TGIF! Lunch and Snack Round-Up for 10/22-10/26

Another busy, busy week! Here’s what I made for lunches and snacks this week: Monday’s snack was Halloween pretzels and apple slices: Lunch, packed in an EasyLunchbox, was some leftover slow cooker ribs from the night before, Ritz crackers, steamed broccoli, grapes, tangerine wedges and a Babybel cheese (I used a mini acorn cookie cutter … Continue reading

TGIF! Lunch and Snack Round-Up for 10/15-10/19

I’m afraid many of this week’s lunches look a bit … uninspired and repetitive. With all the stuff I’m doing at Jack’s school (co-room mom, weekly volunteer morning in the classroom, art workshop docent, music workshop volunteer), tutoring clients and everything that needs to get done at home, I’m feeling a tiny bit overloaded! It’s … Continue reading

Slow Cooker Whole Roast Chicken

I’m sure this is common knowledge, but up until late last week, I had no idea that you could cook a whole chicken in the crock pot. It makes complete sense — if you can cook a whole roast, why not a chicken? — but somehow it never occurred to me that you could put … Continue reading

A couple of days ago, my friend Jennell (of Oreo monkey muffins fame) sent me the link for these Weelicious mummy dogs. She said she thought I’d like them, and she was totally right. These are easy, fun and cute — what’s not to love? I didn’t follow the original recipe exactly, but it’s pretty … Continue reading

Yet another week has flown by! Here’s what was in the boys’ snack and lunch bags this week. Jack didn’t have school on Monday, but Derek’s preschool was in session. I took advantage of the rare alone time with Jack to take him to the aquarium and out to lunch, and sent Derek to preschool … Continue reading

Light and Fluffy Spinach Quiche

I’ve been meaning to write about this recipe for a long time, but I have such a backlog of potential blog entries that it’s taken me until now, the fourth time making this quiche, to do it! A while back, my friend Shelly posted a delicious-looking spinach and feta quiche recipe. She had found the … Continue reading

TGIF! Lunch and Snack Round-Up for 10/1-10/5

Now that it’s October, I can use my Halloween- and autumn-themed cookie cutters with impunity! Wow, that sounded really dorky, but since it doesn’t look or feel like fall (temps are still unbearably high), I have to get my fill of the season elsewhere, and lunch-making is as good a place as any. Here’s what … Continue reading
