I packed my hubby a National Guacamole Day bento! Sailor Boy's favourite Dr. Seuss book is Green Eggs & Ham so I thought I'd make him smile with a green eggs & ham salad sandwich in his lunch. Of course I had to tell him that's what it was to get the smile ;)

Guacamole Green Eggs & Ham Salad Sandwich
Ingredients:
  • 1 Wholly Guacamole mini (or 2oz Wholly Guacamole) 
  • 2 hard-cooked eggs
  • 2 slices deli ham
  • 2 slices bread
Directions:
  1. Peel & chop eggs. 
  2. Chop ham. 
  3. Combine eggs & ham with guacamole in a bowl & stir/mash until desired consistency. 
  4. Spread on a slice of bread, top with another slice, & cut if desired.
  5. Pack or enjoy!
I also packed green grapes, a Babybel cheese, & NatureSweet Sunbursts tomatoes in the side containers of his Laptop Lunches bento. I used a bento cutting tool to carve OMG! in the Babybel wax coating, & spelled OMGuac! with alphabet bento picks in his sandwich :)

Last of all, I added a Lunchbox Love note atop his Laptop Lunches Bento Buddies lid to remind hubby to #GuacItForward too :)


Wholly Guacamole Minis come in Classic, Spicy, Ranch, Chunky & Organic varieties! I used Spicy in my egg salad sandwich - Sailor Boy likes it hot!

    1. Thank you! There was a family that did the same for us when my oldest daughter was little and it made a world of difference. I'm glad to be able to do the same for another family.

  2. Recently I was picking up some last minute school supplies when I overheard a couple discussing the long list of required school supplies for one of their two kids (one was probably in kindergarten while the other was maybe 2). The dad told mom to get only what was absolutely necessary as they didn't have enough money to purchase it all.

    After paying for my purchase, I gave the cashier a description of the couple and handed her some money to pay for their daughter's supplies. It should have covered what I saw in their cart and hopefully they went back for more items. They never even noticed me nor did I want them to. I just wanted their little girl to have the things she needed to go to school.

  3. We try to do something every day to spread a little joy in the world. Sometimes it's as little as returning carts in the parking lot that might roll into a car, or saying something kind to someone who seems down. Some days we get to do larger things like provide extra lunches for the homeless through a program at our school, or donate much needed supplies to some local organizations we love and respect. But, Scout and I aim for at least one good deed a day. :)
