Eco–Box 101

Filed under: Food and drink — Boite a Lunch @ 22:15

An Eco-box, you said? you know what I mean: something reusable, not ‘trashable’. The rules? Here are mine:
1- Find a reusable box.
2- Find a reusable box your kids CAN open!
3- Find a reusable box your kids can open and that won’t open by itself in their bags!!
4- Find a reusable box your kids won’t lose (good luck with that!).
5- Find a BIG enough reusable box your kids can’t lose.
6- Find a reusable water bottle.
7- Find a reusable water bottle… (see #1-5).
8- Find a reusable bag, mark their name on it!
9- Find reusable utensils
10- Try to get rid of plastic.. (I haven’t fully complied with that rule yet)

Here are a couple of example I looked at and/or tried:

To-Go Ware® - 2-Tier Stainless Steel Food CarrierGreat box, not easy for kids to open New Wave Enviro Stainless Steel Food ContainerGreat box, easy to open, but not tight enough for liquid. LunchBots Duo Stainless Steel Lunch Box/Food ContainerHaven’t tried this one but seems a nice alternative (different sizes too)

 

Best water bottle I found so far:

Klean Kanteen Stainless Steel Water Bottle  

comes with different sizes too

As for bags, this one worked really well for us, but there are other options too:

reuseit™ Insulated Lunch Bag, Recycled PET, Medium

Day 19

Filed under: Food and drink — Boite a Lunch @ 22:02

This menu is very similar to the Day 18’s menu. But there is a twist. We bought Concord Grape. I had never tasted anything like it. The kids named it the “candy” grape. It is so sweet it taste like a candy! So here is our ‘Menu du jour’:

2010_09_27

  • Sandwich dinde, fromage de chèvre
  • Tomates cerises, carottes
  • Raisin Concord
  • Pommes
  • Cake à la pomme de terre douce et noisette
 

2010_09_27

  • Turkey and Goat cheese sandwich
  • Tomatoes, carrots
  • Concord Grape
  • Apple
  • Sweet potato and hazelnut bread

Les enfants avaient demandé un menu similaire à celui du 18ème jour. Mais nous avons entre temps découvert quelque chose: nous avons acheté du raisin “Concord”. Ce raisin a un gout extraordinaire. Il est tellement sucré qu’on dirait un bonbon. Les enfants ont adorés !

Local food

Filed under: Food and drink — Boite a Lunch @ 21:33

Since we moved to Seattle three years ago, we have been trying to shop more and more local and organic. The idea was also to cook with local ingredients (sometimes very different from what was available in Paris). It has also forced us to change our culinary habits a bit and to find new seasonal menus. I must say that I have re-discovered some recipes and vegetables. Here is one of the big surprise for me: carrots. I always thought a carrot is a carrot, taste should not change that much. But here in my local store, I have discovered this carrot. I mean look at that, it looks like my grandma’s garden vegetable! And it taste amazing. This carrot’ season only last a month but they are divine!

2010   2010

Depuis que nous avons déménagé à Seattle, il y a trois ans, nous avons essayé d’acheter de plus en plus de produits locaux et biologiques. Il faut dire que nous avons à notre disposition des magasins bien fournis et à prix relativement abordable, surtout comparé à Paris. Nous avons dû changer un peu nos habitudes culinaires et avons choisi d’adapter nos menus aux saisons. Nous avons aussi redécouvert certains gouts. Une carotte est une carotte me direz-vous ? Et bien regardez celle-là! On dirait qu’elle sort du jardin (oui c’est vrai, mais pas du mien) et elle a un gout absolument incroyable ! La saison ne dure qu’un mois mais on l’attend avec impatience tous les ans.
