As you may know, we homeschool our kids. That means no lunchboxes to pack at night for the next day. But that doesn’t mean our kids don’t eat lunch! We have a specific schedule for our week days and lunch is definitely on the list. And of course I struggle, like any other parent out there. Kids can be picky or get tired of the same stuff.

Oscar Mayer to the rescue with their Old World Inspired Classic Pepperoni and Salami. Because pepperoni is not only for pizza! Recent studies show that popularity of pepperoni as a meat for sandwiches is increasing and experts say that it will continue to grow. So let’s hop on this train and make a pepperoni sandwich!

Our kids loved these subs! Our oldest daughter was happy to help with making them. We also took them in our lunchboxes to the park this past weekend. Paired with apples that are finally in season, these sandwiches were the starts of our picnic. My Husband is a big fan of the Cracked Black Pepper Salami and I happen to love the Turkey Salami. Oscar Mayer selection has something for everyone.

I am delivering the recipe for these muffins as promised! I actually made them few weeks ago, right after I made this banana bread and this pumpkin bread. At that time, sweet breads and muffins were filling my kitchen counters like they were going out of style! My whole family was taste testing everything. I was surprised to see how much the kids loved these muffins. They asked for them few times since then and I made them again happily. They are good for you and there is no sacrifice in flavor. These muffins have whole wheat flour and Greek yogurt in them, which makes them a better option for a breakfast or snack.

This year, I decided to sign both of our daughters for dance classes. Our oldest one will be taking ballet and jazz and her sister is starting her first  year of jazz. That means Tuesday nights will be a little bit longer for us. That also means that I am going to need more energy to get through it. These little bites are my favorite solution. Knowing how much my kids love my chewy granola bars, I knew that these bites would be a hit as well. They are easy to make (actually the kids can make them themselves!), don’t take much space in a lunchbox and are so fun to pop in!
