Dear Dean McDermott,
Aren’t you the guy who married Tori Spelling?
You really haven’t been on my radar, but then I stumbled on your blog. In particular, I found myself reading your post Think Outside the Brown Bag, which is all about making food cute and packing it in cute bento boxes.
Dean, I’m going to call you out. See, you called bento boxes “new”, but they’ve been around awhile. I know this because bento boxes have made me feel like a bad mom for at least a couple years because I don’t use them.
You also suggest cookie cutters become my new best friend. So I can use them on cucumber slices. Tsk, tsk, Dean. My kids aren’t eating cucumber slices unless they are dipped in chocolate, deep fried, or come with at least a $5 bill attached to taking a bite. You did show a picture of cheese cut in the shape of butterflies. But that’s just extra work ’cause my kids will actually eat cheese, no matter what shape it’s in.
“Use cupcake wrappers to separate snacks within each compartment of your bento box” you continue. But then you showed a picture of CORN in the cupcake wrapper. Dude! If I put a cupcake in the cupcake wrapper, my kids will eat it, but corn? Who is going to eat cold corn in a cupcake wrapper?
“Be sure to include lots of seasonal fruits and veggies, along with the more savory lunch components, like hummus,” you finish. Well, you lost me at “seasonal” and “savory lunch components”. Is PB& J considered “seasonal” or a “savory lunch component”?
Give my love to Tori and the kids and don’t be offended that I’m not capable of thinking outside the brown bag. I am the Experienced Bad Mom after all.
