Whew! I am so happy to be back to posting. My sickness is finally over and I am human again with only a little bit of coughing and no fever :) Last week was rough. This week is exciting though - today is my first day of school! And we're going to San Jose, CA later in the week. I would love suggestions about things to do while we're out that way.
In the bento: Acorn sandwiches filled with peanut butter and sugar sprinkles, blueberries on picks, an apple bunny, corn on the cob, steamed broccoli and a container of carrot hearts.
The acorn sammies were cut with a Wilton cookie cutter. Their cute caps were cut from the heel of the loaf and I used scissors to shape them to the right size. My carrot peeler was dirty this morning (I have a huge backlog of cleaning to attend to from being sick all last week) so I cut slices without peeling the carrot and then used a tiny heart shaped cutter to cut from the centers. The rest of the carrot got scooped up to go into the compost, peel and all.
Happy Monday, everyone!
