we managed to make time for a trip to disneyland yesterday (the only day in two weeks we both had off) and ate huge baked potatoes. classic for her, barebeque chicken with coleslaw for him.
over the last week, i managed to snap a couple of photos of what our packed meals have been looking like. it was going to be my main focus of this blog and i've really been slacking in that department! i plan on doing a post in the near-ish future about my weekly food prep. it saves so much time and money. these last two weeks, i've been slacking there too, and i notice a difference.
lunch one day for my husband:
from top: pulled pork with roasted cauliflower and broccoli; snap pea crisps; greek yogurt; carrots with dijon ranch or hummus for dipping; pepperoni bites; cheese cubes; kind bar; fruit leather
my packed dinner for school one night:
from top left: leftover barbeque rib meat with pan fried sweet potatoes and cajun seasoning; fruit leather; hummus and cucumbers; and apple slices soaked in pineapple juice (to keep from browning and add some yummy flavor). there is also a small container of fruit dip i didn't end up eating. actually, i don't think i ate the fruit leather either.
there you have it! they're simple meals, but they're healthy and affordable. and mighty tasty, if i do say so myself...
