Spring Forward

I've never really enjoyed the time changes of Daylight Savings Time, so I thought I would try to make it a little cheery today.

I made the "spring" from cucumber peel. I tried several times to peel the cucumber so it would be curvy but I am not talented in the ways of peeling fruits and veggies... so my next try was to slice the cucumber as I normally would, then slice the peel off, in a circle, which worked much better. I wrapped the peel around one of my bento basket clothes pins to sit while I made the rest of the lunch. I cut the little leaves with scissors out of the peel scraps from when I was trying to peel the cucumber. Sliced grape tomatoes in half, arranged them on some fresh rice as a flower.

I hardly ever use my veggie cutter but today I found a big fat carrot and got to use my cutter to make a cute little inside to the flower, then I made a bunch of extras for my little one's lunch just for fun.

Dr Seuss' Birthday

I love Dr Seuss so much, what an inspiring man.

"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities." ~Happy Birthday Dr Seuss!

Green Eggs and Ham.  Deviled eggs, I put mustard and Brianna's Poppyseed Dressing, and some food based green coloring. Strawberry and bananas make a Cat in the Hat hat, red and white stripe apples, carrots and red peppers.

Happy National Grammar Day! 

Yes, I am not always the best writer ever, although I do enjoy expressing myself through writing at times. I still at times get confused with some rules, but grateful for some great websites out there! 

Today, we have a semi-colon, a comma, and a colon for your grammar day needs. 

Rice balls with nori, made with a regular hole punch and the eye of one of my face punches. Side of red peppers, carrots, kiwi, and some salami.
