The saucy jettatore fluttered the dovecots with the purfled celibatarian, or What's for Lunch Wednesday.

I'm back with a bento. Here's a shared snack we brought to the pool the other day:

On the left are no-bake brownie fifteens (recipe from Healthful Pursuit) and pecans, and on the right, some dried fruit and orange slices.

And a picture of the boys:

The chuffy bouffage cowsed with the bosky cadger, or What's for Lunch Wednesday.

Here are some recent Zachary bentos. Let's see...something with quinoa, carrots (with a hard candy hidden underneath for April Fool's Day), pita and hummus:

 Strawberries, cheese, ants on a log with figs, pretzel, sunburst tomatoes, and mixed nuts:

Carrots for dad & sunburst tomatoes for Z, trail mix, sardine and avocado sandwich (covered for Z so his friend who told him his figs looked like poop wouldn't make fun of him):

Quinoa meatloaf muffins, chocolate chip bunny cookies, clementines, sunburst tomatoes:

The cromulent criticaster toozled the alexiteric mistresspiece, or Snow ice cream.

It's our fourth day out of school but the first real snow day. The others were ice days. We can't get down our driveway because of the ice and, apparently,  the only snow plows here are being used for the Super Bowl. We're out of ice cream. We could have made real ice cream, but that takes five hours. So instead we made snow ice cream.

We played while our bowl collected snow:

When the bowl was full we mixed sweetened condensed milk and a teaspoon of vanilla into it, and then we ate:
