Junk Food Lunch Box

Ice-Cream, Smice-Cream, we all scream for crafts!

Tearing your hair out wishing that the kiddos would go back to school already? (You're not alone.) Here's a fun-filled, healthy craft idea that was published in our local paper. Kiddo had an absolute blast making and immediately devouring these little gems. He made around 35 and is planning to give the 5 that are left (he had a tummy-ache) away to his friends.
Enjoy the project and the sugar rush that accompanies it!

Creative Endeavors

I know, I know- you're wondering "Where's the holiday roast?" But this year I decided (after some convincing by kiddo) that it would be 'way cool' to do something different. So... without further ado... I unveil the one, the only, Burger Roast! I used 27 pure beef burgers and 3 boxes of Velveeta and oooh, yah... My mouth is watering.
The guests (well, really just my sister) will be so psyched to see it! (She is a burger fiend!) I am a little concerned, however, that it won't feed all 4 of us... But we have plenty of twice-baked potatoes (made with blue cheese this year), rolls, and the obligatory green vegetable (as if anyone even touches that.). I think we'll be satiated.

Long Hiatus Over?

Oh, it's that time of year again... time for rejoicing and family and overdosing on SUGAR! "It's the most wonderful time of the year..." Kiddo helped with these holiday treats... from upper left and clockwise; Toffee Ice-Cream Bars, Sugar-dough Tarts with milk chocolate icing (my addition), Thumbprints (again w/ chocolate- I find jam just isn't sweet enough), Chocolate Death Ice-Cream Bars (to die for- literally), and Peppermint Mouthfuls-o-Butterfat! Kiddo and I, of course, tasted as we made and I must say I'm feeling a little Ug. But what's a little illness in exchange for such fabulous holiday memories?

By the way, I used nothing but the best and purest ingredients for these puppies- butter from that happy cow farm, real ice-cream, etc. The Weston-Price Foundation says that's the only way to go. None of that oil filled margarine or soy crap- Did you know they now think that soy causes homosexuality?!?! Look it up, but probably not in a book... look it up in your gut. Makes sense there, I'd say. :)

Glad to be back... more to come.

Making Food Fun (or come on, kiddo, just one more bite!)

You know how sometimes your child just will not eat the nutritious food you put in front of them? Well, here's what I tried this week, and I must say it worked like a charm! If it weren't for the fact that I made 'hair' out of Cheetos, 'ears' out of chicken McNuggets, and a 'nose' out of sausage (oh, and don't forget that cottage cheese mouth) Kiddo wouldn't have had anything to eat other than a banana yesterday. (I think he's on some weird health kick- they've been spouting out the glory of fruit at school again, as if fruit's gonna make him grow big and strong. It's just full of sugar.) He ate almost this whole plate- left the cucumbers (surprise, surprise) and carrots, but ate everything else, including the two slices of mozzarella cheese under the eyes. Yeah, calcium!!!! Yeah, protein!!!! Can't get that from no banana.

Date Night...

I know this isn't really Kiddo's lunch, but I just had to show the exquisite meal my hubby had when we were in NY a couple of weeks ago. This is no ordinary steak, but a gorgonzola steak... mmmmmmm. Nothing says "I love you" quite like gorgonzola steak breath. Need I even tell you where this date went? (although, I'm getting a little tired of hubby needing Viagra- christ, he's not even 40 yet!)

Pizza Porn...

I know, I know- doesn't it just make your mouth water? It was kiddo's idea and I thought, "why stifle his creativity?". So we made the best pizza ever this afternoon for lunch. And need I add... those are McDonald's french fries, of course! Mmm, mmm, good. (Unlike Campbell's soup, which lately just seems too laden with mushy vegetables. Gimme Progresso anyday.)

Back by Popular Demand...

I can't tell you how excited we were to see this sign at our local McD's! Kiddo was just beside himself (although I think we should have at least gotten a Happy Meal out of it, not just a measly french fry order) and couldn't wait to visit and claim his prize. We went for dinner last night (4th night this week!) and he got the royal treatment with a paper crown and a large order of fries. Thanks McDonalds! Our family sure loves your food! (Burp.)

And to my fans- I apologize for the lack of posts lately. I don't know why, but I've been catching every cold bug that comes along. Can't seem to shake it, either. Can't for the life of me figure out why- off to cook dinner now. Hamburger Helper, here I come.

Junkfoodlunchbox saying so long...

Well, it seems my attempt at humor (which was originally intended to be for family and friends ONLY- thanks alot seester!) has caused quite a stir. And although most of the comments I received were positive (and some downright flattering- Stephen Colbert?!?!?! My hero?!?!?!? Wow.) I was getting a little weirded out by the negative ones, so I've made the decision to delete this blog. I admit my sense of humor is not for everyone, especially those that don't know me personally. My apologies to those that were offended. Now you can focus your time elsewhere.... like on flaming other bloggers.
