This has been a huge topic at our house lately, too! We have revamped it with help from a blog called 100 Days of Real Food. My goodness. Lunch is fun again!


"A bottle that's been open a few days"? Clearly we live on different planets. When I make chicken I say "open a bottle, save the first glass for the cook. Then pour half of the rest in with the chicken. Save the dregs for the cook". No leftovers that way. GREG

Different planet, but same solar system. I never cook with something I wouldnt drink myself. Just have to take it easy. Getting up at 5:30-6 a.m. is not easy.


I love this post. Reminded me when I was packing 3 lunches every day - we are all brown baggers in our house. I refused to let my daughter eat cafeteria food and to this day I have no regrets. She is married working with a new baby. She has turned into a wonderful cook and has become adventurous. Take heart if you're a parent of a picky eater.

I know this comment is a little belated, but packing lunch is so dull- it was delightful to read about such a creative dad having the same mental block! Personally, I've found bento boxes (stylized lunchboxes that are very common in Japan) to be a great source of inspiration away from the peanut-butter-and-jelly daily, and even started a little blog of my own in their honor.

Good luck on your continuing brown bag adventure!
