This is a Fancy CornDog

I had big plans for a very fancy lunch only to discover I was out of cheese! Curses! But since I promised the Kidlet a fancy lunch I couldn't simply give up. Something had to be done. So I stuck a hat on a corndog. It happens.

Main Compartment: Morningstar Farms Veggie CornDog, grapes, strawberries, and two Hail Merry Macaroons - one chocolate and one salted caramel. These are the most amazingly delicious things ever. Seriously.

Larger Side Compartment: Mini Dipper full of ketchup and mustard

Smaller Side Compartment: Carrots and ranch dip

Happy Sandwich Man

This was a spur of the moment lunch. Kidlet wanted a veggie sub and I was happy to oblige. As I was putting it together I decided it needed a face....then arms....and of course a tiny hat! :)

Happy sandwich man is a veggie sub with lettuce, tomato, cheese, carrots, and cucumber. His face and arms are cheese. On the side there is a mini dipper of Italian dressing, mandarin oranges, grapes, and strawberries.

Chobani Champions Yogurt Review and Giveaway!

Kidlet eats a lot of Greek yogurt. Being a vegetarian I like the extra punch of protein it gives him. And it's delicious :) Kidlet wasn't a big Chobani fan so I was skeptical of the Champions yogurt but we gave it a try and I am so glad we did. Kidlet LOVES the Champions yogurts! His favorites were the Chocolate Chunk and the Very Berry. I liked the Orange Vanilla and the Honey Nana! Champions are a thinner Greek yogurt which kids seem to really like. You can check out lunches I've made using Chobani Champions HERE.

Kidlet even made a game up with his Chobani Champions! He tried stacking them in lots of different ways! This should definitely be a new sport ;) He didn't like it when I said it was time to put them away before they went bad :P

Want to try some delicious Champions of your own! The awesome people at Chobani are letting me give 2 readers (that's YOU!) each 6 packs of delicious yogurt! What could be better?

Are you a fan of delicious flavor?

That is the question you must ask yourself! Kidlet and I are working our way through episodes of Psych and loving it! So this lunch is dedicated to Shawn Spencer. And pineapple.

Kidlet has a Boca Chik'n patty sandwich with cheese letter and pretzels in the main compartment. On the side are carrots, cucumber, dip, strawberries, blueberries, and pineapple. On the side is a Horizon milk box.

Today Kidlet carried his lunch to school in his brand new ThriftTeeGear bag! He outgrew his beloved Hedgehog shirt so we sent it over to have it turned in to this AMAZING lunch bag!! We are both so in love with it! Look out for a review and giveaway coming soon ;)
