Balsamic Garlic Chicken with Avocado on Ciabatta

I love this sandwich because its my kinda combination. Simple and luxurious! Plus, is there a better chicken lover than avocado? They were born to be lovers, wouldn’t you agree? I decided to make this when I needed a sandwich to accompany pumpkin soup on our ‘soup and sandwich’ night. I wanted something flavorful and…

My lover, Pumpkin Soup

One day while roaming the internet I happened upon The Pioneer Woman‘s blog. I immediately fell in love. Its just that simple. I love her blog. Moving on.

Bento boxes & help from my Bento Box mentor!

Recently I was visiting the Facebook page of my unofficial Bento Box mentor Wendy from Wendolonia. I have always LOVED her pictures of food. Clear, simple, straight forward and decidedly kid-like.

Here goes: This box has…

Bento Box for 9/4-9/7 + My first and last intricate bento box!!

Last week had a holiday in it and the kids spent a few nights at my parents house (#winning) so I didn’t make a Bento every day. I did however, go grocery shopping and somehow my little double decker cart steered it self down the cupcake decoration isle and magically stopped infront of THE CUTEST…
