I love when you share your weekly menus, they are such great a source of inspiration! I had to share this in my January favourite. Have a look if you have a second! http://www.croque-maman.com/january-14-web-favourites/. Meanwhile have a lovely day 🙂 Helene.
Love this blog so much! We too are in the Los Angeles area (I have a 2 1/2 year old and 2 month old), and we often go to the beach. When you mention going to the beach and having fish tacos is that at a restaurant? We are always looking for a new place to get fresh fish and grab a bite. Currently we go to the Reel Inn in Malibu.
Thank you 🙂 We like to go to the Beach Cafe at the Annenberg Community Beach House in Santa Monica. It's adequate and reasonable. I usually share an order of fish tacos with my son with rice and black beans, and order a side of avocado and sweet potato fries to share. He loves that lunch 🙂 Plus the restaurant is in the sand, which is great. We'll have to try the Reel Inn next time we're in Malibu.
This is a very interesting lunch box! I’m glad your son eats such a nutritious meal at a young age. With vegetables like carrots and potatoes, mixed with fine choices of fruits such as pineapple and strawberries along with a good portion of lamb meat and fish, your son’s lunch boxes contain very well-balanced meals. Thanks for sharing your lunch box ideas!
