On Sundays, We Prep.
Simple as that.
For all of my adult life so far, I've been a "prepper." Sure, co-workers used to poke fun at the size of my lunch box, but I never went hungry when I couldn't get out of the classroom for lunch, and always had a back up plan for those last-minute, after school meetings.
Now, you would think with staying at home, I would let prep go by the wayside, but what I've learned is that -- if you fail to plan, you are planning to fail (Benjamin Franklin)... especially with a toddler (and random pregnancy cravings)!
No, my prep isn't as in-depth as it used to be, but there are still some things I prep every week, and that includes breakfasts and lunches for Frank, at least 5-7 different dinner ideas, and a shopping list!
Last week, when I shared this photo (below) of what I had prepared, I received lots of questions as to what was inside those little containers! So, I thought I'd share!
Friday night we really wanted to go for takeout, but luckily, some quick, out-of-the box thinking led us to try something "new!" So happy we did because this was DELICIOUS! Frank even claimed the leftovers as his for lunch the next day!
So, how'd we make it?!
