boring edamame

Spent the day with the family today - didn't spend much time on the lunchbox, so nothing cute or fancy today.

 So, I'll give you a little backstory instead...

My kids LOVE hot, steamed edamame in the pods with a little sea salt on top.  I am not sure if it is the fact that they can use their hands or  because they get to suck the soy beans out of the pods, but either way they love it.  Triple bonus points that it is green and healthy!

Well, the girl was with me the last time we were buying edamame.  DORA was on the bag.  We HAD to buy the DORA ones!  Well, dear dora was only on the bag of the organic pre-shelled edamame, not the 'suck 'em out' kind (Spongebob was on that bag).  I removed them from the Dora package, because Dora is not so cool to a second grade boy.

I'm not so sure how these are going to go over with all the fun taken out that goes along with the 'in the pod' variety.  I'll let you know how it goes!  To me, they look more like lima beans in this form.  BAD childhood memories of many a nights at the table staring at lima beans.  I shudder at the thought.

organic carrot sticks with blue cheese dip, a little blends yogurt, a homemade organic banana muffin, and a sliced organic kiwi finish off this lunch.


  1. They need to switch characters because Kidlet wanted the Spongebob ones and he has trouble eating them out of their pods so they can't go to school with him and he did not want Dora :P
