Okay this is not a post to flaunt how I prepare our weekly lunches. Everyone has their own way of doing things. A few of you have requested a post on how I make a week of lunches. Sunday is my day to make lunches for the whole entire week. This actually only takes me the max, an hour and half. Not too bad when you don't have to make lunches every. single. day. Also, this helps us to eat and snack healthy throughout the week. If I don't prepare I will go for unhealthy snacks or lunches. I will do my best to post our weekly lunch.
The Kids Lunch
- Mini chocolate chip muffins http://lovetocookagain.blogspot.com/2012/08/chocolate-chip-muffins.html Our kids love this recipe.
I put a package of chicken in the crockpot and pour any marinade over it. Cook between 6-8 hours. Take out and cool.
- Chicken and sautéed vegetables. This week I did peppers, zucchini, squash and onions.
- Trail mix (for Jeremy)
- Apples and peanut butter. I divide peanut butter into separate containers.
- Zone Perfect bars.
Betty Crocker's Banana Bread. http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/banana-bread/51427396-6764-4b0a-a73a-78c683c703d2
The kids love to have some kind of breakfast bread or muffins for breakfast.
The key to this bread is immediately wrap it in foil when it comes out of the oven and place in the freezer. It will make the bread really moist. Also, we love throwing in a package of chocolate chips.
