EasyLunchboxes for Camp

Since marine life camp is a week long, the boy will end up needing 5 lunches when all is said and done.  Since there's not too much else going on, I decided to rotate lunch foods and boxes, mostly to entertain myself.

Planetboxes for Camp

The boy is off to sea life camp this week in one of the awesome beaches on Puget Sound.  Since camp runs from 9am to 1:30pm, they do have lunchtime, so I was able to break out the lunches this week!

Make a Fruit-opus (Fruit Octopus)

This was totally not planned.  At all.  I was actually shooting FB Live for a different site and talking about how to make a simple orange flower.  I had an orange peeled in case, but I also peeled one on camera and something amazing happened.  It peeled perfectly, without a mess!  But when I realized *how* it peeled, I set it aside and used a different one in my live video because I had a brilliant idea!

Meet my Fruitopus or this one specifically, my Nonopus!

Summer Entertaining with Snapware {Giveaway}

What is your favorite way to celebrate summer?

We've been enjoying a very mild summer her in Washington, which has involved a lot of grilling.  And where there's grilling, there's outdoor eating, which is giving me the perfect opportunity to use my new awesome Entertain-a-Bowls and Fruit & Veggie-tainer that Snapware sent me to try out.

Shrek Movie Night Party Ideas

We've been enjoying a lot of family movie nights lately, between getting to check out cool sneak previews and receiving new movie releases for home viewing.  But the one thing we haven't done is had a full themed movie night, with snacks and dinner to go with our movie.

Fox sent us the new 15th Anniversary Edition of Shrek, along with the other Shrek movies, and lots of other goodies a few weeks ago and that became the theme of our "Let's Have a Movie Night Party" plan!

Organic and mayonnaise?

I was a little puzzled.  I always think of organic items in the product and meat departments.  I was thrilled to learn that Hellmann’s/Best Foods new Organic Mayo is now available at Kroger stores!  This yummy mayonnaise is made with cage-free eggs and organic expeller-pressed oil, plus contains no artificial flavors or preservatives.  We had to try it, so we made a trip to our local Fred Meyer store to pick some up.

Make an Easy Fish Sandwich!

We're still on our Finding Dory kick (seriously, go watch it, it's awesome)!  And we generally like marine life things anyhow.  The boy is even off to marine life camp in a few weeks, learning about the ones that inhabit Puget Sound.

We've been playing around with all sorts of fun food ideas when we came up with this fish sandwich! It's easy to make and requires no fancy schmancy tools or crazy skills, just hearts, circles, and sandwich fixings.
