I'm tired of scrambling school mornings, making breakfast, doing hair, & packing lunches.
Last week I said,
"I wish there was a way to make the week's lunches all at once."
I figured it out!
"Duh. why didn't I do this before?"
Here it is. Two boxes.
One box stays in the fridge, one on the shelf.
Each day I grab stuff and throw it in their lunch bags.
BOX 1: Refrigerated items. Here's ideas to put in it:
- cheese in baggies
- cut up fruit in containers (melon, peaches, strawberries)
- cut up veggies in containers (carrots, peppers, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes)
- little containers of dips (ranch, hummus, peanut butter)
- Sandwiches. PPJ don't work that well, but meat sandwiches do. Keeping a sandwich in the fridge for 5 says is possible, put the mayo between the layers of meat/cheese. It keeps the bread from getting soggy.
- Applesauce, canned fruit, Yogurt. See those containers on the right in the picture? I got those so I spend less on serving size items. Works for
- Fill servings in baggies: crackers, chips, rice cakes, cereal, granola, popcorn
- granola bars
- fruit leather
