Let's do lunch

I have to admit something to everyone. I hate cooking. I have never liked it. If it was up to me I'd eat microwaved hot dogs with canned sauce every night. Not because I LIKE hot dogs and sauce that much, but because I detest cooking that much.  My ex husband did about 90% of the cooking and the 10% I did was all things he taught me how to cook. Seriously! He could walk into a kitchen that I would consider bare and come up with a 4 course meal. I really hope my kids inherited this skill.

Pinterest has become a life saver. I have found so many great recipes that the kids and I love thanks to this site. If you still don't have a pinterest account just send me your email addy and I will send you an invite. I warn you though, its a time waster.

Since school has started I have heard nothing but complaints from my kids about the quality and quantity of school lunches. seriously Obama should be grateful that my kids can't vote because his wife's changes have NOT endeared them to my kiddies. lol That being said I have found myself packing our lunches more and more. Which means I am on pinterest more and more looking for ideas. Because nothing sucks worse than eating the same thing every single day...The girls add unless its eating the crap that they are serving now.

I stumbled across this blog and have spent an hour now just looking around and being inspired. Here is her pinterest board to project lunch box. So far the girls are still wanting to eat the same things over and over again (Emmy a turkey sandwich and Abbey a PB&J) but I'm oping I can break them out of this rut. If for no other reason that I have a serious love of containers.....and these are some CUTE containers. I feel I need to add. I am not getting anything out of giving Bento Lunch Boxes a shout out. I just think they are cool.

  1. I like cooking as long as it's easy. If a recipe has more than 10 ingredients, I just stop reading it. She has some great ideas on that board! I really should learn to pack lunch more often...

    1. me too. I am a big fan of throw it all in a crock pot and come back to it later. If I have to stand over the stove or watch the oven, there is a good chance it will just end up burnt.

  2. Well, you know how I am with cooking, so I'll just say that you impress me with any little attempt that you make at cooking. And it sounds like you might be better at it than you think. :)

    1. I am envious of your different cutting boards. I'd probably never use them the right way...but I still think they are super cute.
