No more boring lunches
My youngest daughter has a new job. She is packing my lunch 2-3 times a week. This will add some money to her monthly allowance. It also helps me to not spend as much money at work in the cafeteria. But I didn't bank on the food that she would pack. I buy certain things to make it easy for her (and also so I'm sure at least I will LIKE my lunches). But I've been happily surprised by her inventiveness. She packs both breakfast and lunch. It is enough to laugh out loud sometimes. Yogurt, breakfast bars, steam-able lunches, cookies, fruit, and sometimes the best thing? A note. Much like the notes I used to tuck into her school lunches. Short little declarations of love and happiness. The combinations are not always what I would have selected, but the notes? Best part of all.
