Daily Bento

4 Apr

Camryn tried tzatziki last night for the first time and loved it.

Just in case you have no idea what I’m talking about, tzatziki is a yogurt based sauce with cucumbers, garlic, dill, lemon juice, olive oil, and maybe a little sour cream depending on who’s making it.

She’s never been interested in dips, dressings, sauces or gravies. However there are a few exceptions.

Cream cheese on bagels? Yes.

Nutella on toast? Absolutely.

Hummus on pita? Not on your life, Jack!

Yeah, it pretty much ends there.

In an effort to expand her culinary horizons, I thought I’d try a little taste test with her yesterday afternoon.

I can report that hummus is still a no go but tzatziki – that was a total winner.

She was dipping and munching, all the while telling me about all the things that she thought would go well with it. Celery, carrots, cucumber, apples.


Yeah, she totally went there.

So she has tzatziki in her lunch today and I have a feeling that it will be making an appearance quite often in the next few days.

One of the things I’ve learned about littles is that they will love something one day and then forget they ever liked it the next.

True fact.

So when my kids try something new and like it, that new food goes into heavy rotation so they don’t conveniently forget how they originally felt about it.

Here’s what’s in today’s lunch:

  • PB sandwiches
  • Crackers with tzatziki for dipping
  • Hello Panda cookies
  • Broccoli
  • Watermelon
  • Organic fruit leather
