Thank you, Laptop Lunches! You made my day! I practically fell over with joy!
Sadly, that gorgeous purse is not getting carried to school. I think it’s way too conspicuous for me to show up with it after what I did all year. It’s like advertising that I’m Mrs. Q or something! But I am using the bento box, because I can’t just let it sit in a closet. (One day, this year, I will use that purse though…)
So this week I’ve been getting back in the swing of packing. I’m taking pictures of my lunch and my son’s lunch in the morning. I’ll do a Friday lunch wrap-up with photos of our lunches. Mine are boring, but at least his are somewhat interesting since I need to provide some variety for him to keep him interested.
One thing I figured out is that I was giving him too much yogurt. On Monday, I filled up the small container right to the brim with yogurt for myself and I could barely choke it down. A half a container of yogurt is plenty. I haven’t packed in so long that I forgot that you don’t need a lot of yogurt. I like yogurt for something sweet at the end of the lunch. At the store, I buy a large container of coconut milk yogurt and spoon it in a reusable one.
Packing lunch is weird. I forgot what it was like. It’s a pain. But I’m LOVING IT! Don’t get me wrong!
(Disclosure: Laptop lunches contributed a guest blog post last year with a giveaway. They sent me this bag as a gift for completing my school lunch project, not as a product to review and there is no giveaway today. Laptop lunches did not ask me to blog about their gift nor did they pay me any money. Later this month, I will be reviewing a number of lunch products, for adults and for children, from various different companies, some who generously sent me a product to review and other products I bought myself. So stay tuned.)
