Lunch, Dinner, Leftovers, or ALL of the above?

I had a few food related things to post about…so why not just do it all at once? Right?

To start off with I need to start capturing more of our lunches. This will help me record what ideas I have and keep me from overloading my own lunch bag.

One of my lunches: sandwich, veggie sticks, peanut butter and jelly crackers, NutriGrain bar, pretzels, and apples. mommy lunchTwo of Dino’s lunches

sandwich, carrots with ranch dressing, raisins veggie sticks, cheese sticks, fishies, and flavored water. He gets a lunch, morning snack and afternoon snack. They also provide snacks there on occasion and get gets a bottle of water in which they refill as often as needed.

Now I try to eat healthier bread, sometimes I do and other times I give in have the white bread that Daddy and Dino love. Instead of mayo though, Dino and I LOVE hummus on our bread. That’s right…HUMMUS instead of mayo. It’s tastier and healthier.

We had meatballs and pasta I made the night before

  1. This post just made me more hungry then I already am this morning. When is dinner? But seriously, I never thought of using hummus (not a mayo fan and usually use honey mustard), but love the hummus idea and thank you for sharing that!! 🙂

Would love to read your thoughts
