It's Lunch Revolution Time

What's a party without presents???  And if you stop by my house.....I'd even give you a piece of this yummy slice that I just tried.  I got the recipe from Carole over at Madness and Mess, and apparently it is super common over in New Zealand.  I will warn you.....it is very addictive if you like chocolate........and it's super easy too! (which I appreciate)..........and it's nut free (or can be) so it's good for a lunch box treat as well.  
To say thanks for stopping by I am running two giveaways that I hope are in keeping with the Lunch Revolution theme.  The first giveaway can only be shipped to a US or Canadian address and the second can be sent to anywhere else (not including the US or Canada).  So click on the links below to enter the giveaway which is appropriate for you if you are interested.  And if you are around....come back tomorrow for a list of lunch ideas to get ready for those back to school lunches...................as the party continues.....that's right.......it's a sleep over party!  Check out more party fun over at the Cookie Jar.

Take me to the Lunch Revolution Giveaway (US and Canada only)

Now if you don't have the time to stop by for a piece of Chocolate Slice......maybe you'd like to make some for yourself.

Mmmm....chocolate. Evan's preschool is nut free and chocolate free which is throwing me for a bit of a loop.

Chocolate free?? What is up with that?? Have you tried the blondie bars recipe on the back of the Rogers Sugar bag?? Those are delicious, and keep well.
