Re: Packed Lunches

-Freezer Bean and Cheese Burritos (I just prep the beans in the crockpot, cook a vat of rice and make a ton of burritos, wrap individually, and freeze... can be reheated in microwave or oven)
-Granola Energy Balls
-Freezer Granola Bars
-Turkey Dog, Cheese, and Tomato Kabobs
-Comfort Meatballs (good warm or cold, imo) I just freeze a bunch when making
-Hard Boiled Eggs
-Cracker Sandwiches with any variation: peanut butter, cheese, deli meats, egg salad
-Muffin Tin Lunches with a variety of odds and ends (whatever I have in the fridge or pantry): veggies, fruit slices or grapes, yogurt, cheese, nuts

Do you have a recipe for the granola energy balls and the comfort meatballs?

Re: Packed Lunches

Lovin' this thread... great blogs/links and ideas! My LO just started kindergarten, I'm trying to send lunches from home rather than have him eat school stuff.

Re: Packed Lunches

Thanks for the ideas everyone! My husband is going to be taking lunches starting tomorrow. He's happy with PB and J most days, but it will be nice to give him something special once a week

Re: Packed Lunches

I usually pack sandwiches on my daughter's lunch box. Usually her sandwich filling consists of baked chicken meat, lettuce and tomato. Sometimes if we run out of bread, I cook pasta a night before her school day. She loves carbonara, granola bar and garlic bread.

o On a cold day put hot chocolate into the thermos as lunch treat. If made with skim milk and a low sugar chocolate mix it will have less sugar then the cafeteria chocolate milk. You could also do warm apple cider, or a warm herbal tea.



o Make extra smoothy at breakfast and pour the leftovers into the thermos to enjoy with lunch.



o Put warm taco meat or beans into the thermos and serve with chips for nachos.



o Warm Spagettios, ravioli, spaghetti, or mac & cheese and place in the thermos. Serve with chunks of bread.



o Warm mashed potatoes to serve with a meatloaf or pot roast sandwich made from leftovers.



o On one website I saw that someone froze ice cream and then put it in a lunch box, Iím not so sure about that, but try it!
These ideas are so much fun! I must try the hot dog with dh
