Yay! Your back..... I was getting worried about you and wondered where you had gone.
I was worried about my son poking himself too, so I use straws. Coffee stirrers are perfect, but regular ones would work too.
I cut the stirrers in half so he doesn't jab himself in the mouth, and the stirrers are small enough to hold the food without breaking it or splitting it. My son loves them and hasn't poked himself yet.
That says alot as he is still receiving Occupational therapy for difficulties with small motor skills. The kabobs are easy for him to manage.

Can I leave out the tahini? I don't know what that is even?

Thanks! Ha Ha, nope not a goner yet!
Great idea!

Wares, tahini is sesame seed paste. It's imperative.
Tastes and looks a little like peanut butter! Kinda hard to find, look in gourmet grocery stores. I actually buy mine at a fancy gas station!! LOL!!!

Fly gap,

Can you adopt me? I want a mom like you! Those dishes are amazing and you feed your kids so well. You should be proud of yourself.

The only thing I might add, is my kids like Nori, the dry papery seaweed used to make sushi. I bought it in small packages. They liked that.
I used to make riceballs with a little smoked salmon in the middle, Japanese style.

I used granny smith apples sliced , tossed in lemonwater, then again in sugar/cinnamon mixture, so kind of "apple pie".

Carrot sticks and peanut butter.

Canned herring (when they got older)

Left over spaghetti, fried, then in a small container

Can't think of what else. My lunches were not nearly as good as yours. I am a bad mom when it comes to nutrition.

Flygap is going to adopt me first, take a number!

You should do youtube videos fly. It could pay off!

Sesame stuff available in a "fancy gas station"? I would love to see the place. I frequent a health food store for the range fed eggs. Its the 2 bucks a pound for "organic" bananas type of place w quite a few "me so sophisticated" patrons . I really enjoy going in just to people is entertaining.

Lol!! Come on! I'd feed ya!
Even though it's just the three of us here I cook for an army. Stew is made in 5 gallon pots, lasagnas that feed 30!! I freeze most of what I don't give away to family!

YouTube would ROCK! I got a recipe off there for a fruit/cookie mandala that turned out amazing, google it!

The gas station is a WONDERLAND! I get in so much trouble there. They have two amazing chefs with a gourmet take out bar that's better than the best restaurants in town. Pretty funny.
I'll see if she likes the nori! She loves sushi and miso soup, I just have a hard time finding fresh seafood in AR, LOL! Canned will work if it's from the us, did you know that smoked oysters in the can come from CHINA!!!! Totally bummed when I found that out!
