Mad Hatter Marshmallow Treats

One of my favorite movies as a kid was the original Disney animated Alice in Wonderland.  I still love it as an adult and was so excited with the chance to see the new Alice Through the Looking Glass, as a sneak preview with my kids on Monday.  Of course, a new movie calls for something fun for snacks, so we made Mad Hatter Marshmallow Treats.

Flower Power Bento Lunch

We took a quick family getaway to Great Wolf Lodge last week, which meant we were lunch free for a few days!  We've been once before and the kids loved it, so we've been wanting to go back.

But alas, vacation is over and a new week means new lunches!

Mickey Mouse Bento

I almost named this post M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E bento, but there's some theory about simple post names and what people search for.  But now I'm *singing* the Mickey Mouse song, thanks to my initial idea.

We actually have a good number of Mickey themed cookie cutters that I purchased at Disney, but Mickey is a pretty simple shape to recreate--one larger and two smaller circles.

25+ Amazing Avengers Fun Food Ideas

In case you haven't been reading the blog in the last week, the boy and I went to see a preview of the new Captain America: Civil War movie.  This has ignited our current obsession with all things Avengers and, of course, requires Avengers food.  Who wouldn't want Captain America, Iron Man Spiderman, et al. on their plates?

We've compiled a list of some of our favorite Avengers foods from some great bloggers to try and to share--lunches, desserts, treats, and more!  Even better, we've tried to pick recipes and ideas you can recreate at home!

Quick Goodbyn Bynto Lunch

Things I've learned--photographing red foods in a pink box is a recipe for disaster.  It may taste great, but it is oh-so-pink!  Thankfully, the girl likes pink, although I'm cringing at the pictures.


For this lunch, my girl had ham and cheese dino sandwiches on white wheat, which could only have been made better if I had remembered to give the dinos my little tiny hairbow picks.  Next time, of course!  The middle compartment holds a Rice Krispy treat, some white cheddar cheese balls, and some baby tomatoes.  The bottom compartment is full of fresh strawberries.   Lunch is packed in a very pink Goodbyn Bynto box.

Make an Easy Captain America Shield Sandwich

Ben and I got a chance to go see Captain America: Civil War on Monday as a special blogger/media sneak preview.  We both really enjoyed it and are both on #TeamCap, although I had to say #TeamIronMan so Ben could get one of each button while we were at the preview.  In honor of the movie coming out this weekend, we made a Captain America Shield Sandwich and we are showing you how to make one too!
