With school starting so does the necessity of lunch packing.
I sometimes just get into these loooong non creative modes. In fact I usually end up sending a check and letting them buy.
This year it's different because lunch cannot be bought for 2 of my kiddos.
So I want to get on top of these lunch box blues while it's still new.
Now, Starting the year is always much more fun to pack then lets say February.
But the really nice thing is that the non buyers do have microwave access. So that makes life a little easier.
Today I got to take a long walk with my friend Heather. I'd post pictures of my blisters to prove how long it was... And to warn you against wearing ill fitting shoes on said walks but it was gross so I'll just show you pretty pictures of food instead.
Now where was I? O yes, Heather...
She is inspiring in all things domestic. Especially my organization dreams.
She gave me a little tip that she did and I hopped right on that idea.
Take one quart frozen peaches and 1 quart frozen strawberries. Add one can of Sprite or Sierra Mist or whatever lemon lime soda you want... freeze this in small cups. I added other fruit. Like banana's or grapes. Easy Easy.
More fruit. My kids just want to eat it. "Mom can I have more fruit slush"? Has been an ongoing question this evening. "Nope Eat the Kiwi", I keep saying. I do have concerns about these boxes even making it to the morning for lunches.
Of course if all else fails we can revert to PB and J. Or Wraps.
What are your brown baggin' favorites?
I would love to hear them!
