Back to School Lunches

With school starting in less than 2 weeks, we’ve started preparing ourselves for a change in routine. With that comes the task of packing lunch.  I love to cook, but packing Zach’s lunch, every night, is something that I don’t look forward to.

Do you run out of ideas?

Here’s a few of my thoughts that lead me to the constant road block:

  • Has to stay cold/hot for a 4-5 hours
  • Has to be carried around school, with a backpack, and whatever else he may need for that day
  • Probably dropped and, possibly stepped on, before lunch
  • Enough to hold him over for 3-4 hours
  • Able to be eaten in 15 minutes so there’s time to socialize (that’s the best part of lunch.)
  • Has to be a “cool” lunch

So, here’s a different twist to my blog, I need your help!  What is on your school lunch menu?  Comment below and I will compile everyone’s feedback into a helpful “Back to School Lunch, Revisited”, post, later in the week.  I can’t wait to hear from all of you!
