#5 potatoes, vegs, & chicken

For dinner the night before, we had grilled potatoes and one of those steamer veggies. Miss C wanted the leftovers for lunch and I mixed in some cut-up grilled chicken. She also wanted cottage cheese. Pineapple and carrot chips and ranch rounds up this lunch.

I've been collecting little plastic containers, thermos bowls, and fun bento-style lunch boxes. The one above is a Dora insulated/thermos bowl I found on clearance at Target. These fun square cups with multi-colored lids I found at Meijer. You know how they hang random stuff at aisles? I think I found these hanging by the juice/pop aisle. I found her Hello Kitty lunchbox at Martin's (regional grocery store) on sale for $5.99 with coupons inside for free bread, $1 off kids' toothbrush, $1 off kids' toothpaste, and $0.75off for yogurt! SCORE!

I don't really care if my husband gets teased about his lunches. I don't think he does either. He rarely eats lunches, so when he was participating in the Crossfit Open last March, he needed to maintain a healthier eating routine, I was a little more giddier than he was to pack his lunches too. I didn't take many pictures of them, since he didn't care much for presentation, but with EasyLunchBoxes, it was easy to arrange the food in different compartments.

Last weekend, he participated in a mud/foam run in Chicago with the some of the athletes at our Crossfit box. It was a 2.5 hour bus ride each way, so he needed to pack lunch and a post-race dinner.  Of course I jumped on that opportunity to pack his lunches too. :)
