Lunchbox and Schedules

Lunchbox and Schedules

I always like to make sure that my kids eat healthy and have a variety of foods so to avoid getting bored of the same packed lunches. When you have a busy schedule like our households planning comes a long way.

The first thing is to figure out a system and lists is the way to go!!! Yest at times life kinda gets in the way and your find yourself limited because you haven’t had time to go to the grocery store. That’s when you may resort to making unhealthy choices because lets face it “It’s Easy!” To avoid that I kinda have some sort of “Go To” choice that may not be completely healthy but its not junky.

My “Go To”, now remember 2 kids mean 2 different taste buds, so my quick fix that i make sure I never run out of in the house is…….. Turkey sandwich (bread for J and lettuce wrap for Zee) pickles on the side, no one likes a soggy sandwich! Cheese cubes, cucumber and apple slices. What’s your “Go To”?? Share in the comment section!

Maybe one day I’ll be fancy enough to make one of those fast videos of me prepping a lunch box  after all its also pushing my boundaries and  Making Life Memorable along the way!!


Potato Balls

Potato Balls

One of the staples I have in my freezer are potato balls. I make a whole bunch for quick dinners, lunchbox food and random no fuss play date food.

It’s a fairly easy recipe just a little time consuming.


4 Potatoes (boiled & Mashed)
1/4 cup Milk
2 Tablespoons butter
1 Egg beaten
1/2 tablespoon oregano
Salt, Pepper
Bread crumbs

Mix all ingredients together except for the breadcrumbs.

Roll the potato mixture into bite size balls and coat with breadcrumbs.

Place onto a cookie sheet and freeze for 1 hour. You can then place them in ziplock bags or freezer containers for up to 6 months.

To Cook:
Heat oven to 275 degrees Celsius

Drizzle Baking sheet & potato balls with olive oil.

Bake for 20 minutes.

(alternative cooking method is off course frying but I don’t particularly like fried food)
