    My son doesn't like Oreos. Can you believe that??? lol He eats the cream and ditches the cookie. Sadly, he ditches it into his lunch box, where it beats around against the blue goo ice pack and makes a mess.

    I haven't explained the changes to his lunch to him yet b/c I need to come up with the money to buy the new lunch box first. Once I have the new lunch box, he'll be so excited about it that he won't care that his lunch is changing.

    Ah teens! It might be the kindest thing to not buy him the shampoo. Let him suffer with it long enough to be prepared to do what it takes. This, of course, is just a suggestion, and it might inspire an even better idea. Or even tell him he should buy the shampoo himself and you will pay him back for it once he has used it up, because you don't want to waste that much money on something he won't use. He's the one with a job, right?

    I like Judg's suggestion. Make him buy it and if he actually uses it, pay him back.

    I read on the Whole30 site that eczema is caused by wheat (or was it milk) allergies.

    Some ezcema is food related, but not all. For some it's partially genetic or seasonal/environmental. That's not to say that a better diet doesn't help mitigate it, but I eliminated dairy and wheat from my oldest for nearly 3 months when he was 3 to help his eczema and no dice. He just needed a different shampoo and cleaning routine in winter, that cleared it up. Even with dairy and some wheat in his diet, it hasn't reoccurred. I know it can be so itchy and uncomfortable.

    One lunchbox idea that my 5-year-old loves is turkey or cheese roll ups, using the turkey slice as the "tortilla". Turkey roll-up filled with some homemade mayo and cucumbers, cheese roll up with some cherry tomatoes. We keep a lot of dips on hand and that seems to be key for eating veggies. Sometimes he wants the roll ups plain so I just roll up the slices very narrow and have a couple of rows of them. Dried fruit is a great sweet treat. The Trader Joe's dried strawberries and mangoes are "dessert".

    I made 'meatmuffins' today: put a slice of bacon in each hole of a muffintray, then made meatballs witg 'everyday paleo's' recipe, packed with veggies! Zucchini, spinach, sweet potato, bell peppers, onion, garlic. I put the veggies in the foodprocessor, then put the mixture in a strainer. Mix the veggies with ground meat (I used half-half porc and beef) and spices. Fill the muffin-tray and bake in the oven. I made double amount to be sure we had leftovers. My kids lovvved these meatmuffins! Even my youngest 'I don't like veggies' didn't even realize they were full of veggies! Tomorrow I'll give them for lunch, cold. If they like them cold I'll be making these regularly for lunchboxes!
    Tomorrow DH an I are married 10 years, I can't believe it's that long already! Friday DS1 leaves for 2 weeks in Italy. DH and I are away for the weekend, going to Ghent. We'll be seeing Leonard Cohen in concert on sunday evening. DS2 and DS3 will be staying with my parents.
    Have a lovely weekend everybody!

    Oh how fun!

    I make a meatloaf recipe that I found on here that uses carrots and celery as the "filler" to prevent the drying out that happens without the filler. My kids absolutely love them (I do too). Mmmm.... it sounds so tasty that now I'm craving it... lol

    Candy - I feel for you on the teenaged issues........... they seem to be unending - and always fueled with emotion! Kids never want to do what mom says is best......... it goes with the territory. But, this too shall end as they grow and mature. That of course means nothing as we mothers are trying to navigate through those difficult years.......... prayers and sympathies go out to all moms of teens! UGH - I'm so glad those years are behind me.

    The worst part is, at least based on experience from when I was a teen, they ignore what you say and by the time they realize you were right, they're an adult and on their own already, wishing they'd listened to their parents a bit more... My kids are young so I don't have any direct experience, but I bet this can be so frustrating b/c parents know their kids will soon be gone and the influence they have once that happens is too little, too late... *sigh* Good luck, hun!

    Brilliant! Kids will eat anything in muffin form, of course!! It's how I get eggs into my oldest, egg muffins. But these meatmuffins are genius! Thanks for sharing.

    They did love them at room temperature and are actually looking forward to school lunches, lol! Today I made ground beef jerky (from Eat like a dinosaur) and the love it so much I had to stop them from eating it all in one go! After the weekend I'm going to try to make beef jerky as well. I can't believe the changes in my little picky eater DS3: today I roasted cauliflower in the oven, but also some boksoy. He actually tasted the crispy leave of the boksoy without me even insisting! And he liked it! I think his taste is changing, or maybe he's just growing .

    Oh I bought some small cucumbers too, and will pickle them after the weekend! Lots to do next week . AND I have a first order for my glutenfree bakery! Yay!!!

    So our bags are packed. Tomorrow we first go to Crossfit, then my mom picks us up and leaves DH and me at the train station and takes the kiddos home with her. DS1 arrived in Italy, which means 2 relaxing weeks for us too .
