I have survived many experiences this week.
Remember that conference I was talking about in my last post? Well it was a success! Vivian did an amazing job talking about her dairy allergy and the blog. She was so nervous!
We also showed our popsicle video we made for Vita Coco this summer and everyone loved it! We got to talk with all different kinds of educators from all over the world about blogging and dairy allergies and education. We learned so much and had a blast!
The other experience I survived from was a WATER SPOUT THAT TOOK OUT MY HOUSE! Not literally, but I live on the third floor of my house and my door started shaking like crazy.
My sweet dog, Emma, just stared at me like, “this is it” and my mom and sister started screaming.
One of our neighbors came running over and when she opened the door all the other doors sucked open and banged against the house.
Our furniture is in the pool, tree branches are in my sister’s room along with some kid’s toy from down the street, our grill is flipped upside down, and all our outdoor pillows are in the garden in the backyard.
What a storm.
So now that I can rejoice that I’m alive, I want to celebrate with you by sharing one of my favorite easy-to-make lunch boxes: the BLT box!
With that yummy marble rye bread and crispy pieces of bacon, giant fresh slices of ugly tomatoes, crunchy tart arugula, and some mayo. The “sides” of this delish box are festive pomegranate fruit salad (coming at ya on wednesday) and sweet potato and cinnamon chips.
Wholesome, healthy, with a little bit of guilt and a whole lotta flavor all up in there. Holla.
Also, did you happen to notice the new revamped look of our website? Vivian & Me got a facelift!
Now let’s ring in this holiday season with a happy festive lunchbox! Who’s with me?
- 2 slices of bread
- earth balance butter
- 2 slices fresh tomatoes
- handful of arugula
- 4 slices bacon, cooked
- pomegranate fruit salad
- chips of your choice
- Spread earth balance on the slices of bread and place them on a skillet on medium heat until browned on both sides. Remove from heat.
- Spread mayo across one slice of bread and then layer with the tomatoes, arugula, and bacon. Cut the sandwich in half and place in the lunchbox.
- Add the fruit salad and chips and enjoy!
