweed. It looks like a big package but there's only a few sheets in it and she absolutely loves them. These don't fit in the lunchbox when the lid is closed, but they all get put in the same carrying bag.

Now I'll go clockwise, starting with the brown rice spaghetti & tomato basil sauce, banana tofu, Sharkies (one of the
few gummy snacks that are gelatin-free) , sesame rice crackers, Annie's cocoa & vanilla bunnies, home made banana blackberry oatmeal muffin, dill pickle, and half of a navel orange with strawberry slices.

It may look like a lot of food, but it has to be enough for breakfast, lunch and snack time. She's got quite an appetite these days and the lunchbox is almost always empty when it comes back home.
