Lunches for Monday

Hello Readers!

I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Both of my children had parties to attend this weekend. One came back with a swollen nose (ball, meet face. face, ball.) and the other with a swollen attitude (why do sleepovers always, always result in bad attitudes? Oh, yeah -- it's the lack of sleep!). And here we are, back at Sunday, getting ready for a new week ahead.

Before I start with the packed lunches, I have a question for you. I've begun Weight Watchers. Is anyone interested in seeing my lunches daily? They aren't packed, but I'd be happy to share them if anyone needs "diet" inspiration. Let me know: Should I post my lunches, or shouldn't I?

The Army Man is taking a not pictured meal tomorrow: whole wheat pasta tossed with olive oil and black pepper, with sauteed spring vegetables and turkey kielbasa, topped with Parmesan cheese; a few strawberries, and a mini muffin.

Bayberry's lunch:

A leaf of lettuce holds a baked potato. On top of the potato is a serving of meat sauce (like you use for a pasta dish) and some shredded mozzarella cheese. She has two mini sweet potato muffins (made from a mix) and a few strawberries and grapes. She's taking water to drink.

Fancy's Lunch:

Nothing fancy about it: peanut butter & banana with a drizzle of honey on a small flour tortilla; two mini muffins, grapes, and halved strawberries. She's taking milk to drink.


  1. Hi,
    I do weight watchers and have really been having success, so I'd be very interested in seeing your meals. New ideas are great, especially since I get bored easy.
    I've really enjoyed how you've inspired me to pretty up my kid's lunches each day :)

  2. I would be interested in your WW meals. I no longer have children, but I would have copied your lunches for my children when they were young. I wish my daughter would do this for my grandchildren. I don't know if the senior would appreciate it though.

  3. I like what you did with Bayberry's potato.

    Post your Weight Watchers meals!

  4. I love your children's post and they inspire me to give as good as I have for my children's lunches! I need some inspiration for myself so yes please post your lunches! Would love to see and be inspired! God Bless your hubby! I was in the Army and have to laugh when you explain some Army terms! It brings back memories!

  5. I'd love to see your WW lunches too! I'm currently 7 months pregnant and have gestational diabetes this time around. I know WW meals are typically lower in carbs, so it would help me out. I've gotten in a rut the past few weeks!

  6. yes post your lunches! I walk home for lunch most days, and always need new ideas :-)

  7. I wanna see your lunches! Ive lost 65lbs so far and need to get rid of 19 more to make goal, SHARE!! SHARE!! SHARE!! Im getting tired of grilled fish and salad!

  8. Okay, I'll start sharing mine with you. :)

  9. Yes definitely post your lunches please!!!! While I'm not doing WW, I am trying to lose weight and lunch is one of the meals that I always struggle with!!!!

  10. I agree i would LOVE to see your lunches
