First Week of School Lunch Round-Up

We survived the first week of school! It’s a big year for us, with D, my “baby,” in kindergarten. J, my older son, is in second grade. Second grade! Craziness. This is the first year I’ll have to consistently pack two lunches each day. We’ll see how it goes! Here’s what I made for them … Continue reading

Homemade Fruit-Filled Strawberry Bars

Hi, everyone! I’m back after a very long break from blogging. Life got so busy that blogging fell to the wayside (largely because I was either not home or preoccupied during prime daylight hours, when the lighting is most flattering for amateur food pics!), but I found myself thinking about the blog all the time, … Continue reading

TGIF! Lunch Round-Up for 11/4 – 11/8

I’ve been a lazy blogger and haven’t kept up with my lunch round-up posts in the last few weeks. Here I am, back on the wagon again, with this week’s lunches. Derek didn’t stay at school for lunch this week, so these are all for Jack. Tuesday, Jack brought some homemade cucumber and egg sushi … Continue reading

Reusable Snack Bags

A while back, my friend Chantel, the talented designer and artist behind the Etsy shop MySunshineDesigns, sent me a few of her eco-friendly reusable snack bags. She’s also a mom to a six-year-old who enjoys thinking of fun ways to present healthy food to her child, so she figured I’d enjoy some new gear for … Continue reading

TGIF! Lunch Round-Up for 10/7-10/11

And here we are again — yet another Friday! I have a whole list of recipes I’d like to try (and write about), but this October feels like it’s whizzing by. Most nights, I’ve been turning to old standbys, but once Halloween is over, I should have enough of a lull to start cooking new … Continue reading

TGIF! Lunch Round-Up for 9/30 – 10/4

It’s October, which means I can whip out my Halloween lunch-making supplies! This will be a shorter post, because Jack has suddenly started skipping snack time at morning recess in favor of playing with his friends. I still pack him a snack in hopes he’ll eat it, but it’s something very simple (a bag of … Continue reading

TGIF: Snack and Lunch Round-Up for 9/16 – 9/20

Another Friday, another lunch roundup! This week, I kept things simple because I was short on lunch prep time most days. Monday, Jack brought his PlanetBox for lunch with three turkey roll-ups, cheddar cheese cut out with an airplane cookie cutter (and decorated with food markers), Ritz crackers, apple wedges, kiwi, and chocolate-covered dried blueberries. … Continue reading

TGIF! Snack and Lunch Round-Up for 9/9 – 9/13

This was the first full week of school for the boys, and it wiped all of us out! After more than three months of not having to make lunches every weekday, this week was a sudden jolt back to reality. šŸ˜‰ That being said, I did have fun putting food together for Jack, and my … Continue reading

First Week of School!

Jack and Derek both started school this week. Derek headed to his last year of preschool on Tuesday, and Jack startsĀ first grade (wha-what?? When did my baby turn into a big kid?) today. That means I’m back in the snack- and lunch-making (and blogging) business! I usually have Derek stay at school for lunch once … Continue reading

Whole Wheat Cheddar Cheese Crackers

The other day, my friend Tiffany posted a picture of the whole wheat cheddar cheese crackers that she made for her daughter. I looked at the recipe (from the Weelicious blog) and was intrigued by the fact that there were only three ingredients — whole wheat flour, butter, and shredded cheddar. Well, OK, and salt, … Continue reading
