A week off or a "off" week..

Sometimes things get hectic and lunch becomes self serve so I dont have any pictures but here are some of the things we had over the last week...

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
canned fruit ( pears or pineapple)
fruit leather
granola bars

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!

One of the early birds works today. The other took leftover kielbasa and beans, salad, bread and applesauce.

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 had chili, a twice baked potato from the freezer, sun chips and fruit. We were going to have chili stuffed baked potatoes yesterday but it got bumped until Wednesday. The chili was also from the freezer.


On Monday the early birds took sandwiches,chips, fruit and granola bars

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.

I have not managed to post daily this week. We woke up late Monday so I don't have pictures for that day. It was a run out the door lunch so it was a uncrustable, chips and granola bar day. I'm sure they loved it :)

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.
A funny story about Ramen noodles. When my daughter was in 2nd grade ( she was still attending public school at the time) they had to make a project for Mothers day that started out
"My mother is.....". She wrote "my mother is a great chef because she makes me Ramen noodles" :)
