{Christmas Countdown} Advent Lunches 2014: Week 1

This week kicked off our yearly holiday tradition of #AdventLunches! Each year, I make Little Miss holiday theme lunches with a Christmas Countdown. I include the countdown number somewhere in the lunch, either written on a Lunchbox Love Note or made into a cute food item within the lunch itself. She looks forward to it every year! 

Here's what we packed for week one of 2014:

Lunch Made Easy: Halloween Ideas for Kids

'Twas the week of Halloween, as the children prepared. 
Costumes and buckets and goodies to share. 
There were scary ghoblins and spooky ghosts, 
but the tiny princesses were eager most.
Going door to door, teal pumpkins in sight.
Clinching each other hands, in fear of a fright!

Fall Baking: Chunky Apple Pumpkin Muffins #Recipe {Gluten Free & Top 8 Allergen Free}

Once those temperatures drop and the leaves start to change, there's a new feeling in the air... a crisp, fresh start to each day.

I can't think of anything else other than baking.
And not just any baking... it has to involve apples, pumpkin, and warm spices. 

Thankfully, my little sous chef agrees. 
We usually set aside time on the weekends to head into the kitchen and start mixing and creating. This recipe was from one of those weekend adventures. 

Gluten free and free from the Top 8 most common allergens, these allergy friendly delights are sure to warm your belly and your home with their delicious smells and taste!

Lunch Made Easy: Weekly School Round-Up #NutFree #GlutenFree #AllergyFriendly

What a fabulously fun last week and half! 
I was in Las Vegas for the Food Allergy Bloggers Conference (#FABlogCon) until Monday. It was such a great experience - filled with laughter, tears, education, and surrounded by inspiring advocates within the gluten free & food allergy community. 

I'll be sharing more from this year's conference in the next week or two, but you can read my recap from last year if you want to know more about it. 

Just because this Mama is gone, Little Miss still has to eat! Here's a round-up of our latest lunch posts we've been sharing on Facebook and Instagram. Make sure you're following us there too!

Lunch Made Easy: Microwave "Bread" Sandwiches {Gluten, Dairy, Nut, & Soy Free}

Pinterest scrolling always turns up interesting finds... like this one: "Gluten Free Bread in Seconds".

It's for a microwave, instant gluten free bread (that can also be made dairy free, as well as, nut & soy free). I was curious... so I gave it a try! 

The result... I'll explain more below, but I'd really call this a "Gluten Free Pancake in Seconds" rather than "Bread" since that's more the texture and consistency. Either way, fun to try in a pinch.

Lunch Made Easy: Sandwich Cutter Kitty

A sandwich cutter and/or cookie cutter can go a long way when it comes to adding fun to lunch.

This sandwich might look detailed but with a simple cutter by CuteZCute, I was able to add some fun to an otherwise boring lunch.

As always, all our lunches are peanut free & tree nut free, as well as, gluten free & more:

Lunch Made Easy: Back to School Bus!

Do you subscribe to Parents Magazine
If so, you might have read the great article in the September 2014 issue about Food Allergies in Schools. If you don't have the hard copy, you can read the article online by clicking here

I was honored to be interviewed for the article and share a few personal experiences dealing with food allergies at school for my Little Miss.

While checking out the issue, there was a snippet inside for Family Fun Magazine and their Treat of the Month which happened to be a fun school bus lunch for back-to-school called "Miles of Smiles". I couldn't think of a more fun way to celebrate Little Miss' first full day of the new school year than with an extra special school bento lunch!
