We’ve been enjoying a streak of absolutely beautiful weather lately. The trees are in bloom, my plants are growing, and I don’t have to wear a jacket to stay warm anymore. I love Spring! I tend to feel more creative during the Spring and Summer months.
This is a lunch I packed for my husband, so it not only includes foods I can’t eat, but also a lot more food than I would want to eat. Instead of stopping for lunch, he sometimes snacks throughout the day, so I sometimes try to pack lunches that match his eating style while still ensuring he’s eating healthily. We had just dyed eggs together for the first time, so it inspired me to make his lunch a mini-egg hunt.
Clockwise from the top left: Three silicone cups of fruit salad with dried cranberries, broccoli and grape tomatoes, wasabi dipping sauce hiding some hard candies, stacks of crab California rolls, dried mango wrapped around a hardboiled egg, chocolate and cadbury eggs hiding in broccoli, more mango with another hardboiled egg, and some baby carrots.
I liked the little tomatoes hiding in the broccoli with the candy and chocolates; they seem to be a bit egg-shaped themselves.
