Working mamas

If you pack your lunch, what do you typically pack? I'm SO sick of sandwiches or those stupid little Lean Cuisines that are gone in 2 bites. I bring leftovers when I can, but is there anything you bring in and actually look forward to eating?

  • Hmmm. Nope. Not!~ I end up bringing the same things too.. I did for a little while bring stuff for Tacos.. premade meat and just brought the tortillas and cheese and lettuce etc.

  • I like leftovers usually. You can try to plan for leftovers by being sure to make extra.

    I like salads too.

    I like to mix up my sandwiches and have a flour tortilla roll up or eat it on crackers.

    chicken salad on crackers is good.

  • Usually if I don't pack food I order food from by my job, but if I cook I usually make foods I like so I look forward to eating it like chicken rice and beans, or meatloaf mashed potatoes and veggies, chicken salad, macaroni salad, fettucine alfredo, stuff like that

  • Money for an occasional trip to Wendy's. I'm in the lunch rut too. Sandwiches are boring, salads don't fill me up, hubby eats too much at dinner, so I don't have leftovers very often.....aarrrghhh!

  • Oohh maxsmom, that's a good idea. I just HATE packing a lunch the night before and then getting to work and thinking, OMG Chinese sounds sooo much better than this. And then I end up spending more money instead of saving it. Damn me.
