  1. I let my kids come in the kitchen to cook with me often and I have started to show my son what to do it gives us a chance to talk and for me to show him some stuff

  2. I didn’t know you can make uncrustables at home. I’m always peeling off the crust of my daughter’s sandwiches because they hate it! I’m glad there is another option!

  3. You made such great things, I love the sandwiches that you can freeze. My daughter isn’t in school yet but I’ll have to remember these ideas.

  4. That is great to make things ahead and freeze them. I am a big fan of packing everything the night before too. Saves so much time as I am not a morning person.

  5. Thank you for these lunch ideas! Our kiddos aren’t in school yet but we always try to do easy lunches so I’m not stuck in the kitchen when home alone with a 3 year old and 3 month old. I’m going to make up my own batch of uncrustables!

  6. Homemade Uncrustables?! MUST… MAKE… My daughter and I love those things. I could make a dozen and freeze them for the whole week. This would save so much time!

  7. My daughter hates eating the crust, so I love your easy way to make uncrustable sandwiches, as well as the slow cooker chex mix–love using my slow cooker.

  8. I saw your apple pies on Facebook the other day. Those are so adorable, and you are such a great mom for going the extra mile to send them a healthy lunch.

  9. I LOVE the idea that you made homemade uncrustables – how creative! You have totally inspired me to get more creative in the kitchen for the kids lunches!

  10. What a good idea to make the sandwiches and freeze them. I make lunch for everyone, but I get up so early (we’re talking dumb-early here),it’s not taking time from the kids. I do love the idea of planning ahead like this though, and would do it in a heartbeat!

  11. Having my daughter help prepare snacks helps her get involved. We spend time making things she likes which ensures that she will eat them .

  12. My son loves to help me with dinner when I make certain things. I try to remember that letting them get hands on is ensuring they will be that way in their future.

  13. I didn’t know it was so easy to make those little sandwiches at home! I will give it a try. These look like great ways to save time in the kitchen.

  14. I got to make those pumpkin chocolate chip muffins for my MOPS group sometimes. I’m totally diggin’ your uncrustables too. I’d much rather make something homemade for my son rather than it being processed.

  15. Sorry that your Chex Mix recipe didn’t turn out well. I have never heard of it being made in the crockpot. Maybe it will be better when you try out the other recipe or perhaps you could tweak the one you already used.
