School lunch day 4

 

My oldest daughter (now 8!!) revealed to me the other day that she LOVED tuna.  Well, ok then.  I did not know this. So tuna it is. When a child tells me they like a food, I jump at that chance, so tuna has been on my list since school started last week.

My menu plan says that one day a week I do a "lunchable" type thing, on Tuesdays.  Which to me means basically crackers, with some protein and stuff.  So today the protein is tuna. My kids seem to do best when they have plenty of protein, so I try to make the protein the main part of the meal if I can.

And here we go...The first school lunch of the year!

And here we go...The first school lunch of the year!

We had a great summer and I honestly really enjoyed having the time off from packing lunches every single day.  But after that refreshing break I am looking forward to getting back to the daily routines and structure that the school year brings. If you have followed me for a while, you'll know that I'm usually pretty good about posting our lunches on my social media accounts (Facebook and Instagram), but I haven't been as good about actually posting them here on the blog.  So my blogging goal for this year is to do much better about getting these lunches on the blog every day!  I've come up with the format below that I plan to use for sharing all of the lunches - I want to tell you a little bit about my thought process that went into it, what I actually packed, a few extra tips to think about, and what products I used.  If there is more you want to know - please let me know!
