Need a Lunchbox Pick-Me-Up?
By Late Night Plays on January 10, 2012
I've only been making school lunches for our oldest son for a few months now. I'm bored. He's bored (though not bored enough to attempt school provided lunches). We need a pick-me-up, a change-up... a lunchbox revolution, which is exactly what Louise at Late Night Plays offered in a recent post on the same topic. She provided other inspiration and shows where she is in her own lunchbox revolution. How do you keep the boredom out of lunches?
Here's what inspired her to change things up:
Every morning, three yawning children, three yawning lunch boxes, and one yawning mom.
I was bored, bored, bored. And I wasn't alone; those little pots were coming home with food in them more often than not.
And then a happenstance glimpse of another child's lunch box changed everything.
"What is that?" I asked my son's classmate.
"An oatmeal flax muffin," she responded.
"And who made it?" I prodded.
"My mom did. She makes everything in my lunch."
And it wasn't just the muffin (though it was outfitted in a delightful pink cupcake liner). Everything in that child's lunch box was simply adorable. I was smitten. I wanted to take her lunch and have it for my own. I wanted to make a lunch just like it.
