more bento lunches.

Tomorrow's lunch includes: Turkey with gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and carrots. Also a salad and a brownie for dessert.

my fridge with all five lunches ready to go in it. I didn't make myself one even tho I probably should have since I will be running errands most of the day, however Zane lost her lunchbox at school last week and I don't currently have another spare. I foresee a trip to daiso in my future. Total prep time for 5 lunches: about 15mins. The turkey was mostly cut up, and stuffing, mashed potatoes, salad, etc are easy to scoop into cups or partitions. Filling the tiny bottles with gravy and chopping up carrots for steaming was the most time consuming task. Piggybacking on dinner leftovers (turkey breast, stuffing, etc) means that most of the lunch packing prep was done during the dinner leftovers cleanup. Planning out a weekly menu on Sunday nights and cooking a big Sunday dinner help a ton with making lunches thru the week easy.
