I hope everyone is having a great week so far!! I am on day 6 of kindergarten, and each day gets a little bit better! My Dragons are trying so very hard to follow all the rules and routines of the school and classroom, and I'm so proud of them!! Check back on Friday for when I share 5 fun facts from these past two weeks with my Dragons!
Today I am linking up with Blog Hoppin' for their #teacherweek15. Each day this week we have a different topic to blog about, which is really helping me to remember to blog!!
Today's topic is all about Make Ahead Meals!
So this one might be the hardest for me to write about this week. See, I'm not a huge fan of cooking. I would much rather go out and sit down and have someone else cook and clean up after dinner. Most nights I do end up going out to eat, and since it's just me the bill is never high. Plus, every once in a while I can enjoy a 'grown-up drink' with dinner!
Also, since the accident it has been impossible for me to cook. For the first 8 months I wasn't able to move at all, so others had to bring food to me. Now that I'm able to stand up, I am still not able to stand up long enough at the stove i order to cook a meal.
So what does that mean when it comes to getting my lunches together? If I have leftovers from eating out, those are the easiest quick lunches to bring to school. When I don't have any leftovers, I'm all about putting together a lunch quickly so I don't have to be on my feet for too long, since it's still painful to be standing for long periods.
I also make sure to pack my lunch each evening after I get home from work, since this saves me precious minutes in the morning. Plus, I'll have more time to rest afterwards if I get it together in the evening.
It's not very exciting, but here's my go-to lunch!
I'm really digging these cracker chips from Ritz. They come in several different flavors, and they are baked and toasted and not fried. They are salty and crunchy enough to remind you of a chip, but in a healthier variety.
My favorite cracker topping. Not the healthiest choice, and sometimes I do pepper ham, but it's quick and easy and yummy!
One or two of these and that's the entire basis of my daily lunch. I will often treat myself to something sweet, like fruit snacks (yes, I'm a sucker for those!) or a small pack of mini-Oreos. I've always been known to add some baked Cheetos!! Even though they're baked, they taste SO GOOD!!
My lunch isn't very exciting and I can't really help you with any awesome Crock-Pot or freezer-prep meals, but there are some really awesome posts who can help you with those things! Make sure to swing back over to Blog Hoppin to see who else linked up!
