Early birds- Bologna sandwich, chips and pears
DD- Ramen noodles with chopped broccoli and chicken. Marinated carrot salad.
The chicken and chopped broccoli were leftovers from the fridge. Luckily the chicken went well because it was cooked is a soy-Teriyaki marinade on Saturday.
I did not feel well last week so lunch was easy- mostly sandwiches. Lots of hot tea has helped immensely so I hope to be back to daily blogging.

twice baked potatoes from the freezer ( more then once)
leftover mexican food with chips and salsa
peanut butter and jelly sandwiches ( more then once)
enchildas from the freezer

I don't need to pack another lunch for the kids until Monday. DH will probably take leftover Thanksgiving food on Friday and Saturday. He has to work Sunday also but will probably get something with his friends at work.
So see you next week!

DD had bruschetta, a mini cheese ball with crackers, veggies and a fruit leather. I did a bunch of prep yesterday so I made her something a little different.
DH took Kielbada with white beans and tomatoes, salad and bread. He also took a apple and butter for the bread. I made it early so he could take it to work and it is what we had for dinner monday night. DH works nights.
DD had salad, pretzels and a cupcake. I did not make the cupcake, they were a day old bakery special. 12 mini dulce de leche cupcakes for 1.67.
We have found a lot of specials for convience food and I bought bulk chip bags from Amazon.com so there will be more prepackaged foods then we usually have.

Tuesday I had leftover spaghetti to use up so the early birds took it as spaghetti and DD had it as a pasta salad. She also had a cookie broken in thirds to fit in box, some cheese for the pasta salad, a hard boiled egg and granola bites. She also had a organic fruit leather and a salt packet for her egg.
Oldest DS had a can of pork and beans with some smoked sausage on top, pears, salad and some puffed crackers. ( Wednesday)
DD loved her lunch on Wednesday. She had a bluberry bagel with cream cheese, salad with italian dressing, puffed crackers and orange slices ( packed in a sandwich bag to prevent leakage).
Today I made ramen noodles and added chicken and green beans from last night dinner. The kids also had pineapple and granola bites.
DH took the items I prepared for dinner for lunch everyday this week. I did not get any pictures of his lunches.

Lego fruit snacks
The pirate booty was from one of those Amazon sales. I bought 2 cases and have been good about saving them for when I have little time. Meijer spaghetti hoops are on sale this week. My daughter would happily eat these every day but they look so yucky to me.LOL
I am a sucker for anything Lego so I bought the Lego fruit snacks as a surprise. Boy did that co-branding work on me :)

Lunch #2 Mexican rice, chips, salsa grapes and a mini Hershey bar
Lunch #3 ( Not pictured) Meatloaf, southwestern mashed potatoes and green beans. I made dinner in the afternoon and packed a lunch for DH from what I made and then I will just reheat it later for dinner for me and the kids.

Tuesday- Meat and cheese with crackers, vegetables with curry dip, chocolate pudding with chocolate chunks and bananas with berries. The curry dip is the dressing for the chicken salad for tonights dinner. The chocolate pudding is just from one of those snack packs from my cheap/ free after coupon stash with a few chocolate chunks on top. I did splurge this week by buying a pach each of raspberries and blueberries since they will be gone soon and my daughter loves them. The boys don't like berries so they will probably last all week.

Jason choose the quick turkey lunch ( again) but he is more concerned with speed then variety :)
Marcus is working again ( free lunch).
DH has been taking mostly leftovers and a few freezer meals but he wants to start taking low carb lunches again. I will need to plan better for that next week.

I added some links on the side to great lunch ideas. I hope you enjoy them!
Please forgive the terrible picture. Today the boys did a repeat of yesterday ( quick turkey sandwiches) and Sydney had breakfast for lunch. She really is not much of a eater in the morning so this worked out nice for her.
Little pancakes and syrup
A hardboiled egg
We were not going out today so I did not worry about putting lids on anything, I just placed it in the fridge until she was ready to eat.
Do you have any lunch sites or blog posts that you want to share?

So we quickly grabbed 2 turkey sandwiches from the freezer, opened a can of pineapple and grabbed some smart puffs and a cookie for the 2 early lunches when son #2 came down the stairs and said he did not need a lunch today since he was working in the cafeteria. So the second lunch got bumped to my daughter. At least lunch was quick today :)

DH took the chicken salad as a sandwich
