I like to cook.
I try to feed my kids healthy and nutritious meals.
Sometimes I even attempt to make those meals look fun--happy faces made out of veggies on their plates, flowers, etc.
You know those little things that put a smile on their faces...or make the older ones groan that their mom has a weird sense of humor (but I know they love it anyway!)
For years I've been saying I should cut their sandwiches into shapes with cookie cutters...uh, that's what I've been saying...it hasn't happened yet.
I always seem to find lunch times rushed and figure the kids are lucky to get a sandwich slapped together at the last possible minute before we have to rush out the door once again.
So I shake my head and wonder how Ai over at Tulips and Butter does it:
Seriously adorable lunches!!
On the flip side she always wonders how I have time to craft/sew/garden/blog with 4 kids running underfoot!
Guess we all wonder "how she does it" at some point about our friends, neighbours and random strangers who seem to have it all together.
OK--I've already admitted that lunches in my house are not so creative! BUT I did figure out a way to keep the kids burritos warm....
The burrito sock! Made from scraps of polar fleece, a tube is sewn with one end closed and one end open.
Warm and wrap the burrito in foil, place in sock, fold ends inside and kids have a warm wrap when school lunch time rolls around.
I'm wondering if this would work around thermoses as well--my older kids say that the thermos doesn't keep their soups/pastas/etc. warm enough.
If I get around to trying it I'll let you all know!
