I'm always curious about what chef parents are packing for their kids' lunches. Aren't you? Chef and mom Casey Repetti posts the lunches that she makes for her 4 year old son on Instagram and they're super cute.
I was thrilled to host Casey for an IG takeover and wanted to take this moment to post the lunches that she packed for her son (using the free LaLa Lunchbox app!) If you aren't familiar with Casey, go right now to her website where you'll find delicious, easy, family friendly recipes. (Ok, don't go yet... finish reading this post first!) You can also connect with Casey on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. I recommend that!
Without further ado, here's what Casey shared with our LaLa Lunchbox IG followers:
Casey's tuna sandwiches for her little guy aren't just ordinary tuna sandwiches though... she gives them pizazz by adding taco seasoning! And look how she has turned regular cukes and carrots into something fun just by using a crinkle cutter! Note to self: I may need to add that to the lunch prep arsenal.
Next up, Casey shared an absolute fave: DIY tacos. Taco Tuesday rocks - except for the fact that one of my kids routinely makes himself a "cheese taco" and calls it a day, ignoring all of the other delicious accoutrements. Sigh. Casey's son has the right idea though:
Casey's final Lunchbox post had a great tip: "sandwich sushi" can include basically anything - from roasted veggies to pb and j to deli meats. Get a burrito sized wrap, fill, roll, slice and enjoy. The possibilities are endless!
So go ahead and show Casey some love with a follow. Dig into the easy recipes on her website and when you recreate them, be sure to tag your posts with #Casey2Cook!
