Happy Birthday to Jason Schwartzman!

To celebrate Jason Schwartzman on his birthday I'm revisiting one of my favorites: Rushmore!
Mac & cheese & veggies with cheese art & letters, cut up sausage & some ice cream ... because what's a birthday without ice cream?

Edible Lovefest for Being Human's Hal Yorke

An edible lovefest for Hal Yorke — Damien Molony’s character in Being Human:
Chicken & pineapple mac & cheese (don’t knock it til you’ve tried it.
Provolone palm trees (for Honolulu Heights), quote and dominoes.
And even with the ice cream (perfectly portioned in a cup from AllThingsForSale) and red velvet petit fours …. 588 calories total!

Craig! Craig? Breakfast. It's normal. Craig?

Today marks the third anniversary of the original airdate of “The Lodger” — one of my favorite Doctor Who episodes! My best friend & I watched it together in the middle of the night (followed by “Closing Time”) and I had to make a lunch … errr … breakfast. (I even used one of her recipes!)

Share The Love With Lunchbox Love!

The wonderful folks at SayPlease recently sent me a wonderful present — and then said that they would do the same for one of my readers!

What I received was a pack of four Lunchbox Love sets — two for Camp (since the summer school program John is doing this year is more day-camp than school in feel), For Those You Appreciate, and For Loved Ones. The notes are about the size of gift cards and fit perfectly in a lunch box, gym bag, snuck in as a bookmark, or left just laying around to surprise someone. Each has a loving message on the front and quote or bit of trivia on the back (John loves the trivia ones — especially if they’re about gross things or animals!)

All you need to do to win your own set is leave a comment about a surprise note you have received — or would like to receive!  One comment is all it takes and then on Monday June 17th I will use to pick a winner! (Please make sure that you sign in to comment using an email address I can contact you at — otherwise I will have to pick again.)

The IT Crowd for me ... snacky for him

John and I decided to split the leftover wings we had for dinner tonight for our work and school lunches tomorrow. Mine with some pasta and Moss in my new black+blum Box Appetit … his with his typical lunchbox go-withs and a Lunchbox Love note from SayPlease. Stop back by tomorrow and I’ll be having a giveaway so you can get some Lunchbox Love of your own!
