Rubbermaid Lunch Blox

As I've mentioned, the school year is now starting and I am proud to say that with the exception of probably 5 days throughout the year, I pack my lunch the rest of the time.  Alex is also going to need his lunch packed too, so when Rubbermaid sent me their new Sandwich LunchBlox kit to review I was excited to see what they had designed.

They sent me their Sandwich LunchBlox (left) for free to try, but I ended up loving it so much that when I spotted their lunch divider tray and the Salad Lunch Blox in the store on sale I picked them up too.  The LunchBlox with dividers (middle) is perfect size for Alex's lunch box and comes with 2 dividers inside it that can be removed. I can pack so many yummy things in there.

The Salad LunchBlox (right) has me really excited because I am so tired of having to find containers for all of my salad fixings so they don't get all smooshy by lunch time.  Plus the dressing container is a perfect portion.

The best thing I love is the size.  I couldn't believe how many lunch containers I found that were huge and barely fit in lunch bags that are out there. The kits are accompanied with ice packs that are nice and slim so they don't take up too much bulk in my lunch bag. The pieces all interlock together for easy organization too.  These are definitely going to make my life easier this school year.

I realized I never updated my Halloween Pictures.

My little guys were just adorable this Halloween and boy did they haul in the treats.

Alex dressed up as Spider Man for trick-or-treating at preschool and had a great time going around the classrooms getting goodies.

For actual trick-or-treating, Alex went as a fireman and Cameron went as his faithful companion, a dalmatian.  I have to pat myself on the back for decorating the wagon up as a fire truck. 

I liked getting into the spirit of the season.  It is such a let down when the trick-or-treaters that do come around have no costumes or manners :(

Good thing I got this up before the next holiday!

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken

I love spicy Buffalo Chicken and this tasty recipe was a snap to make.

I found this on Pinterest originating from here but below is my own variation and recommendations.

3-4 Chicken Breasts (I used fresh)
Franks Red Hot Sauce (regular or buffalo)
Dried Ranch Dressing Mix
2-3 tbsp. butter

Place Chicken in Slow Cooker
Pour approx. 1/2 bottle of sauce on top
1/4 to 1/2 of the dressing mix.  (I used 1/2 and found it to be too salty)

Cook on low for 6-8 hours

Shred up the chicken, add more sauce or a little water if necessary, but the chicken will shred up perfectly.
Put butter on top for about 15 more minutes, stir and then serve

**I think adding a little cream cheese to this recipe also might be a nice addition, but I'd melt that in the slow cooker prior to adding the chicken**

This is so yummy and very versatile to serve with anything.  I especially love it mixed in a cool salad with a little ranch dressing.  With the Super Bowl coming up too this would be a…

Pirate Party Game - Ring Toss

Why didn't I think of this?!  I came across this from Hostess with the Mostess site, my go-to party planning inspiration blog.  What an awesome game and pretty inexpensive if you were a savvy shopper and picked up the pirate hooks for $1 at Target along with some swim diving rings also in the $1 spot.

This would've been perfect for Alex's 4th Birthday Pirate Party where we played "Pin the Hook on Captain Hook".
