  • Nope, he likes to pack his own lunch. I just fill up his water bottles and make his coffee.

  • no because DH is in the military in Iraq.
    But if he were home. Then yes, i'd make his lunches.

  • Yes, I do. If I didn't he would eat out or eat really bad food for lunch all the time. I usually do it while I feed the dogs. Occasionally we'll be out of bread or something and have no leftovers, so we'll meet up for lunch that day and I'll grocery shop afterwards.

  • I did for a few years, but I got tired of his forgetting it, or not taking it and saying that he had a business lunch that he hadn't thought to mention, or otherwise not taking it. And then I'd end up throwing food out because I had planned and bought ahead. So I told him I was out of the lunch making business and he was on his own. So he takes a container of yogurt and a piece of fruit.

  • Nope! My hubs likes to pack his own lunch.

  • I work and I still make him lunches on occasion. I do it to show him I appreciate how hard he works...but there are other times he makes it himself. Then we give each other a kiss and off to work we go.

  • i do bc otherwise he'd eat really expensive or really bad foods. He's like a kid when it comes to sugar lol! Also it helps save a lot of money (10-15$ for a full week vs 8-10$ a day for a quick lunch).

  • He takes left overs; sometimes I pack it if there are a lot of different parts.

  • He comes home for lunch and I do generally make him some since I am cooking for myself and the kids. When I am working (I work in a school, so summers off) he makes his own lunch, I just make sure there is something for him to make since I do the shopping.
