A month ago my sister in law mentioned this certain brand of gelato she adores by saying it is the best thing she’s ever put in her mouth. Somehow both my brother and I have the same pea sized brain which created an innuendo out of the phrase. This week I put this tuna salad in my mouth and I suggest you put it in your mouth as well.
I made this recipe one afternoon for lunch and spent the entire meal saying out loud, “Wow, this is so good.” Just in case I wasn’t actually tasting it myself. This is one of the downfalls of working from home, no one to hear how delicious my tuna salad is. Except you I guess. Here it is all mixed up.
Here it is ready to get in my mouth.
Shockingly, my 6 year old ate some of this on crackers making it possibly a kid friendly option. But then, I wouldn’t count on it since capers and onions make a lot of kids run screaming (my 8 year old included).
Since we’re back on lunches I wanted to point out a couple items sent to me after last week’s Simplified Bento post. Sheryl of This Mouse sent along the idea to use silicone cupcake liners in your lunch boxes. I picked some up this weekend and think they are far more effective than the coffee filter I was using before.
Also Mary pointed me to this Flickr group, Kid Eats. Some offerings are more involved than I’ll ever attempt but others are exactly the kind of lunch I can easily see myself packing and my kids actually eating.
I’m really surprised how packing these tiny containers is changing the way I feel about packing my kid’s lunches.
