Solving Your Kitchen Problems One Friday at a time {giveaway and inspiring links}

Reusable sandwich bags 
are my favorite.

It's back to school baby! Well, for some people it is. We still have a month left of vacation, we're not complaining. That doesn't mean we're not gearing up and getting amped for school either. Enzo will be starting pre-k in the fall and for the first time he'll have somewhere to go every single weekday. Yay! I mean...so sad. I'm conflicted. Christian is also gearing up for another school year, his 22nd year. 

School is fun!

Packing lunch is also fun and I'm going to run a series of giveaways to help you help them (the kids) be more sustainable. Plastic baggies are a waste. There I said it, now excuse me while I go outside and hug my favorite redwood tree.

Solution: Reusable sandwich bags. Ohhhh ahhhhh beautiful.


HarrietsHaven offers handmade reusable sandwich/snack bags that I personally think are exquisitely charming. It's made from natural cotton and lined in muslin. Completely washable. Completely cute. 

I want the ladybug for me 

You can get one too. 
Actually you get two. 

HarrietsHaven is offering two reusable sandwich/snack bags for one of my readers. So much kindness!

Details, Details

Other lovely and inspiring things I found this week were...

This bean mosaic. I love the little things.


Ice cream cone balloons is just one of those good ideas. Found via oh happy day

This eating fruit with salt post was awesome. I'm glad I'm not the only one who puts salt on my watermelon. 

This Guava suffle post was also awesome. 
Oh, and you're gonna love this story. So once a week I write a food column for the local newspaper. This week I posted my corn cake with guava paste recipe and right on the first line I say that we call corn bread, corn cake in Brazil because it has a lot of sugar. AND THEN the recipe was printed in the newspaper missing one very important ingredient. THE SUGAR. I forgot to add the 1 cup sugar that the recipe needs.

 Oh the e-mails and comments I got! Luckily the online version got changed. You can check it out here.

good times.

  14. I like "walk this way" (but we all know I have a thing for birds) and the tree one. If I don't win I think I may just have to buy some of these. With two kids needing lunches every day (well, almost) it's going to be a long school year!
