Bento for Baby 25: Sun Butter and Honey Ak-Mak and Eggplant Chickpea Burger
Baby Girl had a treat for breakfast on this morning, a sunbutter and honey sandwich made with her favorite 100% whole wheat Ak-Mak crackers. As I've mentioned previously, I bought a sunbutter without any sweetener or other additives and it needs a bit of honey to make it a bit less bitter. She also had some blueberries in the red silicone cup with her breakfast. For lunch I packed an Eggplant Chickpea Burger that I made for dinner a few nights previously. I made a few extra small ones and put them in the freezer for future lunches. These burgers are another great recipe from The Flying Biscuit Cafe Cookbook: Breakfast and Beyond. They are a really tasty and satisfying veggie burger. And it's a great way to use the plethora of eggplant we get with our CSA share! In addition to the burger, Baby Girl also had one pizza palmier, a few green beans and some cubes of watermelon. This was packed in the small and medium Kids Konserve Nesting Trio Stainless Steel Containers with Leak-Proof Lids.
