Mom who loves food! Now it’s preschool lunches & snacks!

I don’t know about you but it just hit me hard. August is just fast forwarding way to quick. I’m swamped with Baby Yums orders. *Smiles* as I love what I do and I enjoy knowing that there are children eating healthy choice meals. I’m also now realizing that every Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons I will have to pack a good healthy lunch for my son. Never really thought about packing up and sending him off.

So for starters I bought a great lunch box for him easy to open great to label and eco-friendly. Goodbyn Bynto Kit – Blueberry by Goodbyn Here is a photo of what I bought  & the website that I purchased it from. Nayla Natural Care  One personal thing about me is I’m a huge supporter of “Mom’s who support Mom’s” There are a bunch of great products listed on the website needless to say I’ve bought a few things.

So back to school lunches & baby food business Baby Yums. I plan my day around orders that I receive. Cooking all day, making sure dinner is put on the table with  healthy choices. Next on my to do list is making sure that I have healthy nut free and egg free food choices for my son. This is the next chapter in our family life that I will have to keep going forward with as there is no stopping now.

I’d like to share with you a few of my own fun easy quick-lunch/snack suggestions for preschoolers or junior/senior kindergarten children. I’m sure there are a lot of other Mom’s, Dad’s and caregivers out there starting to think “What am I going to do”. With many great websites out there with tips, tricks, recipes and all that “Back to school crazes” I will give you my top 10 rotation so this will give myself a 3 week rotation of different food choices” please feel free to post in the comment box below your Top 3 picks for lunch favorites.

Stuffed Peppers


I have taken a break from blogging for a while due to business being a hit
and actually no real time to do blogging on the side. I now have a monthly news
letter to keep everyone up to date. Thought it may be a bit more interesting to
everyone. So that all my news is up to date and monthly. I will blog when I feel
I have a moment or 2 to spare.

I’d like to share a very yummy stuffed
pepper recipe that I made for tonight’s dinner. It’s a great way to use up
garden fresh peppers especially when you don’t know what to do with

Here is the recipe and a few photos to follow!
I hope you enjoy
and let me know your thoughts if you make it how did it turn out for

Stuffed Peppers

•6 green bell peppers
tablespoons butter
•1 tablespoon olive oil
•1/2 cup chopped onion
cup chopped celery
•1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes
•1 can (8 ounces)
tomato sauce
•1 clove garlic, crushed
•1 teaspoon dried leaf
•1/2 teaspoon dried leaf basil
•2 teaspoons salt, divided
teaspoon ground black pepper, divided
•1 egg, lightly beaten
•1 1/2
teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
•1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef or chuck
1/2 cups cooked long-grain rice
•shredded mild Cheddar cheese, about 1/2 to
3/4 cup, optional


Directions for stuffed peppers with
ground beef and rice
Cut tops off peppers; remove seeds and membranes. Chop
edible part of tops and set aside. Rinse peppers under cold water. Place peppers
in a large pot; cover with salted water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover,
and simmer for 5 minutes. Drain peppers and set aside.
Heat olive oil and
butter in a large skillet over medium heat until hot. Sauté chopped green pepper
(from tops), chopped onion, and chopped celery for about 5 minutes, or until
vegetables are tender. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, crushed garlic, oregano,
basil, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Simmer for about 10

In a large mixing bowl, combine egg with remaining 1 teaspoon
salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. Gently stir to blend;
add ground beef, cooked rice, and 1 cup of the tomato mixture. Mix well. Stuff
peppers with meat mixture and place in a 3-quart baking dish. Pour remaining
tomato mixture over the stuffed peppers. Bake at 350° for 55 to 65 minutes. If
desired, top stuffed peppers with a little shredded Cheddar cheese just before
peppers are done; bake until cheese is melted.
