Baby Birdies in a nest

Today I made G a nest out of noodles and then some eggs from meatballs.  Added some cheddar birds to complete the nest

Then he has some more cheese birds with some shredded cheese under it... (a cookie is hiding under the cup).  Carrots, strawberries and a yogurt in his lunch box.

Happy New Year - I am such a slacker

Yes here it is January 15, 2015 and I haven't added anything to this blog for a month.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday season.

I promise the rest of 2015 won't be like this.  I have still been making lunches, but just not adding them here.

So here is a round up of some of the lunches I have done in the past month.

More of this weeks lunches

Here is the past couple of days.  

Sometimes things work out the way you want and sometimes they don't.  That is what happened today:

It is supposed to be fall leaves.  Cheese maple leaves, Rice with a maple leaf colored in it (took my cutter and then colored inside of it)  The drawing on the turkey is supposed to be a tree with leaves falling.  Well all in all he ate it, and liked it... that is all the matters right


Big stinky leaf.  When G was little he used to pick up big leaves and run around calling them stinky leaves... not sure why, its not like they smelled... but anyway, I made him one.
Big leaf  - turkey and cheese sandwhich
Apple sauce, with some sprinkles in the shape of leaves to put on top.
Carrots of course


Not sure what this lunch is called... How about Mom was tired and this was easy and looked cute!

Little Tiger cheese sandwich over some bacon, mandarin oranges, M & Ms, and carrots.

A little something for me!

Ok this post has nothing to do with lunches, or even G.  It is something I was asked to try for me!

Valentia Skin Care - Even Glow Vitamin C Serum

I was given a full size bottle to try out, but my review is all me :)

This stuff is chock full of great ingredients that help fight aging
Organic Rosehip Oil, Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil, Green Tea Extract, Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, and Resistem 

I was stoked to try it out.

Here is what I really think

It smells AMAZING!  That was the first thing I thought when I used it for the first time.   It felt really good to apply to my skin, it didn't leave any sticky, or slimy feeling on my skin or even my hands.  I was able to apply makeup just after letting it dry/soak in for a few seconds.  

After a few uses, I really did notice a softer feeling to my skin.  I  just really starting to notice some aging lines and spots on my face in the past year.  I feel like since I have been using this product, I do see the lines getting smaller and the overall color of my face more even.  

I can't wait to keep using it.  I love putting it on right out of my shower!

Do you want to get some.  It sells on Amazon for $35 dollar, which in my opinion for what you get is a great deal.  It seems to me to last a long long as you don't drop it on the ground like I did and lost some, even without that I still have a lot to keep trying.

Go run and get it.  In my opinion it is a great Vitamin C anti-aging serum.

Simple Halloween Lunch

G is going as an ewok for his "main" Halloween costume.  So he asked for one in his lunch, you all know how I feel about my artistic talents, but I did my best

The Ewok is drawn on some turkey, then we have his favorite Halloween animal the bat as cheese.  Some crackers and cookie round up that side.  Mandarin oranges, and carrots, because they are both orange. 

And I have to brag here he is in his "day" costume...

Hallowe'en Hop 2014

Well even though I have been doing a Halloween theme all month, I still really wanted to be part of the Bento Bloggers and Friends Hallowe'en Hop.  I love to be a part of so much awesomeness.  I hope you all get some great inspiration from the blogs, I know I will.

So today I tried to think of something that G hasn't had yet.  And my inspiration came from looking around my own home.  At the Halloween party we went to on Sunday, I had the kids make this cute vampire hand print.

I thought well I can recreate something like that for his lunch, so Dracula was born (sort of)

Dracula is on a bed of rice, and then he is made from... head.. bread, and cheese (provolone and cheddar) for hair, eyes and mout. Boday - cheddar cheese, the collar of his costume is also cheese. The bow tie is a bit of strawberry tootsie roll, formed into a bow.  On the side of the container.. Eyeball grapes and a cookie, Carrots with turkey rolled up and Frankenstein making an appearance.  It is not exactly as my mind imagined it, but I am quite happy on how it turned out.

Have fun on the rest of the hop.
