Spaghetti with home-made tomato sauce and some pine nuts on top. Tasty sides are a clementine and about 1/2 an apple dipped in lemon water to prevent browning. I love that one piece of apple has a bruise that I didn’t notice when preparing the bento, but it lit up in a circle when the flash hit it!
Snack is banana bread – easy to make if your children are like mine and let bananas go spotty with the intent of reminding me we have spotty bananas and can I make banana bread please?
