When it comes to organizing meals and menu planning, well, I fail.
Cooking I can do. Preplanning what to cook, I cannot.
Lunch in our house is whatever I come up with at lunchtime. Dinner is much the same.
So I was a little stressed about the lunchboxes.
How was I going to come up with a healthy, hearty, lunchbox selection every morning?
Would I need a stash of gold coins handy to make a last minute lunch order from the canteen?
How would I go with the snacks? Would I end up resorting to plastic wrapped bars?
More importantly, would the Chook eat my offerings?
But you know, it's not so bad.
So far I've provided enough healthy, hearty food.
I haven't resorted to the canteen.
Snacks have proven to be easy, with not a plastic wrap in sight.
And she eats it... Mostly
(rice, pasta and frittata are off the list. She doesn't like them cold.
I think it's more that she doesn't like to be too different yet. We'll work on that).
So as long as I have fruit in the fridge, wraps or bread in the cupboard
and some yoghurt or cheese or dried fruit or preferably a constant supply of homemade muesli bars on hand, then I'm good to go.
Lunches are easy.
I don't know what I was worried about.
We can even forget about a drink
(and we did, most of last week).
The child sized water bubblers are a blast. So much better than the bottle in the bag.
We remembered today.
We remembered a spoon too. For natural yoghurt mixed with honey and vanilla.
Then there's nectarine for munch 'n crunch.
Egg and lettuce wrap for lunch.
Some yellow bell tomatoes and cucumber slices too.
I'm out of muesli bars...
that's on today's list of somethings I've got to go and do!
