Week four was quite the exciting one! We had LOTS of cool, different goodies for the kids to feast on this week. Take a look at our menu this week:
Lots of tasty, tasty things there, eh?
After having tortilla soup for dinner on a cold, rainy Sunday, warm baked cheeseburger wraps were easy enough to prepare alongside the soup for Monday’s lunch. The kids.loved.these.so.much. (Recipe soon!)
(Sorry, but I did not get a picture of my baked penne. I don’t know what happened. Mommy brain, I guess? Sad face.)
After making the meat monster that is Pioneer Woman’s meatloaf, we had pleeeenty left over for their sandwiches for the next day. Slap some meatloaf lovin’ on a hot dog roll, paired with my (almost) famous mashed potatoes and call ‘er done!
The kids were MORE THAN THRILLED to take leftover Chicken Nugget Bowls to lunch. They’re always a huge favorite, and they kept well in their lunchbags until lunch, too.
Speaking of lunchbags, check out their fancy schmancy new ones! I used a gift card I had from Land’s End to get these colorful beauties that fit their lunch containers! Also, EasyLunchboxes sent me one of their coller bags for my older son, he needs a big lunchbox for his big, football-playin’ appetite.
Back to the lunches, the older kids BUGGED OUT about their enchiladas and corn bread.
Corn bread. Cornbreadcornbreadcornbread. Hoooly cow.
Alright, listen to me for a sec, okay? I swear to you, when I share this recipe for corn bread, you will want to bookmark and it make it over and over and never stop. I swear. IT IS THE BESTEST CORN BREAD OF ALL THE CORN BREADS IN ALL OF CORN BREAD HISTORY. Hands down, no competition. The end. I win at LIFE.
And with that magical corn bread recipe, I created mini corn dog muffins for the younger kids’ lunches, so they could partake in the awesomeness. Which, of course, caused the sad eyes in my older ones. “B-b-b-but mom? Don’t we get any?” Dangit.
Okay. Here, kids. I don’t blame you. I did make the most magicalest corn bread ever.
And I promise, my corn bread recipe is worth it.
How was your kids’ lunches this week? Do anything different?
EasyLunchBoxes sent me the cooler bag for review, but my awesome lunches that I put in the cooler bag are my own.
