Back to Lunching Giveaway!


Hi friends, I hope that you forgive me that I haven’t posted in a long time. I’ve been buried with work and family life. It’s wonderful to be busy. Exciting stuff is coming my way and I will be sharing that over the next year!

You know what has really bummed me out recently? Packing Charlie’s lunch. He’s now in first grade. It’s not pretty. I used to send a wonderful variety of stuff when he was in daycare, had access to a microwave, and he was my only child, but now I’m time-strapped beyond belief with the two of them. But the biggest thing is that Charlie is totally sick and tired of what I pack. I try to be creative and it can be successful, but sometimes if I get too creative Charlie won’t eat it. It’s depressing because he doesn’t want the same old stuff and he doesn’t always like creative new stuff, too. That’s why we need school lunch reform — so that everyone can just buy at school and forget the hassle of lunch packing…

To cheer myself up, I’d like to throw a giveaway! I want to send you a bunch of lunch packing stuff as well as ten books for you to use and to increase your creativity in the kitchen and in life. Here’s what’s included:


From the first picture:

  • Two Goodbyn Lunch Bento Boxes (with stickers to use to decorate)
  • Two EZ Freeze Ice Packs
  • A Bamboo Spoon


From the second picture (an eclectic collection of books):

  1. Gardening journal
  2. Jump Start Health
  3. Will Write for Food
  4. Family Dinners
  5. Mom 100 Cookbook
  6. Backyard Harvest
  7. Week-by-Week Vegetable Gardener’s Handbook
  8. The Math Chef
  9. 365: No Repeats
  10. Upcycling

Check out the photos and book line-up and enter below (starting at midnight)! I will be choosing a name on Sunday October 4th! Good luck!

    I feel your pain, I packed lunches ALL through High School, and now when I visit them at their colleges, they want me to bring home made meals for the microwave. It doesn’t end 🙂

    What a great and random collection of books. I was just thinking I needed a garden journal, I was going to make one. I should have realized that someone already publishes some.

    I am right there with you. My son is gluten-free and very picky so it is hard keeping it interesting. My big revelation so far this year was that I could do half a bagel with PB&J a couple times a week instead of bread every single day, without breaking the bank any worse than the bread already does 🙂 Anything to change it up! My biggest challenge right now is convincing him to eat the sandwich first, the fruit or yogurt second, and the treat last! He always seems to “run out of time” with the healthy stuff!

    Lunches are a constant struggle for me. My son is really picky, which makes figuring out lunches difficult. My goal is to have ten different lunches that my kids like, and just put them on a two week rotation. Right now I have five that both kids like. My achievement this school year is figuring out that they both like salad for lunch. Yay!

    Nice lunch making help.

    What a great prize package! I’m sure my kids would appreciate a little more variety in their lunches. I seem to get stuck in a rut with what I pack.
