A Kitty Cat Bento Lunch

One of the boy's good friends asked him what other cute things I could make for lunch.

He told her pretty much anything and asked her what her favorite animal was.  Since it's cats, he asked me what we could do with a cat theme to show her.

Snack Bento for Boy Scouts

The boy had another merit badge day for Boy Scouts, from 9am till about 1pm or so on a Saturday morning.  They suggested the boys bring food with them, which I assume is quite necessary for early teen boys.  However, we had plans afterwards, so I wanted to stave off hunger without packing the fridge

Weekend Pancake Fun with Krusteaz

After a long week, we needed a break.  And nothing says "break" like sleeping late on a Saturday morning, then making pancakes.

We're excited to be partnering with Krusteaz for National Breakfast Month to share their new Krusteaz Protein Pancake mix, along with our favorite cute pancake toppers. Why can't weekend breakfasts be extra fun?

A High School Salad Bento Lunch

The girl prefers to take lunch with her, wherever she goes. She's not picky, but she prefers healthier options, and she is a bit particular about meat.

I prefer sending food simply because I know she is at least eating well and will eat the food that is with her.  This has led to salads as her go-to lunch.

Baked Tortilla Egg Cups

The boy and I are excited to once again be partnering with Nellie's Free Range Eggs, and this time, Cabot Creamery Co-operative has joined in to share their awesome cheese offerings.

Our challenge?  To create a mouth-watering brunch recipe to share, featuring Nellie's Free Range Eggs and Cabot cheese.  Not only did we succeed, we came up with an idea that is perfect for quick breakfasts as well and, per Ben, perfect for his lunchbox too.

Back to School Bento Lunch Time

Back-to-school is upon us!

We went through all our lunch stuff right before the move back to Colorado and kept things that are more in line with the amount of food that the kids now eat.  We still kept a lot of fun stuff because we're all about making lunch fun.  And, as the lunch below shows, we love all things puppy related.

How to Make a Penguin Sandwich

We made these penguin sandwiches for a project a few months ago.  I thought they were really cute, and easy enough to warrant their own tutorial!

Get the right kind of bread when you're shopping this weekend and you can surprise your kids with a penguin sandwich for lunch on Monday.  You can even pass them off as owls or other birds too.
