Simple Nut-Free Lunches

Friday, 10/5/12 - A lunch to enjoy at our CSA farm while we picked up our weekly produce share! Both our lunches are nut-free (for no particular reason, other than I prefer SunButter with my celery, and it was already out and open when I made her sandwich!) Both are also vegetarian; in fact, except for the Ranch, both are vegan as well.
Mama's Lunch
SunButter Ants on a Log, orange and purple carrots, golden beets, green summer squash,
baguette slices, cherry tomatoes, hummus, dipping oil
I still had the last of the baguette from my Bruschetta, and it wasn't going to last much longer. So I sliced it up and crammed it all in. To dip, I mixed some extra-virgin olive oil with Italian seasoning. It was okay, but it didn't have time to absorb all the flavors first. But my Mini Dipper never leaked! (Despite my best efforts to knock my lunch around! Sheesh.)

Z's Lunch
Red grapes, golden raspberries, summer squash, golden beet, carrot sticks,
SunButter-honey sandwich, Ranch, raisins
Even though it was waaaaay bigger than I needed, I wanted a water-tight sauce box that she could open herself. And my Mini Dippers were all dirty. Or tossed into the "put your bento crap away" pile all willy-nilly, so I didn't have time to find a container and a lid. This one was in my "sauce boxes" tub.

She saw that I had the raisins out for my lunch, and asked for some, so I managed to squeeze in a mini muffin cupful last-minute.
