First Day of JK

Today was my little girls first day of JK. It is only a half day today, but she will attend full time 5 days a week starting Monday. She is so excited; I however barely held it together. They just grow up too fast.

Today I just had to pack 1 snack, and *A* requested her Mini Mouse box. I really planned to do my school lunch shopping this weekend, so we just worked with what we had in the house.

My very FIRST JK Bento
From left to Right:
Clementine and Grape Flower Blossom, raisins, Sugar/Dairy/Gluten Free Zucchini Bread cut into circles with a bow food pick to look like Mini, Ground Cherries.

Ground Cherries are so delicious; I had them for the first time last year when we received them in our weekly CSA (Community Shared Agriculture). My kids love them, as do I. They are juicy and sweet, and they travel well, popping right out of the husk.

They are in the tomato family, and like a goose berry (so I hear, I haven't eaten a goose berry before)


  1. I've never heard of ground cherries, but my husband's family LOVES gooseberries. I bet you'd come up with some great gooseberry recipes.

  2. Thank you! I am thinking about a pie :)
