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.

Chef Salad Bento Lunch

Always a favorite for my girl--a big salad in lieu of sandwiches or other main courses for lunch.

We don't do anything special for these, each one is a bit different based on what is in the fridge, but I never have any complaints.

Mini Quesadilla Bento Lunch

A little bit of fun for my girl last week, since we still had some mini tortillas in the freezer.

What could be better than using mini tortillas to make mini quesadillas?

Extra Simple Sandwich Bento Lunch

I'm still having fun trying to figure out how much food the boy might need for a day.

Generally speaking, I make one lunch, then add in plenty of separate snacks and things for him to enjoy as he goes about his day.  Long ago, I taught both kids about eating perishable items first, so we don't have any food waste issues.  If food comes home (unlikely), it's shelf stable items.
