Muffin Tin Monday, Take Me Out To The Ball Game

My first lunch of the season, I was definitely out of practice!  Because of our new Homeschooling schedule I'll be able to make lunch at home on Mondays and for the first time ever they will be served in Muffin Tins.  I have been so envious of those blogging Mama's that have been making these darling little lunches and now I am going to attempt to join them.

Here's the first one, it's loosely based on a Ball Game meal (loosely because LiLi has a severe peanut allergy so cracker jacks are out).

Both girls got a turkey dog, with their choice of dipping sauce, cucumber slices, sunflower seeds, watermelon and popcorn.  We had fruit smoothies too, and they were so yummy!  These super easy lunches provided at least 3 servings of fruits and veggies (the smoothie had bananas and strawberries)...and the popcorn is a great way to get some fiber into your kids!

Today's lunch showed me two things; first, I really need to stock up the kitchen and pantry with lunch items.  And second, I gotta organize the lunch making supplies, I've bought a lot of cool things this summer and have just tossed everything into the "bento" drawer...needless to say, the bento drawer currently looks like an overfilled junk drawer.

Celebrate!!! It's Our First Drawing!

Who'd have thought that my desire to create healthy, cute and fun lunches for my littles would have led to this?  Certainly not me!  And to celebrate all this fun I think a fun Back To School Package is in order.  I've filled it with all sorts of my favorite things; silicon cups from Cost Plus World Market, reusable silverware, Wilton Cookie Cutters,  2 reusable bags from  Hustle Mama ( ), two large Perserve BPA free containers, some small little lidded cups and a salt/pepper shaker; plus an apple cookie cutter, because what Back To School kit would be complete without an apple.

I've been brainstorming all sorts of lunch ideas this summer and can't wait to start blogging, creating, posting and sharing.  And I hope this school year many of you will share what your kiddo's are loving for lunch.  Here's to more exciting milestones, lunches and giveaways!
