School Menu Inspiration

Sometimes I draw inspiration from the school menu. I know Miss C loves sloppy joes and when the school menu calls for sloppy joes that day, we will make sloppy joes for dinner so we can pack leftovers for lunch the next day. Miss C and I reviewed the menu and so she can pick when she would like to eat school lunch. There were only 4 for the month of September, and I'm sure she will change her mind and will ask for a packed lunch instead. And I'm totally fine with that. :) 

School lunch menu: pepperoni pizza, california blend veg, and blue jello
Miss C had leftover pizza and cinnamon from her dinner at Chili's.
I added carrots, mushrooms (her choice of veggie) and cherry tomatoes
packed in a 2-tier bento box.

School lunch menu:  Smoky links, peas & carrots, sherbet
Miss C loves scrambled eggs with salsa,
with toast, greek yogurt, and watermelon.

Mommy's and Daddy's Lunch:   Grilled pork chops over green beans grilled red potatoes and grapes

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. :)
