Junk Food Lunch Box

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.
