Bunny {blog} Hop

Miss C is on Spring break this week. The plan was to do a bunny lunch last week on Thursday and an Easter lunch on Friday. Unfortunately, Miss C was feverish on Friday and had to stay home. She even missed the Easter Party at her class, which she was pretty bummed about.  Spring break means a break from packing C's lunches this week, but does NOT mean no packed lunches for this Mommy. Packing my lunches is helping me lose weight, so I am not going to stop just because the cutesy lunches are on a week-long hiatus! 

Bunny Lunch: Babybel cheese, marshmallow flowers, bunny-molded hardboiled egg, bunny food: crackers, carrots, green peppers and ranch
I found the inspiration on Pinterest (surprised?) from Brandy of Gluesticks. She actually had an egg hunt with her kids. I just packed mine in a square Lock/Lock and used press and seal since I had bought jumbo eggs and didn't fit in a reused egg carton.

Join us for a bunny blog hop for more Bunny or Easter inspired lunches!  Up next is…

catch up... the rest of March--mommy edition

Spinach, Artichoke, and Chicken Bake graham crackers, tomatoes and carrots  This is one of my favorite pasta casserole type dish next to Pioneer Woman's Chicken Spaghetti. I found the recipe in this wonderful blog called Iowa Girl Eats. I was googling (is that a verb now?) "chicken+spinach+artichoke+casserole" and this blog came up. I just love it when I am looking for one thing and find something more! I love reading her past post about workouts and healthy recipes! 
Bratwurst, grilled asparagus and cauliflower apples and banana chips w/bittersweet chocolate chips
Tortellini, carrots and fruit cocktail  (without cherries, they usually end up in C's lunches)
salad with hardboiled egg, banana chips w/bittersweet chocolate (I love the banana/chocolate combination... it definitely satisfy my sweet craving at work!)
Udon noodles in Miso broth, salad with hardboiled egg 
Beef and mushroom panini with deviled egg salad radishes and carrots
leftover tuna casserole, carrots,…

catch up... the rest of March

I can't believe its April already.  After the St. Patrick's Day post, everything became a blur.  Here are the pictures I found in my camera and iPhone...
Tortellini with fruit, carrots and Combos.
Hawaiian Pizza, Hello Kitty hardboiled egg salad w/ranch, and banana chips. My Hello Kitty mold that I bought from Ebay finally came in (shipped internationally)! YAY!
leftover Jimmy John turkey slim (with a quick doodle face on plastic wrap) strawberries, Combos, carrots and yogurt.
Hotdog, mozzarella cheese, yogurt cucumber flowers with green peppers leaves I had tuna casserole scheduled on this day, but I was watching the local morning news and they had said it was "National Food on a Stick Day." Tuna casserole wouldn't hold up on a stick, so I quickly found items that I can stick on little skewers.
