There is something really scary going on in my house. I’m in a Pinterest frenzy! I’ve been cooking up a storm and organizing stuff and making things…very out of character for me. I did not nest like this when I was pregnant, but somehow taking care of a sick Little Dude all week really brought it out in me. It was a busy week juggling caring for a sick baby, my crazy workload, and this crazy compulsion to make things. The arrival of our new PlanetBox only fueled that fire and I had fun making new foods in a new layout!
Wednesday’s PlanetBox had a zucchini tot with a small dipper of ketchup, mango and kiwi, blueberries, fried rice, and a Chobani Champions yogurt tube.
Thursday’s lunch was a cheese-filled crescent roll, mango & kiwi, granola, Greek yogurt with berries mixed in, veggie kabobs on heart picks, and a chocolate quarter.
Today’s lunch was edamame, mango, kiwi, and blueberries, trail mix, a Chobani Champions tube, and a pasta salad made with tomato, red bell pepper, and white beans.
I am finding myself more and more jealous of Girlie’s lunches (and Nate’s too when I pack them). I kind of want to start making my own lunch in advance instead of trying to rustle something up between conference calls. Good idea, right?
Here is a list of crazy stuff I made from Pinterest this week:
Baked Brie (Served with Apples & Grapes)
On top of all of that, I also cooked a giant pot of soup to eat all week and baked some delicious cinnamon raisin bread in my bread machine.
I also had Girlie help me with a Pinterest craft of DIY Air Freshener! She was actually very handy with a hammer and nail!
So that about catches me up on my week. This is the first day this week that everyone is at school or work and nobody got sent home sick from either. Well, it is only 4pm, so I may be pushing my luck by stating that!
Are you as pinterest crazed as I am? If not, what do you do when you’re cooped up at home with a sick kid?
