TGIF! Lunch Round-Up for 5/20 – 5/24

Hi, everyone! It’ll be a super short entry from me today. My sister’s getting married tomorrow, everyone’s in town, and there’s a ton going on! Exciting times. I did manage to make lunches this week, and only forgot to photograph Monday’s. So here goes: Tuesday, Jack brought roast beef slices on a hamburger bun, pear, … Continue reading

TGIF! Lunch Round-Up for 4/22 – 4/26

At kindergarten pickup on Wednesday, one of the dads commented that there were only seven more weeks left in the school year. I couldn’t believe it! How is it that the school year has flown by this quickly? How is it that in seven weeks (fewer for us, since we’ll be leaving town for wedding-related … Continue reading

TGIF! Lunch Round-Up for 4/8 – 4/12

Jack and Derek are on spring break this week, but I enrolled Jack in a half-day Mandarin immersion camp, so I still packed lunches for him. Monday, he brought dinosaur almond butter and jam sandwiches, clementine wedges, cantaloupe, and Goldfish in an EasyLunchbox. Tuesday, Jack didn’t go to camp because we had a big playdate … Continue reading

TGIF! Lunch Round-Up For 4/1 – 4/5

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m still in shock that a quarter of 2013 is over already. How is it April?! Didn’t we just celebrate the New Year? Anyway, here’s what the boys brought in their lunches this week: Monday was one of those “Mommy forgot to pack a lunch the day before” … Continue reading

TGIF! Lunch Round-Up for 3/25 – 3/29

Hi, everyone! Here’s what the boys had in their lunch boxes this week: Monday, Jack brought a bunny-shaped sandwich surrounded by baby carrots, strawberries, pretzels, mangoes (with a rabbit pick), and M&Ms in his PlanetBox. Tuesday, Jack brought some leftover fried rice in a Thermos, but I forgot to take a picture of it. Oops! … Continue reading

TGIF! Lunch Round-Up For 3/19 – 3/22

Hi, everyone! This will be short and sweet, because Monday was a student-free day at Jack’s school, and I forgot to take a picture for Thursday’s lunch (it was just leftover stir fry with brown rice in a Thermos, anyway; nothing exciting). So, just three lunch pictures for you all this week! Plus, my whole … Continue reading

TGIF! Lunch Round-Up for 3/11 – 3/15

Whew! What a busy week it was. Both boys were in kids’ dance shows on different nights, plus we had a tech rehearsal one night,¬†and I’m gearing up for our big St. Patrick’s Day party on Sunday, and of course there’s the usual kids-tutoring-life stuff to deal with. It’s been a whirlwind — a fun … Continue reading

TGIF! Lunch Round-Up for 2/19 – 2/22

We had another short week, thanks to President’s Day on Monday. Before I get to the lunches, I wanted to say that I know there’s been a dearth of “real food” entries on the blog lately. With the boys’ school and activities, tutoring two afternoons a week, and a steady stream of Saucy Mommy orders … Continue reading

Easy 10-Minute Meal: Creamy Tomato-Lentil Soup

I kid you guys not: Tonight, I made a healthy, delicious one-pan dinner that involved only two ingredients (OK, fine, two ingredients plus olive oil, but who doesn’t have olive oil already on hand?) and took 10 minutes. No exaggeration: I walked into the house after Jack’s hip-hop class and errands at 5:15 p.m., and … Continue reading

Scrumptious Tomato Sauce

Last week, my friend Tomomi mentioned that she was making a pasta sauce that required her to cook onions and garlic for a whole hour, then add whole tomatoes and simmer for another hour. Now, I’m usually all about saving time when it comes to making dinner, but something about the idea of cooking just … Continue reading
