So, yesterday I sewed monsters. On the sewing machine. Crafty Momma scores 1 point.
Tonight, I decided rather than rushing around like a lunatic tomorrow morning before school, I would get the kids’ lunches packed. Yup. That’s how good I am. Organized-Prepared-Thoughtful Momma scores another point.
But, who’s keeping track?
Oh, right… I am…
While I was staring helplessly into my fridge, I thought to myself, I can not bear to pack yet another peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Those things are so bad for you, they should be considered a dessert, not a sandwich. The teachers must think we’re awful…
Yet, faced with the option of: 1) my kids need to eat when they are gone all day, so it can’t be too healthy or they won’t touch it, 2) they can’t heat anything up, and: 3) I need to make all the packaging “throw-away” because…well…it gets thrown away.
That doesn’t leave me many options…or them…-
So, my PB&J for tomorrow will have a little twist:
Yes, that is a ducky and bunny cookie cutter. These were the only two that were deep enough for the bread. I have a bunch of thinner cookie cutters that I’m going to start using on lunch meats too. And I’ll have to pick up something more…Tater… for Tater….like a pirate…or an Uzi…or a zombie…
And, if you’re wondering where they came from, that would be the cigar box handed down from Snoopy Grandma. Yes, the same Snoopy Grandma that taught me how to sew.
So, I, of course, also had to look up Evermore Cigars to see if they are still in business. Yes, indeed they are. I couldn’t find a direct business site, which I find odd, but here is a place that sells them in CT:
And here is what they say about them:
“A machine made stogie, never the less, it is a favorite of the “locals” from the Connecticut Tobacco Valley. A local farmer grows the Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper used on this mild blend. The filler is Dominican. The smoothest machine made cigar in my opinion.”
It looks like a box this size would be $89.95 today. Wow. Wonder if that’s “straight”?
