Asian Lunchbox Noodles

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

My kids will be beginning their school year in just a couple of short weeks. I am so sad to see our summer come to an end, but also love their excitement and enthusiasm to get back to their favorite friends and learning.

With beginning the school year comes the challenge of making lunchtime fun for my kids. Sandwiches are our usual lunchbox standby, but I thought it would be fun to step out of the sandwich box, so to speak, and offer my kids another fun lunch that could be made and prepared ahead for our busy mornings.

These Asian Lunchbox Noodles fit the lunch bill perfectly! They can be made ahead, are great at any temperature, and you can add your child’s favorite flavors to them to spice them up. Tuck these into a reuseable Glad container or prepare these for any easy weeknight meal when extracurricular activities can wreak havoc on the evening routines. These noodles are great anytime and a great solution for any lunch or dinner.

These last few weeks of summer and the beginning of the school year can be a true challenge for moms. This month  I am excited to be partnering with Glad to showcase some great strategies for moms to help keep kids entertained and get your school year off to a great start.

If you read magazines like Taste of Home or Family Circle, you may have spotted a familiar face tucked within the pages of your magazine. I had the opportunity to work with Glad on a fresh initiative arming moms with ideas to keep the kids entertained during the summer months, lunchbox inspiration to breathe life into tired lunches,  and great printables to help you get organized for the back-to-school season.
