Happy Diwali!

A very happy Diwali and prosperous New Year 
to all those who celebrate the Festival of Lights!

I slept in big time today and we barely made it out the door. No pics of the sproutlets' lunches, but don't worry, you're not missing anything, they were not at all artfully arranged - but they were nutritious and packed with love (heheh, nod to my fellow scary bento mommies). Oh, I do have a pic of Pickle's though, I already had his sandwich made up. It's not as colourful and intricate as the gorgeous Rangoli designs I've seen delicious sweets arranged in during Diwali, but hey, it's a peanut butter sandwich :)

I made Birdie and Sprout some cute little egg, tomato & cheese "Diwali lamps" for after preschool snack, and read to them about the Hindu holiday. They gobbled the eggs up - and they didn't eat eggs until I started making them "cute" - yay for new healthy foods! Silly Sprout said "Hey, it's like birthday candles! Is Diwali also because of my birthday?" (It's her birthday today) ☀

Fun Diwali snack or appetizer - egg lanterns !
