Busy mornings…

The other day I mentioned that not all of my lunches are created equal.  We often have busy mornings so I have to put my hobby of creating detailed lunches aside and just focus on getting the job done.  Today was one of those days so for those of you requesting to see an “everyday lunch”…here it is.  I’m going to make more of an effort to include these types of posts moving forward just to give everyone some simple & easy lunch ideas.   I do also want to take a moment to encourage any readers that might have questions to write them in the comments section.  Then, as time allows I will update the FAQ and Favorite Things sections with my responses to your questions/requests.

Today’s lunch includes:  turkey/bacon/cheese pita pocket, plum slices, cucumber slices, hardboiled egg, almonds & homemade “Twix” candy bar (I store these in the freezer and pull them out as needed…perfect for a busy morning!)  The lunchbox is the “No Ears Lunchbox” from Goodbyn.

My boys don’t care for “regular” pita’s as they are a typically hard to chew and tend to be quite dry.  I found this pita pocket by Joseph’s and they are very thin and soft.  Plus, they are much healthier than an average pita.  It’s a great sandwich pocket and my boys love them!  Every now and again I’ll make pita crackers with these and we use them to dip in hummus.  (I’ll post about that another day.)

    Great post! Thank you!! I’m not sure if this has been addressed before, as I’m a new follower, but I was wondering how do you keep the lunches chilled while the kids are at school? Especially with the Bento boxes and the box you have in this post.. is the Bento box and the like still put inside a separate lunch box with an ice pack then? Thanks again!

    Great website… just curious, I noticed you have lots of little containers like the silicon muffin cup that you put almonds inside. I’m guessing when it actually gets closed up and tossed around in the car and in to school, the contents spill out? True? Or do you have a secret?
