{Today’s Lunchbox} Weekend Lunchbox

You know how much I like weekend lunchboxes.  Here is one from a recent Sunday.  This is just a lunch, no snacks:

  • A red pepper, sliced into three “boats”
  • Steamed collards
  • Guacamole

I packed this lunchbox about an hour before eating it, so the guacamole survived just fine.  That is one advantage of weekend lunchboxes – since they generally get eaten much sooner after being packed – is that I can include items that would ordinarily not last in a regular weekday lunchbox.

As the brevity of this post indicates, I am so so SO happy it is Friday.  My mind is mush, so I do not yet have a plan for the weekend (beyond the usual, ie market on Sunday, two yoga classes, time with friends). 

What do you have planned for the weekend?

My "interesting" plans for the weekend include doing laundry, grocery shopping and hopefully a trip to Barnes & Noble to shop for cookbooks. I love looking through their cookbook section – so many choices.

Love, love fresh red peppers. Crispy and so full of flavor!

Hi Valerie,

What a fantastic concept! I love the fact that you are offering an alternative to the sandwich for lunch, and such tasty and healthy options! I'm going to take a good look around and be inspired, we picnic a lot and avoid eating in restaurants, it's usually disappointing and not made the with the same loving energy.
