And Yet Another Egg Salad Bento

Apparently, my children are on an egg salad kick.  It seems like the last several lunch pictures I have are of egg salad lunches.

As a side note, they have eaten other things, besides egg salad!  It seems that egg salad were the only pretty enough lunches to take pictures of.

Kid Favorite Egg Salad Bento

We still sometimes default to kid favorite bentos, especially when I am in a hurry.

This one was from shortly after Easter, when I had a plethora of boiled eggs left, and both of my kids have always loved egg salad.  But the best way to serve it isn't sandwiches, it's with crackers or croissants and a spoon to make their own combos at school.  Sandwiches would be much too easy.

Panda Snack Bento

Pandas make us happy.  Snacky lunches make us happy.  And yummy leftovers with extra good cheeses make us happy.  We're combining all three into one lunchbox!

Revenge of the Fifth Bento Lunch

I couldn't leave my girl out and she did not need a lunch yesterday, so I promised her I would make her something today instead.  So we went with a Revenge of the Fifth option instead!

Star Wars Day Bento Lunch

May the Fourth Be With You!!!

At the very last minute, the boy persuaded me that he just had to have a Star Wars lunch.  And by the very last minute, I mean around 7:30 this morning, since he starts school at 8:15.  But he's kind of cute, so I gave in.

It's almost Mother's Day and we're getting set to celebrate moms around our house!

This year, the kids and I came up with a plan to celebrate some mom friends of mine. With military families, your friends become your adopted family in your new home, and I want my tribe to know they are loved.  Especially with deployments, schools, and little ones, moms need that extra support and I'm excited to be able to do this.

Can a Cow Save a Penguin?

Tomorrow, April 25, is National Penguin Day!

This year, we're partnering with Stonyfield Yogurt to share more about how a cow can save a penguin, and how you can help too.  Did you know that, the last 100 years, African penguin breeding pairs, which numbered almost one million at the beginning of the 20th century, have dropped to approximately 25,000?  Reasons for this decline include oil spills; a loss of nest burrow sites; and a reduction in prey due to commercial fishing.
