twice bitten

Wouldn't you know it--I announce my participation in the Cans For Comments food drive, and then I look through the boys' backpacks before school and find out that the school is also having a two week food drive?! I guess we'll be donating a lot of food this December!
So that there's not too much of one type of food, the categories of non-perishable food items are divided by grade. AJ is in kindergarten, and all the kindergarten classes in his school are supposed to bring pasta, rice, oatmeal, or cereal. Ryan is in 1st grade, so those classes are to provide baking mixes. We never use baking mixes, but I managed to find one in our pantry. It's good I need to go shopping tonight...I'm going to try to have both boys bring something for their classroom's box every day.

Here are today's donations:
AJ - a box of whole
wheat elbow pasta.

Ryan - a box of
cinnamon roll mix.




Ryan's lunch: seitan cutlets;
rice; steamed broccoli; edamame
"snack" with apple peel tongue;
black olives; mini Pez; cucumber
slices; raspberries; baked
blueberry oatmeal (recipe
from Fat-Free Vegan here).


And isn't
this just
the
cutest
hiker
you've
ever
seen??
Even
after
she
head-
butted
a rock...

She
can
really
hustle
down
the
trail
for
short distances...

Because you are such a caring, giving person and you are donating so much right now, I will match what you are donating to the kid's schools and your other food drive and divide it up between my local food bank and the food pantry we have at the county agency I work for. :o)

Melissa you rule! That's totally unnecessary, but totally awesome! Or you could just do the Cans For Comments thing as well on your blog!
