  7. I love your lap top lunches here!! I recently purchased a few different lunch boxes for my twin 5.5 year olds to make the lunch they take to school more inviting...but it's not really working!! I mean I don't know if my kids are spoiled or what...but how do you get your kids to eat what you pack them? Mine will not eat most things cold...things that we usually have hot...like a hot dog...or even leftover chicken and stuff!

  8. mrs. fuzz - very simple. boil water based on couscous directions ( I buy in bulk, but tag has water to couscous ratio listed).
    While water is boiling, throw raisins in the pot to 'plump'. Add cinnamon and couscous, let sit. fluff with fork! YUM! Sometimes we add dried cranberries at the end too.

  9. Anonymous - When we transitioned out eating last summer, It helped to keep the kids involved. I let them pick out fruits and veggies at the store or farmers market. It also helps to get them involved in the lunch making process... fun cookie cutters help, too!

    I personally think my children are odd for some of the things they will eat cold! But look through the blog and you will find many 'not normally hot' food ideas too! Hope you find some things that work!!
