My computer has been resurrected. Hip, hip, hooray!
The culprit was a Windows update that had just been done prior. Apparently there are tons of Windows users who have had massive computer crashes following this latest update. "The Black Screen of Death" they call it. Be warned! I am hugely disgruntled over that whole thing - mega zillion dollar company's booboo causing mayhem for all its peon customers...do you think they will do anything to make their error right? Ha, yeah, me neither. *grumble grumble*
On to some fun stuff. Two Laptop Lunches for my two littles. These were from a week or so ago...right before aforementioned computer distress.
A bit of fun news, we found our missing pink Laptop Lunches box! I had hidden it from myself on top of the kitchen cabinets. My search up there turned up all sorts of treasures I had forgotten about. Like stocking stuffers that never made it out of Christmas last year. Oh well, 'tis the season (again) after all!
Paige's Laptop Lunch contained:
- two homemade granola bites and a mini container of sunflower kernels
- strawberries with cute lion pick (open up and say "ahh!")
- golfish crackers
- banana and peanut butter soft tacos (with raisins, too)
The banana/raisin/peanut butter tacos are in the container that comes with it's own sealing lid, ensureing that the rest of the food doesn't absorb the banana scent & flavor, which can be a problem with cut bananas in a bento box.
Tyler had almost the same lunch.
He had blackberries instead of strawberries (and no pick because I'm not about to give that crazy two-year-old a sharp stick), and I rolled his tortillas to be more of a wrap than a taco. This made them easier to hold and stuff in his mouth. :)
I ordered the little cases for sunflower kernels and the matching picks from ATFS. Hmm, speaking of stocking stuffers.... :)
