Welcome to Menu Plan Monday! Did you know eating dinner at home just twice a week will save you OVER $2,000 a year…JUST two times a week! Imagine if you plan more than that! Every Monday I usually write all my recipes and dinners that I’m planning to eat every week. I’ve done ALL the work for you, just check what’s for dinner, print and go!
This week I’m tackling school lunches! I can almost hear your sigh of relief. This year two of my kids are in school and making school lunch has become one of those chores I put off as long as possible…pretty much right before the kids walk out the door. It’s not good.
It took so much to get dinner prepped, and NOW you’re telling me I have to plan lunch too! My husband and I both have felt the stress in the morning; getting kids dressed, fed, teeth brushed, and now getting TWO lunches prepped and set.
So I did what any mom would, I turned to twitter to solve all my problems.
Thanks to a quick search on twitter I found MOMables! Laura Fuentes is the MOM behind MOMables. Laura was tired of feeding her kids pre-packaged, processed foods, and knew there could be a better way, even for her super-picky eaters. MOMables is focused on making uncomplicated, wholesome, fresh food.
MOMables is a school lunch menu subscription service. YES, just like dinner, except lunch! They create a 5 day a week menu, complete with shopping list, recipe and…this is something I’ve NEVER seen..PICTURES! So, you can make it look as amazing as it tastes, and we all know presentation is SO important for kids!
I am no artiste, but this was my first attempt at a MOMables lunch and my kids loved it! What I really love about MOMables, the recipes are simple, have slight twists and really, I don’t have to think about one more thing!
I truly feel like Super MOM now, because the kids are getting cool, delicious lunches. I know they are going over well, because the lunchboxes are coming back *almost* empty!
