My lunch options have always been dismal. My mother was never good at packing my lunches (though she did write the best lunch box notes EVER, with the best images of her being grumpy and vacuuming at home while I was at school). And I have never been good at packing my lunches. Even when I did pack my lunches I would never eat them. So lunch has devolved into fast food doldrums, or getting so hungry that I run into the 7/11 for something. Which is sort of terrifying, I know. I've been trying to keep my desk stuffed with good healthy snacks so that I don't get too hungry and just grab the first lunch that passes in front of me. But with the heat of summer my patience/ will power goes COMPLETELY out the window. Planning, and making the lunch the night before is really the only solution, BUT I JUST DON'T WANNA!!! Well, I probably just don't wanna because I don't have any fun options. So while thinking of this very thing I was rummaging around Facebook one day. A friend of mine started posting her pictures of the lunches she was making her toddler. They were so cute, and they looked just like really yummy homemade lunchables. Now, I seriously love lunchables, not so much for what they have in them, but I love the compartmentalized food options. And I think it goes back to when I was studying Japanese culture while eating tons and tons of bento boxes for lunch. So I did a little search on the internet and found a GREAT site on homemade, healthy lunchable like meals. And really they are all so cute after you make them how could you not eat them! Ooooo and there is a whole pin board for ideas as well !!! She even has a book on making lunches just from Trader Joe's store. Which besides Target is pretty much the only place I shop now. So I might have to check that book out. If I end up getting it I'll report back on my findings. Anything to get me excited about making my lunches would be EXTREMELY helpful. I swear when the heat of summer is over, and I start caring again about life, and things I am going to be all over making some of these.
Welcome to my little corner of the internet. This is my space where I can showcase my obsession with paper crafting, and a few products I've cooked up along the way. Thank you so much for stopping by.
