Instalunch

Six months ago, in a desperate search for new toys for Ben and no time to shop or any clue what to shop for, I signed up with Citrus Lane and for the next 6 months received a box of goodies–small toys, a book, baby-related products (lotions, sunscreen, etc.)–every month. It was hit or miss. Some months we got a great toy and a book that was ignored, or the other way around. I decided not to renew my 6 month subscription. But then…in the last box…came THIS:

THAT, internet, that is a Goodbyn lunchbox. I have been wanting one of these for..for…oh,  I don’t know how long. A long time. Just look at that thing! Little compartments of lunchtime mystery and fun. Hmmm. That description doesn’t make it sound that good, does it? Mystery should not be a word associated with lunch.

Anywhooooo….

This lunchbox (yeah, it’s for the kid, but whatever, he doesn’t pack a lunch and he could never eat that much anyway) came at just the right time. It was like a lunchbox from The Universe in answer to my lunchtime boredom. I’d recently tried a week or so of mason jar lunches and found them difficult to shake the dressing around on and just…too much chewing and not enough protein (I have to eat a lot of protein these days; a growing human is largely made of protein and you are what your mama eats, I guess).

I’ve had this thing for a couple of weeks now and have gotten into a lovely routine of making myself a lunch in the evening, after Ben goes to bed and before the kitchen is totally picked up. I’ve had a variety of things and finally got around to snapping a photo today before I inhaled it all at noontime. I’ll try to post some lunch ideas here regularly.

What I Ate for Lunch Today: Salami and cheese and almond crackers, cherries and grapes and strawberries, two hard boiled eggs, almonds and dried figs and dark chocolate, and a nectarine.

Lots of other stuff to catch you up on (down to 5 chickens, Ben turned 17 months old today…so…can I stop counting in months yet?, and we went to the Estes Park wool market again–the last trip was a very popular post). I’ll try and get back here soon!
