I've never been one for sandwiches, to be frank. I only like sandwiches if they're really chic - cool sauces, lettuce, tomato, onion, banana peppers, etc. Essentially, Quiznos at home. But it's a lot of work, and frankly, a PAIN to stock all the chic stuff. Plus, my kids somehow inherited my elitist view on sandwiches, and they don't eat 'em. Only peanut butter and grilled cheese - which I can't (or, at least, SHOULDN'T) serve every day.
So I usually go with leftovers. I LOVE leftovers. Problem: my kids won't eat 'em. It's like they SEE me heat stuff in the microwave and automatically turn up their little noses, even if they devoured it the day before. Sometimes I trick them - I'll heat up leftovers in a pot, maybe add a few things here and there, and voila! fresh lunch.
But what if we don't have any leftovers? What THEN? ... I refuse to cook more than one meal a day. Sorry. I'm just not that woman. And what else is there to eat? PBJ, grilled cheese, hot dogs, mac n' cheese, and leftovers. That's pretty much our menu for lunch. Hopefully there aren't any health authorities reading my blog ...
Lately I've taken to making a huge pot of good ole Brazilian beans and freezing small portions, then heating them up when the lunch fairy fails me. I figure - hey, Brazilians eat beans and rice twice a day, every day, right? So if my kids have it three times a week for lunch, no biggie, right? Right?
What do YOU serve for lunch?
