Many, Many, Many Lunches!

M is for MANY!  As in 30+ packed lunch ideas.

A few years ago, I started packing lunches for my husband and our teacher/daughter who was back home for awhile.  Peanut butter and jelly was OK on occasion, but I wanted to see how many different ideas I could create.  I wanted to use leftovers and produce as much as possible.

Here's what I came up with:  30 + PACKED LUNCHES. 

I guarantee there will be something you'll want to try.   Don't we all get tired of fixing the same thing over and over?

Leftover roast beef, whatever-you-have pasta salad, celery brooms 
with peanut butter/honey, and grapes


Do you pack a lunch?  If so, what are your favorite ideas?

I pack a lunch for myself and my hubby. I always do it in the evening too. You have some great ideas! We usually use a lot of leftovers.

One of the few things I don't miss since not having kids living at home : )

I pack lunch for me and hubby! We are neither picky but changing things up a bit is always a problem. I can heat up lunch but my husband on the other hand eats on the go. Thanks for the ideas!!! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Okay. You're officially the best wife & mother ever:) You should write a book about these lunch ideas. They're great!

I pack a lunch for my husband most weekdays, so I am always looking for interesting ideas. Maybe you should write a book about this topic? :)

The youngest brings a PBJ every day and I've been bringing a chimichanga and a yogurt every day for the last ten years... are we boring, lol... visiting via the A to Z challenge... :)

Of course I pinned that a long long time ago ;-) Christopher pretty much wants the same thing in his lunch everyday. It's either a piece of cheese rolled between two slices of deli meat or it's a PBJ. I changed up the snacks and fruit so it won't quite be the same lunch everyday.

These are AWESOME! But alas, I'm not going to use any of them, because I only pack lunch for myself, and it's basically whatever I can throw together in five minutes in the morning; don't have the time or energy to get creative. Your family is so lucky that you do! Thanks for sharing!

Pasta salad is a favorite here I am just realizing. I need to stop pretending it is any harder or more expensive than the coldcut route. If I could think of it on Sundays we'd be all set!

I don't pack a lunch, but if I did, my favorite would be roast beef with pepper cheese and horseradish and lettuce on multi-grain gluten-free bread. Celery and radishes. Maybe I'll go make one!

I try to have leftovers for lunch as much as possible. We're good with making sure we have lots of healthy - okay, healthy-ish! - snacks around, like yogurt and cheese sticks and dark chocolate covered expresso beans. :)

I don't mind leftovers but some members of my family will not touch them as if there is something wrong with them

I pack some days, but nothing as good as what you have pictured? Hey would you like to pack for me? lol
