It's Raining Cats and Dogs!!

It's a rainy fall morning here in Michigan. And what better way to brighten the day then with a cute cat and dog lunch.
I finally talked my daughter into a real sandwich and not a wrap! The sandwich is a turkey and provolone cat. I used the cheese scraps for a nose and whiskers and of course chocolate chips for eyes. I love using the silicone muffin cups in lunches because they add color and separate foods your kids might not want mixed together. These cups  look like flowers to me! A couple little dog and cat picks and your done! So fast, so easy and cute!!

I used our Goodbyn Bynto for this lunch. You still have time to win one of your own here!!

Lunch Made Easy: A MOMables Review and Giveaway!!

Have you ever found yourself standing in your kitchen wishing the lunch fairy would come and help you make lunches? I know I have!! Well you don't have to wish anymore, Momables is here to help!

MOMables is a service that provides you with a healthy and fresh school lunch menu that you can whip out in about 10 minutes! They provide shopping lists, recipes with easy to follow instructions and great colorful photos to give you ideas for packing it in your child's lunchbox. You simply log in,print it, shop and prepare! You can't get much easier than that!!

I found that  if my daughter didn't like all the recipes, it was very easy to switch out a meal with one she liked from previous menus. It's also great to not have to plan out what I should pack for the week and then make a grocery list, it was already done for me and for $6 or less a month, it's a great deal too!

And make sure you check out the MOMables Blog as well. There you will find lots of great recipes and tips and tricks! You do not need to be a subscriber to check it out so make sure you go take look!

One of you lucky readers will win a 3 month subscription courtesy of  MOMables. Just follow the directions below to win!! Good Luck! Giveaway Ends Sept 21st at Midnight EST

It's a Wrap! Goodbyn Eco System review and Bynto giveaway!!

Happy Fall!! Hope everyone's back to school is going smoothly! Our first day was rocky but we have been getting back into the swing of things. My daughter however has proclaimed that she will only eat wraps and no more sandwiches :( I'm sure it's just a phase but she broke her lunch packing mom's heart,lol!

I have talked about the Goodbyn Bynto before and here is our new one. We both love the Bynto and really like that the new one also has a tinted lid so you can see what's in your box, which adds to the cute and fun factor!! For the wrap my daughter chose baby spinach,provolone and turkey. I found the cute little hawaiian flower picks at Wal-Mart by the party favors. In the middle you will see one of the new Goodbyn Dippers from their new Eco System line. I like that it works in the Bynto as well as the mix and match sets. Goodbyn also now has really cute insulated lunch totes here is the one my daughter got:
Isn't it so adorable? It's very roomy and has a pocket inside to hold an ice pack as well as outside pockets for napkins, spoons,etc.. It works with the Bynto as well as the mix and match sets and has plenty of room inside for a drink as well. They have lots of cute designs.

Here are 2 more containers from the Eco System. The snack container, which has 2 small compartments and small meal container which has 2 larger compartments. As you can see you I could fit a wrap and a small apple strudel in the small meal container. In the snack container I have several slices of cucumbers and a whip yogurt. The containers are not leak proof, except for the dipper, but the whip yogurt is light and whippy so we had no problems with it upright on the bottom on the bag. There is also a salad/sandwich container that is not pictured here. The best part is you can buy them as a whole mix and match set. I did not have any trouble getting the lids on and off . However my daughter who is 8, said the snack container lid was tricky for her to put back on. She had no troubles with any of the other containers, so it might be something to consider if using for very young children. I always suggest practicing with your child before they take it to school so they won't have to worry about it during the busy lunch time.

The Goodbyn Lunchbox products are also top-shelf dishwasher safe, even with the stickers on, which is helpful for us busy moms. They are also recyclable which is good for the Earth,but who could part with their Goodbyn's?? I know I don't want to!

Now for the fun stuff!! Thanks to the great folks at Goodbyn, I have 2 pink Bynto's to giveaway!!! Yes, that's right 2 of you can win! Giveaway is open to US Residents only and ends at Midnight (EST) on Monday Sept. 24th Good Luck!!
