Meal Planning For Dummies

I am not sure if they actually have one of these books for meal planning. I know I have seen those “For Dummies” on a whole slew of subjects. I have even purchased some myself.  In my home I usually go by what is on sale and plan some meals around that. Sometimes it is […]

Pumpkin Bento 2

The next in my spirited bentos this week is my Pumpkin Bento 2. I used that minute sticky rice that I love now, because you can make cute rice balls in a minute (not talking about decorating just cooking). See my review on this item under bento I did recently, http://mommasays.net/1244/piggy-love-bento  I used the minute […]

Picky Eater Is Now Her Own Chef

My hubby and I like to go out to eat at the local Soup and Salad buffet.  I don’t know why but if you go with a coupon or a kids eat free night your very much ahead of the game. Because the price to eat VS buying all those veggies seem to work to […]

Homemade Cereal Breakfast Bar Gluten Free Too!

My little one is on a gluten free diet . We believe she is better gluten free, as we think she might have a “intolerance”. We think this due to the fact if she eats say spaghetti and meatballs (both containing gluten from the wheat) and garlic bread, she gets tummy pains. We notice this at […]

Hello Kitty Bento Lunch

So with no inspiration this morning I went to Hello Kitty to rescue my bento for kiddo’s lunch. Making “girly” food is so easy with Hello Kitty, because all you need is her cute face and a few flowers and picks. That makes it quick and easy. Today’s Hello Kitty Bento Lunch started with the […]
