so i needed inspiration now that chaeli is bringing packed snacks and lunches to summer camp (and will continue doing so for the school year).
maybe i'm just bad at it but i didn't know it would be this hard! and i'm lucky… chaeli's not considered a picky eater for her age. but… she does have expensive taste. i mean, she wants sushi for lunch. and smoked salmon wraps. sheesh! would little miss like some grey poupon? some caviar garnish, perhaps?
anyway, i found two that i like:
both have great ideas – but not just for kids. i actually put sticky notes on pages that i know i'll be using for my own packed lunches.
there was a third that seemed promising in writing – it was a healthy vegetarian lunch box. but it lacked pictures. which is a huge sin for me.
food is a sensory thing – which includes the sense of sight. i still can't get past a cook book that does not use a lot of photos. personally, i need a photo per recipe.
plus, how is a cooking-challenged person like me suppose to make something good if i don't know what it's suppose to look like at the end?
