It's always hard to resist the
kettle corn at the Farmer's
Market. We also picked up 2
loaves of bread, 2 peaches,
& some bok choy.

The boys built a mini
golf course using every outdoor toy they own, with badminton racquets and plastic baseballs. LOL


Husband's lunch: bean
salad; cherry & grape
tomatoes; Curry
Coleslaw (with 1/2 the
dressing); ww bagel
salad sandwich.

Yet another ramen
noodle lunch for the
boys. I throw away
the seasoning packets
(not vegan), add fresh
or frozen veggies, and
give the noodles a quick
rinse after cooking.
Then I usually add a
little soy sauce.
Boys' lunch: ramen noodles with broccoli; mini spring roll; Animal Parade vitamin; edamame; watermelon.


Flowers from the farm.
I often don't take the
time to pick a bouquet of
flowers, but I managed a
small one this week.

Farm share: 1/4 lb. arugula, cucumber, 1 head lettuce, 1/2 lb. carrots, 4 ears corn, 4 lbs. tomatoes, 1 lb. onions, squash, eggplant, bell peppers, 1 watermelon. Not shown: pick-your-own cherry & grape tomatoes, herbs, swiss chard, kale, collard greens.


Ryan's first day of
kindergarten! The
first day was only
an hour long so no
need to pack any

Ryan is lucky to be
able to walk to school.
This will make it
possible to get him to
kindergarten and the
other two boys to
preschool on time...
I hope!


I went overboard for Ryan's first full day of kindergarten lunch. He requested a Treecko (a Pokemon). Luckily snacktime is brief, so I could just throw in a granola bar. (However, he ended up in the nut-free classroom, so all snacks must be nut-free, but not lunches because they're eaten in the cafeteria. If he wants to eat with a friend at the "nut-free table" in the cafeteria then I'd have to label the outside of his lunchbox as "nut free".
Ryan's lunch: Nate's meatless meatballs; cucumber "Treecko" sitting on top of 12-grain roll-ups of Tofutti cream cheese, smoked Tofurky slices, & lettuce; onigiri Pokeball; steamed broccoli; Pokemon pasta shapes; a lime gel cup...all on a bed of lettuce.
He ate everything, including the lettuce.

While Ryan was at school my first order from Ichiban Kan arrived. Their cute packs of food cutters are great, and everything is so cheap. My only complaint is that they only accept Mastercard & Visa.

I got to
sit down
for lunch
was away,
so I went
all out! If
I can't
have big
(need to
lose the
then at
least it
can be

We celebrated Ryan's
return from his first
full day of kindergarten
with ice cream sandwiches.

Then he immediately
took off to a neighbor's
house to play, ha ha.
Guess he didn't miss
us too much!


Ryan's lunch: soccer ball onigiri; watermelon chunks; tiny gherkin pickle; "chik'n" salad; green salad with shredded carrot, red pepper "flowers", & cucumber "leaves" (Ryan does not like salad dressing); Korean sweet potato crackers; 2 Panda raspberry licorice pieces.

That is an AWESOME Pokeball - makes me miss my little boy soooo much! 16 year olds and pokeman - not so much.
