Chip's lunch: April 14, 2010

Something tells me I'm going to get an earful about this lunch. I think everything will be acceptable to Chip except the peas and corn. I made them his favorite way (with butter and Season All), but I think he'll eat this lunch and still be hungry, while also being mad that he had to eat peas and corn.

I wrote him a nice lovey note that I included with the lunch, and maybe that will distract him...I hope!

Sandwich on local whole wheat bread with avocado (there's a full half of a large avocado there, but it's kinda hidden by the lettuce), Campari tomato, Cheddar, red onion, and organic redleaf lettuce, organic Michigan applesauce, Clif Z Bar, banana, and peas and corn steamed with butter and spices.


  1. What kind of lunch box do you use?

  2. It's the Laptop Lunches Bento 2.0 set ( Coupon code veglunchbox gets you 10% off!

  3. I see that you always use Campari tomatoes: what are they? How are they different from, say a Roma tomato? Where can I find them? (I live in CA)

  4. I like (OK, love) Camparis because they're less mealy than Romas. I think they're sweeter and juicier too, and have that beautiful bright red color. They are sold in a plastic clamshell near the rest of the tomatoes, and they come on the vine. Our Costco sells them, as do our two local grocery stores (Kroger and Giant Eagle). I never bought them when I lived in CA (South Bay) but I imagine Safeway would have them.
