So Easy, So Delicious, So Much Fun to Eat
by Marnie Hanel; Jen Stevenson
This was the perfect time for me to discover this book and let others know about it. School is just beginning. Are you a person who regularly needs to pack a lunch for a child you know? Would you like to do this with a bit more elan and flair?
Surprise someone by making their lunch tasty and fun. It will feel doable after spending time with this book and its many ideas.
The author begins with a chapter called Lunch Logistics. It provides all the information that is needed for the following chapters.
One of the many things that I enjoyed seeing was all the ways that a mini Babybel cheese could be decorated. This is just one of their whimsys.
The authors seem to like bento box style lunches. Many of these involve assembling not needing to know anything special about cooking or baking. Others do involve some cooking but the recipes feel very doable. For example, one lunch box includes peanut noodles (recipe included) along with apple slices, rice cracker mix, tangerine and raspberries, and edamame. Yes, the noodles are a bit more sophisticated than peanut butter and jelly but that may be just the thing. Others such as a suggested first day of school lunch are simple and creative. For example assemble a pencil whose base is cheddar cheese.
Recommended for those who are creative and view lunch as a fun challenge. Their lucky kids will enjoy opening thier lunch boxes.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Artisan Books for this title. All opinions are my own.
