I fly to Toronto tomorrow for a national conference for LGBTQ-A caregivers and allies. I am absolutely thrilled beyond words to be asked to go, and can’t wait for the awesome learning that I’ll be getting. I’m looking forward to bringing back new ideas, and I know this conference will be a stepping stone to sharing ideas and providing education and resources for the teachers and students of British Columbia’s public schools.
Now to the food. I have two flights tomorrow, and the snack choices provided (pretzels or pretzels) won’t be gluten-free (although there will be ginger ale, which I only tend to drink when I fly, so I’m excited for that, even though I just got back from Vancouver where I drank it there and back on the plane). So I took matters into my own hands and made a rainbow bento to snack on. I didn’t have a purple liner, but I used my purple bento box so the colour is represented. I have dried cranberries, crystallized ginger, rice crackers, dark chocolate with peppermint crème, and cocoa-covered peanuts.
