Groundhog's Day Lunch

As with most of the midwest area, our weather this week has been crazy. It went from 60°F on Tuesday with rain, thunderstorms, hail, and flooding to snowing last night and high tempreture of 16°F and snow tomorrow. So I'm hoping for a cloudy day on Saturday in Pennsylvania, so Mr. Punxsutawney Phil Groundhog won't get scared of his shadow and we can have a shorter winter this year? Miss C and I are definitely looking forward to spring! Since Groundhog Day is on a Saturday, and Miss C planned to eat school lunch tomorrow,  we are celebrating GHD a couple days early. Mr. Groundhog sandwich pretzels with strawberries and blackberries packed in an  EasyLunchBox

Quick and Easy Peanut Butter Lunches

I consider myself and my daughter very lucky that she does not have any nut allergies.  So we can celebrate National Peanut Butter Day today!  Peanut Butter and Jelly Dino Sandwich with applesauce, grapes, celery and ranch Celery with Peanut Butter pineapple, hardboiled egg, chips and salsa Simple PBJ, clementine, raisins and cookies. This was a last minute "I change my mind, I don't want school lunch today!"  I literally had less than 2 minutes to find something in the pantry for food to pack.

sprinkles and bright colors make my world go round

This lunch took less than 5 minutes.  No cutesy pics or fun shapes... well, except for the sprinkles. Apple butter-filled sandwich pocket, chips yogurt with sprinkles, honey dew melon and grapes in an EasyLunchBox .  Check out their NEW LID COLORS !  My very girly daughter loves them and gives a thumbs up!

Dreaming of Spring

Happy New Year!  After 2-week long winter break from school, Miss C headed back to class yesterday. I took a week off work during Christmas week and we loved the lazy-lounge-around days, with late bedtimes and sleeping in. It was awesome. But this week, it's back to reality. Full week of work for me and Daddy, and back to school for Miss C.   Is it spring yet? :) Flower Peanut Butter Jelly Sandwiches, oranges and almond cookies packed in an EasyLunchBox .
