Adorable Butterfly Snack Bags

Butterfly Snack Bags

Raise your hand if you have a hard time getting your kid to eat their lunch or snack at school! *raising both of my hands high!* My daughter was NOT eating her snacks at school about 60% of the time. When she did eat it, she would never finish it. Even if I sent her with her favorite foods she would come home not having eaten but 2 bites. So I decided to try to make a cute snack bag that would draw her attention away from the fascinating conversations that her and her 4 year old friends would be having and actually notice the food sitting in front of her. And what do you know? It WORKED! She said all her friends loved her butterfly and she ended up eating the whole thing!

 

Here is how to make these adorable little butterfly snack bags:

Cheesy Stuffed Artichoke

I want to say this cheesy stuffed artichoke recipe is a family favorite. BUT its more like a “the kids are finally asleep and mommy and daddy want to feel like grown ups who talk and dont eat dino nuggets for dinner for a second” type of meal in our house. Which could also be rephrased as “date night.”

At the end of a long day of putting out metaphorical fires caused by the kids, as much as i want to put a ton of effort into an at home date night, I’m beat. I need something pretty hands off and quick to pull together while my husband handles bedtime. Which is why I LOVE the cheesy stuffed artichokes! They steam for 25 minutes and broil in the oven for 5 minutes. So easy, so simple, and SO DELICIOUS! Read More →
