2014 -- 007


Today felt like a day to work with whatever I could find in the fridge. Last night for dinner we had ''Taco Pizza'' which was a crescent roll base with refried beans, meat, rotel, onions, cheese, and olives. It was good, but was definitely a fork sort of food! Luckily, Monkey will have one in her box and once it chilled in the fridge it seemed like it was easier to pick up the next day.

  • Leftover ''Taco Pizza''
  • Side Salad w/ Ranch
  • Apple Slices
  • Cucumber Slices
  • Cheese
  • Organic Chocolate Milk
For me leftovers are one of those fantastic ways to save a little bit of that money that everyone SWORE I would be losing by packing lunches. If you want to pack lunches do not let people talk you out of it by telling you it will ''be more expensive''. It will only be so if you pack all pre-packaged and individual portioned items. If you aren't afraid to pack your kids real food, aren't afraid to portion out things yourself, and seriously take just a few minutes each day to pack. You CAN pack lunches for your kids everyday that are delicious and healthier than what they're getting in the cafeteria (and better tasting haha). 

Happy Packing!
