I’ve been using my Laptop Lunches lunchbox a lot lately. I really like it so far–the little containers are sturdy and have stood up to being microwaved and run through the dishwasher. I love that it’s purple (my favorite color–and also the color of my phone, wallet, car, and other plastic containers) but it comes it lots of other choices. Here are some of the lunches I’ve made. I use the lunchbox far more often than it looks, but I often eat the same thing for a few days in a row. All the descriptions of what they are are clockwise starting at the top left.
Kraft macaroni and cheese (my super-guilty pleasure), baby carrots, apple slices, the macaroni and cheese powder, and some Thin Mints. By the way, I have perfected the art of reheating Kraft macaroni and cheese, which everyone knows becomes inedible as soon as it cools. You just don’t add anything to it, save it as plain noodles. Then do all the macaroni and cheese steps later.
Baby carrots, refried beans, cheese, salsa, and pineapple. I spread the beans on corn tortillas, sprinkled with cheese, and topped with salsa. This was a really great lunch and I ate it almost every day that week.
What is your favorite lunch?
