Leftover Pancake Lunch
September makes me feel like a crazy person every year. You too? I struggle to get into the swing of things. I forgot to take pics of the lunches I packed last night, so today I'm showing you two lunches from earlier in the week that I forgot to post! My 2nd grader and my kindergartener both chose pancakes, grapes and roasted chick peas, but they like different fruits and veggies so that's where the crossover ends.
Top 8 Allergy-safe Rainbow Lunch
A rainbow lunch for this gal today. Guacamole with crackers, cukes and carrots, red peppers, blueberries, prosciutto and some grapefruit gummies.

A sharpie and a few fun toothpicks transformed this into a Halloween lunch. πŸŽƒ Today we’ve got an egg roll up with garlic naan, with yogurt, blueberries, plum, clementine, strawberries and a couple of cookies. I am ridiculously happy that it’s Friday. How about you? I’m going apple picking this weekend and cannot wait! 🍎😍🍎😍 . . . . . . . #lalalunchbox #lunchboxkickstart #feedfeedschoollunch #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #poweryourlunchbox #halloweenlunch #bentoparty
Tonight's dinner experiment was a huge hit! 😍 It's fettuccini with garlic, lemon, evoo and parsley, made creamy with the addition of egg. Here's what I used: 4 cloves garlic, 1/3 cup really fruity evoo, zest and juice of 2 lemons, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 large eggs, 2 egg yolks and 1 bunch fresh chopped parsley. πŸŒ±πŸ‹ I sautΓ©ed the chopped garlic while the pasta was cooking. After a few minutes, I added the lemon and salt. Before draining the pasta, I reserved 1/2 cup of the liquid. I added that to my pan with the garlic and lemon and then added the pasta on medium low heat. When everything was nicely combined, I added the eggs and turned the heat to low, stirring continuously. The eggs started to scramble - which I didn't want - but it happens. I removed from the heat and added the parsley. This was deliciously satisfying and I'm super happy to report that all three of my kids loved it! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» Next time I might try it with added roasted Brussels sprouts. πŸ’š Side note: Shout out to my friend @casey2cook who refers to Thursday as 'Friday Junior.' Brilliant. πŸ’₯ Hope you all had an awesome Friday Junior! πŸ˜‚ # . . . . . . . #lalalunchbox #pasta #simpledinner #healthykids #vegetarian #feedfeed #heresmyfood #KSgram
It's hard to get back into the groove after a weekend away. 😱 But it's Monday, and that means 3 packed lunches for my crew. Today my big kid is having avocado sushi, grapes, chick peas and some popcorn chips. πŸ’• It feels a lot like fall today here, and I'm making #glutenfree sweet potato banana bread. Will post the recipe soon! 😘 # . . . . . . . #lalalunchbox #lunchboxkickstart #vegan #vegetarianlunch #poweryourlunchbox #feedfeedschoollunch #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #bentoparty #yumbox
Halloween is coming! Did you hear me? πŸ‘‚πŸ»πŸ˜‚πŸ‘‚πŸ»πŸ˜‚ So, the nose came back ripped and sadly not reusable. Hoping this ear makes it back in one piece. Ravioli today, with Asian pear, green beans, berries and a chocolate quinoa cluster. And a fun riddle to keep things interesting. 😁 We're almost at the weekend! This has been a loooooong week. # . . . . . . . #lalalunchbox #lunchboxkickstart #halloweenlunch #feedfeedschoollunch #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #poweryourlunchbox @produceforkids #eattherainbow #bentoparty
I pack 3 lunches every night and I swear, it keeps me sane. 😊 I know some of you are diehard morning packers and all I can say is: more power to you! 🌟 I just cannot fathom adding one more thing to my to-do list before the day gets going. 🌞 Tomorrow, my big kid is having leftover pasta with pancetta, sage and chard, with pea shoots, plum, strawberries, popcorn chips and sunflower seed cookies. πŸ˜‹ It's been a long day. I'm looking forward to getting into sweats and unwinding. Wishing you a good night's sleep and a lovely Wednesday! 😘 # . . . . . . . #lalalunchbox #lunchboxkickstart #backtoschool #schoollunch #feedfeedschoollunch #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #bentoparty @bentoparty #poweryourlunchbox
Hello, October! ❀️ It's a bright, crisp, beautiful fall morning and we're listening to the Beatles Channel and singing at the top of our lungs. πŸ‚πŸ 😍🍐🍎πŸ₯‘πŸ“ # Wishing you a beautiful Sunday.

The beginning of a new school year is sometimes accompanied by colds and coughs. And that, my friends, is where chicken soup comes in! ❀️ I made a big old pot of it yesterday and my kindergartener is having leftovers for lunch. This morning, I poured boiling water into the thermos of this Omiebox and let that sit for a few minutes while I heated up the soup. When the soup was nice and hot, I poured out the water and poured the soup into the container. It'll be nice and warm for her at lunchtime. πŸ˜‹ It feels like fall here today and I'm really happy that it's Friday. Wishing you a lovely day! 😘 # . . . . . . . #lalalunchbox #lunchboxkickstart #feedfeedschoollunch #backtoschool #feedfeed #schoollunch #chickensoup #healthykids #poweryourlunchbox
