Thank you for coming over and leaving kind words, Annie and Emily! I try to use lots of local fruits and organic veggies in my lunchboxes. I do occasionally have junk food, so it's important to balance it out with fresh fruit and veg.

Thank you dear Ellen, Target & Guido! I don't want to make a cat one because I won't be able to bring myself to eat it.

Annie said...
