I made this waffle with ice cream and sour cherries for my husband. I think that he would be happy if there was a waffle day every week.
Today is my husband’s birthday so I made a special lunch for him. He loves muffins and fruit so it was a natural choice.

I had fun making and eating this Happy Snail lunch. The snail is mashed potato with these eye picks and spinach details. I used a cookie cutter from the Ikea Woodland set to make the snail shape. Since I don’t like nori, I used spinach instead to detail the snail’s shell. As usual, I enjoyed drawing on pistachio shells.
Container: Wooden box purchased in Kyoto at Bento&co.
Contents: Broccoli, orange cheddar mashed potatoes, spinach, chickpeas, spiced tomato sauce, pistachios with food marker details, blueberries
I don’t live in New York City but I live in New York State and decided that this would be a fun theme for a lunch. Also I had the Statue of Liberty cookie cutter. I made the Statue of Liberty from a tortilla that I baked with a little olive oil and cinnamon sugar.

My oldest nephew turned 18 this week! I made this lunch for him to take to school on his birthday. His school has a microwave for students to use so I put the raspberries in a silicone cup so his fruit and chocolate were easy to remove before heating. This is a big meal as I added pasta around the peppers. For a smaller appetite you can just serve in the peppers. But since I made it for a teenage boy I provided a large portion of pasta.
This was my first time stuffing peppers with pasta, in the past I used rice. I had some for my dinner and enjoyed it.
Also featured for the first time is my new EasyLunchBoxes Urban. These easy and convenient containers now come in three color sets: Classic, Brights, and Urban.
