The Best Holiday Deals Parents Need to Know About on Kitchen Tools, Clothes, and More!

A little known fact about me is that the week of Thanksgiving, and on through the holidays, I'm glued to deal websites seeking out the best possible prices on just about everything. From kitchen gadgets, to tech, to shoes, I'm always wanting to find those items that I've been waiting for all year long. This year I wanted to do the hard work for you to make your job as a parent just a little bit easier. It's 2020, so however we can help each other out, I'm here for it.

How to Make a Grilled Cheese Computer Remote School Lunch

We all know that not only is the world different in 2020 because of a pandemic, but school is vastly different as well. I have one child in full-time traditional school (on a modified schedule), one child who is completely remote, and one who is hybrid (on a modified schedule). Could anyone have predicted how complicated this year would be? I think I have finally accepted that the rest of this school year will probably be changing by the week. Thankfully we have technology so that my kids don't miss school days, even when there is snow this winter. This is why it was time for me to celebrate their remote learning accomplishments with a grilled cheese laptop computer lunch! Learn to make it below.

I used to think that my technology knowledge was enough to get through any tech issues. As a dad I can fix anything, right? However, as my oldest has become a teenager I've found myself passing more of our family's tech problems on to her. My kids have grown up being digital natives while I just learned a little about computers as a hobby in my 20's. This is why I'm thankful for ESET and their new free Safer Kids Online guide for parents that help us to keep our kids safe on their many devices.

How to Make an Among Us School Lunch Recipe

If your kids are like mine they are obsessed, I mean OBSESSED with the game Among Us. How can you tell? If they go around saying "sus" all the time that would be your first clue. Your second would be if they keep talking about saving up money for hats and alien dogs with one eye. Well if you are in the same boat..ere...spaceship as me, then it might be time to delight them with an Among Us lunch. And you're in luck, because I'm going to show you how to make it!

 How to Make a Twilight Saga Book Lunch

I always tell people that I get my inspiration from my kids. I make food art lunches based on what they are into at the moment. This is one of those lunches. My daughter has been addicted to Twilight over the last few months. She has read the entire book series twice now and is watching the movies with my wife. So I figured it was time to make her a lunch that celebrates her newest passion, the competition of Team Edward vs. Team Jacob, and supernatural...fruit? 

Since my daughter has been so into the Twilight saga books, I wanted to design the lunch after one of the book covers. I also had to go with what I had in my kitchen since I was running short on time and couldn't go to the store. Thankfully my daughter loves black olives almost as much as shoes Twilight! Keep reading to see how I made the rest.

How to Make a The Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington Lunch

If you have followed my blog for awhile you know Disney's The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of our favorite seasonal movies. It just puts us in the mood for the holidays. I try to make a lunch based on the movie every Halloween, Christmas, or even both! This year is no exception so it was time to make a Jack Skellington lunch featuring Oogie Boogie.

Who is your favorite character from this movie? Is it Jack? Sally? Zero? They are all so good it's hard to choose. My kids are even planning to dress up as character from The Nightmare Before Christmas this Halloween. If your kids are into this movie as much as mine are, keep reading to find out how to make them this lunch!

Creepy Graveyard Halloween Pasta Recipe

Who else has Halloween vibes right now? This is one of my family's favorite times of year and it's definitely a fun time to make Halloween recipes. This is why I had to create a kid-friendly creepy graveyard recipe complete with Jack-O-Lantern artisan tomatoes from Red Sun Farms, black bean pasta, mummy juice box, and more! Keep reading to find out how to make this for your family.

We try to always have a supply of Red Sun Farms bite sized tomatoes on hand because not only are they perfect for recipes, but they make a great snack that is actually good for you. It's so easy to just keep a container on the counter and quickly pop one in my mouth when I need a quick snack, but I also need to keep moving to get stuff done. Try them when you make this Halloween graveyard recipe, or in your next salad!
