Pretty Pita Lunch

Very easy morning. This lunch should be called "the old stand by". Simple pita bread wedges, veggies, blueberries, baby bel and hummus.

Ice Cream for Lunch

This is a standard sandwich with strawberries and yogurt. I found tiny kid cones at the store and thought about ways I could use them in lunches. I decide to wrap a small amount of nuts and marshmallows in plastic and shape in a ball. I placed the ball inside the cone and told the boys they could spoon some yogurt into the cones at lunch and top it off with the nut/marshmallow mix. They really enjoyed this! I have many cones left so I'll have to think of another way to use these adorable little food accessories! For more creative lunch ideas visit

Macaron Success

I did make a Valentine lunch for the boys that included a lot of pink, red and lots of hearts. I didn't however post a picture because I spent Valentines day perfecting my macarons. I will say that I made 4 batches and only 1 failed which is a huge success for me. I now have an idea of what works best in my oven and have written down specific instructions for future making. So this week we enjoyed enough macarons to hold us over for quite sometime!

I ♥ Crescent Rolls

My love and affection for Trader Joe's crescent rolls continues. It is such a super staple to have on hand! I fill them with something delicious( today's ham & cheese) and roll them up and bake them. Another great alternative to the sandwich. Adding fruit, trail mix and a cookie and a 10 minute lunch is made.

Groundhog Day

This was a last minute decision to make something for Groundhog Day. I used what I had on hand to make my interpretation of a groundhog peeping out to look for his shadow. Basically it is an aebleskiver(I didn't have donut holes but I had those-go figure!), with icing eyes and a Reese's pieces nose. There are also brown Reese's ears but in this photo you can't really see them. For more great lunch ideas check outWhat's for Lunch Wednesday
