Cooking Light's September Issue

It's September! You know what that means? That it's time to enjoy the fruits of my (our) labor during Cooking Light's Great American Healthy Lunch Box Challenge. :) As one of 10 total finalists, I received an awesome Cooking Light Cookbook as well as a $100 Amex gift card (of which I am sharing 1/4 w/ you in my 1st Blogiversary giveaway). Sweet! And as the winner of the Office Lunch Category, my lunch appears in this month's issue of Cooking Light along with a pretty awesome Phineas and Ferb lunch from the school lunch category. Woo hoo! Congrats to us. :)

So here it is. It's pretty cool to see my lunch and name in print! :) It would have been sweet if my watermark weren't cropped out and extra sweet if a link to my blog was included but as Little Sis reminded me "You should just be happy it's in the magazine, Mommy!" and that I am. :)


Here's a full picture of the winning lunch in my Lunchbots and a link to the post: NYC Post-Gluttony Lunch. Kind of a funny name, I know. Oh well. ;)


How sweet it was of my husband to bring home 2 copies of this issue the moment they hit the newsstands! And how sweet of the Cooking Light rep, Allison, to send me 3 copies of the issue in the mail. Do you think I should have one bronzed? haha!


And here's a silly selfie of me since I really need to get this post out along with my 1st Blogiversary post, so here it is, I in my cap settling down for a long winter's... err, because I was having a severely bad hair day. :)


Thanks again for all the help! and don't forget to enter my giveaway!
