I have a confession to make.  As much as I love cooking my family fresh, wholesome meals, well… I get in a lunch time rut all the time.

It’s usually in the middle of the day that I find myself the most busy so I reach for quick things to make.  Pb&j, macaroni and cheese, gazpacho soup, salads, tuna, chorizo, fruits, and cheese make the usual lineup.

It gets boring after awhile. I know the kids think so to.

Our homeschool starts this Thursday and we’re adding an extra seat in the mix – I know I will have less time to think about lunch.

This year I want to start preparing my lunches the night before in order to have them ready to go when our school day ends around noon.

Some phenomenal woman that have this lunch thing down are Marla from Family Fresh Cooking, Laura from Momables, and Dara from Cookin’ Canuck.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from these ladies is that lunchtime can be scrumptious and simple.

Most importantly… not boring at all.

    Love this! We also home school and while I’m great at planning supper I’m usually too burned out to then plan lunch. Thanks for the resources!
