Lunches for today were yummy! Chicken and bacon put on skewers with some kecap manis soy sauce spread over them and cooked in the oven, homemade bliss balls, carrot, capsicum, popcorn, chopped up orange and some cheese sliced with Vegemite between them. Yum!
Hi there! Thank you for visiting my brand new, never used before blog! This is where I will be posting ideas, links, photos, recipes and many other fun things that help make packing lunch boxes for kids (or anyone really) easier, organized and more enjoyable.
First of all I would like to introduce myself. My name is Anita and I am a stay at home mum (and love it!). I have a love of food, cooking, being creative and most of all I love helping others. I have previously worked casual in retail as well and only recently became a full time stay at home mum again. Before I became a mother I did an apprenticeship in Picture Framing and completed it and also worked in a few other retail and hospitality positions over the years. Being a mum is definitely the best job in the world- being paid in love, hugs and kisses!
Ok- back to telling you more about me! I have a loving, supportive and wonderful partner- Chewy (his real name is Christopher and I don’t normally use that) who is my rock. He is always there for me through thick and thin and we are best friends. We have two beautiful children together who are nearly 5 and 3. Their names are miss Marlee and mister Darcy. They have shown us really what life is all about and what happiness and love is. We have our good and bad days like anyone else and none of us are perfect, and we are perfect just the way we are! Life is definitely more fun since having them that’s for sure!
Now I should tell you how this blog has come about. As you know I love all things food, cooking and helping others etc. Well, on my Facebook profile I was posting lots of food I cooked for our family and packed for my kids lunches etc. Then my friends Taryn and Charlie were talking together one day and suggested to me I should start a Facebook page all about lunchbox ideas for kids. Well I took that idea and ran with it as I thought that it was a great idea (and I don’t have to flood my friends and families news feeds with all my food photos)! So here I am now creating a blog where people can come and check out some ideas and get help with packing their lunch boxes. This is not just for mums or dads- it’s for anyone really. Grandmas who want ideas for their grandchildren- babysitters or day cares for snack and meal ideas, workers who want inspiration on what to pack for work each day and anyone who eats really!
So there you have it- a little about me and how this all came about. I hope you like this blog and share it with your friends and get something from it. Feel free to drop me a line anytime if you want help with anything as I’m more than happy to help.
Here is our family photo we had taken about a year ago, I will update it again when we get another good one!
