still going

My lunch packing project is still going.  I am keeping up with it!  So proud of myself.  I have not gotten very adventurous yet, but I am thinking about it.  Mostly I fill the lunches with sandwiches.  I want to try some pasta dishes, I am thinking about french toast sticks.  I did make quesadillas one time, they were awesome!  But haven't repeated it.  I have subscribed to a lunch menu service.  Sounds crazy, but it wasn't too much $$ and I have it for 3 months.  I haven't decided if I want another 3 months.  I haven't gotten on the band wagon with it and followed the weekly menus or anything...but I am reading them and getting ideas.  I need to be a more proactive packer and do more prep the night before.  I am slowly expanding my collection of lunch stuff.  Sandwich punches, lunch boxes and plastic boxes...I love it all.  The storage at my house is limited and this lunch hobby is growing.  I have told myself--no more till next schoolyear.  Honey Buns is packing lunch an average of 3 times a week and I am thinking that next semester his schedule will change to only once or twice a week at the most.  Sweet Pea is packing 3-4 days a week.  I don't think that will be changing.  I told her she has to eat school lunch at least once a week.  Variety is good! 
The weather will be cooling down and soon be soup season.  Don't worry--I already have thermoses :)
