An excerpt from the blog:
Confession #1: I love food. Food that is tasty and fresh, diverse and creative. Don't even ask me to pick my favorite foods. I simply can't decide.
After many years of homeschooling, my two daughters began attending a brick-and-mortar school this year. To my dismay, I was suddenly faced with the agony of PACKING LUNCHES on a daily basis. I had visions of soggy sandwiches and bruised banana halves -- eeeeew!
Confession #2: Boredom and I don't get along very well.
Oh, sure. I asked veteran school-mom friends for advice. I researched recipes on the internet. I just didn't find many ideas that were particularly inspiring. I like a classic PB&J or veggies with ranch dip as much as the next guy ... once in a while. NOT every week.
Confession #3: I can't resist a good challenge.
Now what? Succumb to bland brown-bagging, or reinvent the notion of the packable lunch? I think you can guess the answer. I found myself on a mission to banish lunchbox boredom!
