Portability. Is that even a word? Regardless, it's something I've been aware of the last several days.
This year the girls have decided that they would prefer to pack their lunch instead of eating the hot lunch at school.
Lawman and I were open to that idea as long as it was understood that they would have to help with the preparation and planning. Also, that it would need to happen the night before unless what they were taking needed to be made the morning of (example: peanut butter and jelly made the night before can become soggy).
We added lunch supplies to the school supplies list.
Sunday night I prepared a double-batch of chicken fajitas thinking that they would be easy to pack in the lunches. B2 thought that was a great idea. B3 however, preferred to take a turkey & cheese sandwich.
So, this week I've been 'in tune' with a foods portability. I will say it's required a bit more planning on my part but the results have been good. The girls have willingly helped with preparing their lunches and they seem to have enjoyed them.
Do your kids (or spouse) pack a lunch? What are their favorite items? I'm open for suggestions. Right now we're doing fine but I know my creative juices will hit a brick wall before next summer arrives.
