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.

Other lovely and inspiring things I found this week were...
This bean mosaic. I love the little things.
Avocado salt and pepper shaker. I want one.
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.
