Know what I just did? Made a lunch for the husband. It's sitting in the fridge; ready for him to grab before work in the morning. See it there? Right in front of the lemonade? That there's lunch.
The husband recently had a bit of a schedule change at work, and now he's brown bagging it as opposed to dining a la cafeteria. Usually I take lunch-making as an opportunity to show him how much I love him in the middle of the day. Last week, though, I was feeling under the weather, and I neglected my lunch-making duties. He was very understanding, and I just assumed he was thinking outside the bun and eating some fast food for a few days. Once I was back on my A-game, the husband looked at me sheepishly. "Can I tell you a secret?" he asked, shuffling his feet with obvious guilt.
"I didn't eat lunch all week."
He is such a sweetie pie, but making himself lunch isn't one of the husband's strong suits.
So this evening I tried to prepare a few items to make it easier for lunch-making throughout the week. To help keep the husband's arteries unclogged, I sliced up a bunch of carrot and celery sticks. I'll pop a couple in a baggie each day, and voila! Veggies.
Then, I cut up some fruit. It's just not lunch without fruit. And since it's prepped for me, it'll make it easier to feed the husband fresh melon instead of fruit roll-ups. (Are fruit roll-ups part of the food pyramid?)
That's what I did to get ready for lunches this week. How about you? What do you do to make lunch prep easier? Comment below, or share your ideas on our Facebook page.
