If you’re anything like me, you are EXCITED about back-to-school! Don’t get me wrong, I love having my 3 kids home in the summer – but the craziness of trying to juggle camps, kids at home (ie…keeping them busy and OFF screens), playdates, vacation and work leaves me feeling a bit overwhelmed by the end of August. By Sept, the kids (and I!) are ready to get back to school.
That first week, I am so organized! Kids have new shoes & school supplies and I have a fridge full of easily accessible foods for my 14, 13, & 10-year-old to make their own lunches. This lasts about a week. Maybe 2. By the end of September, my fridge is EMPTY, and my kids are complaining…. what do we have to EAT!!!????
This morning, (no, I am not lying…this ACTUALLY HAPPENED this morning), my 10-year old was desperate for food and I sent him to the freezer to grab a container of soup. He warmed it in the microwave and poured it into his little stainless-steel thermos to bring to school. He was happy – I was happy! A warm healthy lunch in 4 minutes flat.
How do you other busy moms make it through school lunches??? Or meals, for that matter? SOOO challenging to get a healthy meal on the table quickly enough to feed these ravenous trampoline-jumping, baseball-playing, mountain-bike-riding bodies!
I make soup on the weekends and use it mostly for lunches. I freeze them in individual containers and take them to work to microwave every day – and I mean, EVERY day. When life gets hairy, I buy my soup. Yes, that’s right…I am the co-director of a soup enterprise and I buy the soup here. It’s good soup, people!!! It’s a meal on the table for my family of 5 for under $20.00 including soup and some yummy buns to throw in with it. You can’t beat it!
