Well, school is over and summer day camp has officially begun. And with it came rain, wind and cooler weather. Huh. Keira was a bit nervous heading back to her day camp wondering if any of her friends were going to be there but I know her. Whether or not they will be there, she always makes new friends anyway.
Today is rainy and cool and I thought a warm lunch would be heartier and apropo to this weather. So today, she has a thermos full of a trio of pasta (shells, penne and rotini) with her Papa's home made meat sauce. And now with farmer's markets brimming with seasonal veggies, it's a great time to add sweet tomatoes and other yummy veggies to the sauce! psst! She won't know...
With the pasta, I added a watermelon and strawberry salad. These are Quebec strawberries! Deep red colour, a bit smaller but so packed with sweetness and flavour. Mm! I love that triangular bento box that I got for Keira from Lunch-à-Porter. So handy and so pretty.
Some of you may wonder about the hashtag on twitter/instagram/facebook #twitterfoodparty. It was started by Shirley of www.lovelylanvin.com and it's a fun way of creating dishes and posting them up for everyone to see and share. Twitterfoodparty happens every first week of each month with a different theme or food. This month was #twitterstrawberryparty. Join up next month! The theme/food will be... cheese!
