Quick Croissant Bento Lunch

Always time for a quick lunch, especially when the alternatives aren't that great!

My girl loves certain soup days at her college and will definitely partake in those, but on the other days, she needs to bring a lunch, so quick favorite it is!

How to Make a Thanksgiving Turkey Shaped Sandwich

One of our pre-Thanksgiving week traditions is turkey-shaped sandwiches in our lunches and they are super easy to make!

Unlike many cute lunches, these sandwiches only require items you likely already have in your kitchen--a good sharp knife is key.  The only potential shopping life item is sugar eyes and, since you can use those on so many cute food ideas, they are worth buying a package.

Panda Themed Bento Lunch

Even if I don't always have the time for super cute lunches, a few add ons go a long way.

And everyone in my house loves pandas, so we've got plenty of panda accents for bento lunches.

Croissant Sandwich Bento Lunch

Some days are busier, some days are not.

The less interesting lunches stem from those busy days, but at least I know they are eating properly.  I miss the days where we definitely had time to do cute, fun lunches, as opposed to the "How much food means he won't be starving at 3pm and can I get this made before we all fall asleep?"  This lunch?  It was one of those busier days.

Leftovers to Lunches Meatball Subs

I still loves the option of leftovers to lunches, especially when feeding a very hungry teen boy.

Depending on what we have for dinner, I sometimes hide the leftovers, just because I know it's needed for a lunch later in the week.  That is how I was able to make two meatball sub sandwiches.

Quick Croissant Bento Lunch

How many croissant sandwiches does it take to fill a teenage boy?

Right now, the answer seems to be three if they are on the smaller croissants and you can cram them into the lunchbox!

Taco Muffin Bento Lunch

The joys of feeding a teenage boy!

How much food will it take for him not to come home starving to death by 3:30 pm?  That is the question of most days.  I have taken to trying to up the amount of protein, plus sending lots of extra snacks that aren't perishable.
