A Little Girls Packed Lunch

Now I never want to be "that guy" but I was quite pleased with my little girls lunch yesterday. 
She had a sandwich made with homemade bread (my wife made the sandwich when she made her own but I baked the bread!), a tub of tomatoes from the garden and an apple from my parents farm off a tree I planted over a decade ago. 
Good to know where your food comes from - The flour for the bread was even bought from a mill not far from my in-laws and they try to buy local grains where possible.
Now I'm not saying every meal is like this in this house, but I'd like to do it more and more if I can.

  2. It's very satisfying, isn't it?
    We had a meal last week and realised we'd raised the pork (as part of a pig club), made the cider it was cooked in from village apples, grown the apples in the sauce and all the vegetables we had with it :)

  7. Oh gosh, the joy of providing homegrown meals is priceless! I love that you have a mill nearby for the flour. I mill my own, but the grain comes from another part of the world.

  8. This is the time of year when we can enjoy the fruits of our labours. I bet your little girl was very proud of her lunch too.

  11. Such a wonderful way to bring up children! AND make sure they stay healthy!

    Our daughter was raised on homemade bread and given the choice, she would always choose a slice of bread over a homemade cookie. Somehow, I always felt good about that.

  12. My grandsons love to visit my veg garden, pick something, take it to the house to wash, then sit munching. Carrots are a favourite.

  15. Teach them while they are young to eat healthy food, so when they grow up they'll carry the eating habit even when you are not around. Something that I always say to my essay help college students.
