From top left: sticky rice with rice seasoning and salt; 3 vegetable gyozas; 5 strawberries; Nature Valley cereal. Although I received Mr. Bento in record time last week, today is my first chance to sample his bento goodness. I hope this is enough food to keep me full all day. The variety is nice, though […]

If Spring is Here Then Summer isn’t Far Behind

I was just talking about spring the other day. Sitting here today, I realized that means that summer isn’t far behind. As a child, summers meant endless days at the beach, reading book after book after book – sometimes well into the night. My grandmother and I would stay at our house there from late […]

Springtime!

It’s spring! Okay, okay, so spring started last week – I know. But now it’s warm out. And we can work on our pitiful garden (I never cleared it after last season). And we can walk to the park again, which is one of my favorite activities with Will. But this puzzles me (this isn’t […]

I was so excited this morning to report that Mr. Bento was on his way, but never in my wildest dreams did I expect to see him arrive so swiftly. What? What’s that behind my darling boy? Can it really be? Already? Yes! Thank you Amazon for your super speedy (and free) delivery! Thank you! […]

He’s Coming!

Lunch. These days, lunch is a hard meal for me. My corporate cafeteria has struck out again and again for me, and the salad bar is not only overpriced, but uninspired. So, that leaves me needing to bring lunch – which I forget to do some days, though I am getting better. It’s hard to […]

Cheesecake, Just the Way Will Likes it

I was amazed when Will stood by himself the first time – he was barely 5 months old. But others were more impressed with the amount of food he can put down . . . he is quite the eater and has been since he was a wee babe. The first confection Will ate as […]

. . . does little to drive away the writer’s block. A whole week away from my blog? I can’t believe it! So what have I been doing while neglecting this nearly daily log of eats and exploits? Well, for one, I am still editing Well Fed On The Town, Fit Fare and Sugar Savvy, […]

A Pretty Sundae

A Pretty Sundae

This ice cream sundae may look delicious, but the ice cream itself was awful! I used Turkey Hill Light Vanilla Bean and it reeked of artificiality. YUCK. I should have shelled out the few extra dollars for the Breyer’s! What’s your favorite ice cream?

This is not pistachio flavored or mint chocolate chip or mint anything. It’s just a very green concoction I made for dessert last night (it was St. Patrick’s Day after all). You can’t quite see the green sludge (aka chocolate mint pudding) in the bottom . . . yea, classy. Guess I went a little […]

Snow Day!

Once he got over the “ew” factor of the snow sticking to his mittens, Will discovered that he loved the snow. We spent more than an hour outside, marching around in it’s fluffy goodness.
