Thursday, September 27, 2012 Lunch Boxes Review

I almost always bring my lunch to work, and I usually use your typical lunch bag to carry my food. It's nice to have options though, and I was given the opportunity to review one of the lunch boxes offered by I decided to review the Lunch Pot by Black + Blum. This is not your typical lunch box. It is instead two containers that fit together to make a lunch box without the box. I think it's ingenious.

As for, it "is a place where you will find our family of "best of the best" reusables available in many categories so you can eliminate disposables from every part of your life -- from bags and bottles to lunch, household items and beyond." There are some great items there - it's worth a look around. :-)

10 of 10: This lunch box works great! I don't rate products as a 10 of 10 unless they truly are stellar, and this is! The two containers (BPA free! and microwave safe) are a good size to fit food, they seal securely, and they snap together like a charm and are very easy to carry around. There is even a spork attached!

* provided me with this complimentary sample product to review. The review is my own opinion.

Moroccan Chicken

In trying new recipes, I decided to make Moroccan Chicken with Cauliflower and Zucchini. It turned out quite nicely as pictured below.

Moroccan Chicken

2 chicken breasts
1 tbsp. oil
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. cumin
1 tbsp. garlic
1 small zucchini cubed
1.5 c. cauliflower pieces

Cook chicken in skillet with oil. Add spices and vegetables and continue cooking until all is seasoned.

This was a fairly simple recipe, but it was fun to try a new combination of spices and veggies with chicken.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I went for a 30 mile bike ride this morning and enjoyed exploring even more of Grand Rapids. Below is a crane I saw.
