Watermelon and Plum Cake

Monday, November 20, 2006

Posted by bloglily

This morning was a late-rising Monday -- it was so warm in bed and so foggy and chilly outside. And the heat wasn't on! It took us a while to emerge from our cozy beds.

But when my eleven year old son (one of the Tiffin Twins) opens his lunch today, there will be a little bit of summer inside. Watermelon is still yummy here in California and the cake is made with the last of the fall's good plums. (The sandwich? Whole wheat bread, his favorite salami, and some sharp cheddar cheese.)

It's a happy day here in Berkeley, and one reason for that is my discovery that I'm not the only person in the world who's a little obsessed with packing lunches for herself and her children. On Mondays, as time goes on, I'll also be bringing you a few recipes, a snapshot or two from the hot lunches offered by my youngest son's school, some holiday baking, and the lunches we send with our children so they remember how loved they are even when they're away from home.

Have a wonderful week!

Fantastic Lily! Big hugs all the way to San Francisco! It was so exciting checking into the DT today as for the first time I did not know what would be in the lunch box HEHE!

Look forward to much from from sunny California.

On a day like this morning, it was cold food all the way. So, they all had pretty much the same thing. xo, L

What a lovely lunch! You are an inspiration. I am SO tired of packing lunch for my kids.

Hello Yogamum -- I wish we could switch! It'd be fun for us and for the children to see how it's done in other houses. That must be the appeal of sites like this -- I love seeing how other people do what I do every day.
