Sticky Hands: Stuck In A Lunch Rut

Sticky Hands: Stuck In A Lunch Rut

The menu in our home has become rather boring, sadly.

Every week, the kids and I eat the same stuff for lunch, and our family eats the same old stuff for dinner. I spent a lot of time over the Summer looking up all kinds of fun lunch and dinner ideas, but nothing seems to really work for our family. Well, that and I’m usually so rushed to get the grocery list together that I say “I’ll get that next time” every single time.

Lunch is a special time to me. A time that my kids are all in one spot and we get to talk about how our day is going so far. I’d really rather not use this time to load them up with starches and boring food, but yeah. That’s what I do. Sandwiches, macaroni & cheese, chicken nuggets & fries, etc. Add in the fact that I homeschool my 3 1/2 year old, constantly chasing after my 2 year old, and have a 3 month old with reflux I can’t really take the time for a lot of prep.

So, with this I’m going to challenge myself to find more fun, simple, make ahead meals that are nutritious. I may look more into “Muffin Tin Meals”. We’ll see. Anyone have any favorites or suggestions? Post them! Help a Mommy out!
