  • my BF is a grown man & is physically capable of doing it himself. However, I love him, appreciate all he does for us, & like to let him know how much I care buy doing simple things like packing his lunch. Its not a matter of whether or not he CAN do it, it is simply that he DESERVES to know how much I care.

  • Mine works mostly evenings, so he gets whatever we had had for dinner the night before. If I didn't do this, he'd never eat properly. When he works days, he packs his own lunch.

  • Yeah my husband has 2 hands and can pack his own but i feel as long as i'm the SAHM it is my job to make sure he has food he likes while he works his butt off building houses to support this family....with that said I do have to say it is a hard job because he won't eat sandwiches.
    so here is the list of foods that go into his lunchpail on any given day.
    Hardboiled eggs
    tuna salad spread with crackers like club or ritz
    summer sausage slices with cheddar slices and crackers
    cold mac-n-cheese with leftover brats or hotdogs
    chicken nuggets or any type of chicken with boiled potatoes left whole
    tuna pasta salad
    chicken bacon ranch pasta salad
    slices of roast beef or ham from the deli spread w/cream cheese then roll up
    muffins,banana bread,chips,candy bars,nuts, snack cakes
    leftover pizza, fruit cups, pudding cups
    cottage cheese with tomato wedges
    fried eggs on toast with mayo, it's the closet to a sandwich he wil
