Lunchbox #4

As you can see, the shrimp cocktail didn't materialize. There's a good reason for that: I had a lot of leftover boiled eggs in the fridge, and the frozen (uncooked) shrimp could wait til another time. So here are the goods:

Today, my preschooler's lunch featured (clockwise):
  • Two boiled, peeled eggs
  • Chopped dates - aka "dessert". My preschooler asked me what was going to be her dessert and she seemed perfectly content with the dates as her option. She also, however, regaled me with stories about what the other kids had for dessert in their lunchboxes. Oy.
  • Baby carrots and sliced green peppers
  • Sliced wedge of brie
  • Wasabi asparagus 
What's that, you say? You've never heard of asparagus with wasabi? Well, you're in for a treat. I originally got the flavor combo idea from Fat Free Vegan's SusanV, having made asparagus with wasabi many, many times since. Tonight, I did it up simply, sauteeing the asparagus in a couple of pinches of powdered wasabi and a largish pat of salted Kerrygold until just crisp-tender, enough for flavor and just the tiniest hint of heat. Halving the asparagus spears before sauteeing made them just the right size to fit into the purple box. :)


  1. Sounds tasty I wish you were packing my lunches.

  2. Hey I just found your blog. Love foodie primal blogs. Have added you to my links.

  3. Wasabi asparagus sounds fantastic! Can't wait to try that out!!

  4. Oddball question, but where did you find those awesome lunch boxes?

  5. Welcome, AdamsMommy! Those are Laptop Lunches lunchboxes. I love, love, love ours. Both lunchbox itself (sold with carrying case and water bottle) and extra inner boxes can be purchased on Amazon (best price I've seen for them anywhere).
