Daddy's turn!

Thursday, June 6, 2013

"Don't cha wish your girlfriend(wife) packed lunch like me?"

Mommy's and Daddy's Lunch:  
Grilled pork chops over green beans
grilled red potatoes and grapes

I don't really care if my husband gets teased about his lunches. I don't think he does either. He rarely eats lunches, so when he was participating in the Crossfit Open last March, he needed to maintain a healthier eating routine, I was a little more giddier than he was to pack his lunches too. I didn't take many pictures of them, since he didn't care much for presentation, but with EasyLunchBoxes, it was easy to arrange the food in different compartments.

Last weekend, he participated in a mud/foam run in Chicago with the some of the athletes at our Crossfit box. It was a 2.5 hour bus ride each way, so he needed to pack lunch and a post-race dinner.  Of course I jumped on that opportunity to pack his lunches too. :)

Mud Run Munchies
Juices for carbs, water, protein shake, bananas
ELB#1: eggs, veggies w/almond butter, with a handful of almonds
almond crackers, sausages, and cheese; strawberries and pineapples
ELB#2: chicken salad, eggs, and broccoli slaw
sausages, and cheese; strawberries and pineapples
and of course adult beverages to enjoy on the bus ride back after the race.

Rainbow Birthday Party!

Wednesday, June 5, 2013

A few weeks ago, my baby girl turned 6 eyars old!

She wanted a rainbow themed party. 

Thanks to inspiration overload from Pinterest, I pulled off a rainbow party with only having a couple days of execution. It was a stressful week due to personal reasons, so I didn't get to DIY party stuff like I usually do. I'd like to thank my friend Mindy for letting me borrow the table cloth and the cake tutu she made for her daughter's Unicorn party in April.

Miss C's Rainbow Birthday Lunch:
(aka, leftovers from  her birthday party)
Fruit - blueberries, kiwi, pineapple, & strawberry
cheese and crackers, organic fruit snacks
cauliflower, peppers, carrots and cucumbers
(not pictured: yogurt ranch for dipping)
