Perdue makes dinner AND Lunch a Little More Fun Review & Contest)

Perdue chicken and a thermos can do a lot for a boring lunch

Here is how Perdue brought a little more joy into my life...especially around dinner time.

I hate cooking dinner.

There, I said it.

Especially during the summer when it stays light so long and the dinner whiny hunger creeps up on you without warning. Suddenly it's 6:00 and I've done nothing to prepare a meal! Sure, I have a few go-to easy dinners but they get boring. Enter Perdue Whole Grain Crispy Chicken Strips. Throw some frozen veggies in the microwave and cut up some fresh fruit and I've got a great meal.

I hate packing school lunches

There, it feels good to say that too.

The monotony of making sandwich after sandwich and chips and applesauce or yogurt. If it's so boring to prepare every day, it's got to be borning to eat, right? Enter Perdue Whole Grain Chicken. I heat it up in the morning and put it in their thermos with some ketchup and voila! Smiles abound! It's easy for me to make and adds variety to the lunch routine.

Perdue and Crayola have teamed up to celebrate fun family dinners as a way to encourage families to take the time to sit and enjoy this important meal together.

Also, it's damn good chicken. All opinions are my own and no one reviewed or approved this post prior to publishing.

Review: GoGo SqueeZ - making school lunches got a little easier.

 

I dread the start of school and being a slave to school lunches. I resist buying the 'snack' size foods because they usually have too much sugar, salt, or preservatives and things that I can't pronounce

Recently I had the opportuniyt to try GoGo squeeZ squeezable, resealable, 100% fruit & applesauce snack.

Here's what I like about the GoGo SqueeZ snacks:

no spoon needed

I resist using plastic utensils for school lunches as much as possible because I'm a greenie in some ways and so for applesauce I give the Twofer real spoons that sometimes come home but always leave the inside of their lunchbox sticky. I mean, can't they lick it off?

 healthy and all-natural

Here's the list of ingredients for the apple-strawberry flavor: apple, strawberry, banana, apple juice concentrate, blackcurrant

No added sugar, or malthedexah;adjf;ksdhjf or hiuoieruwnfsd <-- stuff I can't pronounce.

neat, portable, non-perishable

That means it can sit on my pantry and I can grab one whenever i need it! No need for cooler thingies taking up room in the lunch box, and a perfect snack for the 'snack time' they have in their classroom (yes, our school does this for the younger kids and grades that eat later).

For more information on GoGo Sqeez products including where to buy you can visit their website, their blog, follow them on Twitter, and find them on Facebook.

What products help you make better school lunches?
