Tuna Quesadillas #SundaySupper

 

First let me tell you that making school lunches is something that I have to do on a regular basis, and I always try to come out with something inventing and different, not only because my girls love a good homemade lunch at school but also because there is nothing more satisfying to me that having a great balanced meal for them.

And this is just one of the reasons to why I love so much this theme today. When I was making my meal plan for the first 2 months of school, yes I know is still early but I like to be prepare, I came out with this different and inventive quesadilla, that I actually made and let the girls try to see if this would be a good option for them.

And let me tell you it was a great idea, they love it so much that of course, I have to make it before school again. But to be honest I don’t mind, it makes me happier than this. This quesadilla is a great hot lunch option, not only because is easy to make, you can find all the ingredients in your pantry and it only takes 10 minutes if your time in the morning.
So, don’t worry about making a hot lunch for the kiddos this school year because we have it cover.

Top 5 Prep Ahead Snacks #ZiplocBacktoSchool #ad #CollectiveBias

 

In my crazy life, there is always a way to get organized and ready for back-to-school, and I’m so happy I can rely on amazing products with great quality like Ziploc® brand products. I can’t imagine my life when school starts without my go-to essentials.

I want to share my top 5 prep ahead snacks along with tips to make back-to-school fun and super easy for you. Why not make the last days of summer productive because we need to work just a little bit during summer time to make our life so much easier for school?

#ziplocbacktoschool products

First, we need to talk about all the supplies that we will need to make some personalized Ziploc® brand Bags. You know the kids love when we take our time to make something super special for them, and these bags are super easy to personalize so that every time they open their lunch box, a smile will appear on their faces.

materials #ziplocbacktoschool

For me, this is also an easy way to have everything on hand and to keep my kids from fighting about their favorite lunch or how different they want their snack because my girls like different things all the time.

Ok, here we go, we need:
Markers
Stickers
Ziploc® brand Snack Bags
Ziploc® brand Sandwich Bags or
Ziploc® brand Containers

Have you seen the super amazing feature of the Ziploc® brand Bags with Easy Open Tabs®? They are totally different and great for the kiddos to open their bags by themselves with ease.

I like to personalize the bags with their names and adding some decorations or stickers. They love it and it is a great way to keep all snack and lunches out of the reach of other kids. You can make some of these personalized Ziploc® brand Storage Bags with Easy Open Tabs® ahead of time and have them on hand. I like to keep one box on my fridge and another on my pantry.

Now that we have our bags ready I would love to share my prep ahead snacks. I have so many recommendations but my favorites are the ones you can have ready and the week before.

1- Raisins and cheese: you can have portions of ¼ cup of raisins and one string cheese in your fridge.

2- Grapes: go to the market, wash and dry your grapes and portion about 20 grapes per bag.

3- Oranges: every week peel and portion half of an orange in a bag. Cool, fresh and delicious.

4- Crackers: about 8 crackers are perfect or about ¼ cup of cheese crackers to complement the snack.

5- Carrots and celery: perfect for hot days, and you can use a small Ziploc® brand Container to add caramel, ranch dressing or peanut butter.

RECOMMENDATIONS

To make it easy and more organized, keep your snacks in a big Ziploc® brand Container on the fridge as well in your pantry. An organized life is a better life.
Make your prep on Sundays because in general, Sundays are a slow day and you only will need to make a week’s worth of snacks and lunches.

Back To The School Routine #FuelForSchool #Ad #Cbias

The first day of school is so important in my culture, I can hear my dad calling us in the morning, Arriba, Arriba! Hora de levantarse! And me going directly to the bathroom to take a shower. Moorings were very difficult for me, specially when you have to be at school before 7 am.

Now I do the same with my girls and it is also difficult not to get cuddle in the blankets, specially when is still dark outside. It is a costume the we take showers in the morning, everybody in country do it, specially before school, it helps to the kids to start the day and the go super fresh and ready to learn.

But sometimes is difficult to get into that routine, and having a complete nutritious breakfast is also very important. And to make my mornings very easy I use Jimmy Dean® Sausage, Egg & Cheese Croissant Sandwiches, so easy and delicious to use. To make it more especial I do a Breakfast Care Package, so easy and my daughters love this special gift in the morning. Do don’t have to do this all the time, this is a special first day of school present, just like my mom did for us.

CARE PACKAGE

Is so simple you only need, a small box (I use a cupcake carrier box) tissue paper, cupcake paper cups or small plastic container.
For the breakfast food 1-Jimmy Dean® Sausage, Egg & Cheese Croissant Sandwiches, 1- Chocolate Milk or Regular Milk, 1/2 of apple in slices.

#FuelForSchool #Ad #Cbias
And is simple; just place some tissue paper in the bottom, heat the Jimmy Dean® Sausage, Egg & Cheese Croissant Sandwiches according to package directions, place in a cupcake cup, and place the apple slices in another cupcake cup. Put everything inside the box, and call your kids for breakfast.

Remember to use their favorite colores, and make it all fun and don’t forget the hugs and kisses. Jimmy Dean® breakfast sandwiches are delicious, satisfying, high quality breakfast solutions for the perfect start to any morning.

And of course when they come back from school I highly recommend a delicious State Fair® Corn Dog, this is another way to make the first day the most special day for them. State Fair® Brand produces a variety of delicious corn dogs featuring a signature honey-sweetened cornbread batter. You can find State Fair® Corn Dogs in the freezer section at Walmart.

#FuelForSchool #Ad #Cbias 6And easy way to feed your family in the mornings without all the hassle, and give a Highlight protein, especially for State Fair® but also for Jimmy Dean® products.

You can find all this products and the care package materials at Walmart, another reason why I love shopping there.

What are some of your favorite back to school tips and tricks? I’d love to hear your favorite!
