Mr. Mousesprinkle packs my lunch, but i usually get sandwiches, natural cheetos, and cookies. Sandwiches can get kind of boring so sometimes I’ll take leftovers to mix it up. I also usually have a mid day snack of organic yogurt and blue berries! Yum 🙂

Does he have access to a hot box or microwave?

I’m borring too….  He gets a turkey sandwich, fruit (usually cuties or grapes), a granola bar, and yogurt.  Sometimes If I made something good for supper and have leftovers her gets those instead of the sandwich.

i pack hubbys lunch every single day

usually its:
1 can of tuna
1 piece of fruit
1 large mixed salad
1 protein bar

i also change it up so instead of tuna he will get sushi or chicken salad or cold cuts. sometimes i drain the tuna and add fresh corn, basil, tomato, pinenuts etc salad and  sometimes i make wraps

his office has a cafeteria and occassionally he will buy there but not often – he realizes how much money he saves this way

lol, this post just inspired a conversation. 

Apparently, Fiance thinks it’s adorable that I would even consider packing his lunch.  I’ll have to get used to the idea (right now it feels kind of mother-ish), but it certainly would save us both a ton of money.  I’m terrible about eating lunch out too- mostly b/c I have no access to fridge/microwave and deli meat skeeves me out. .

If I were to pack, it would be leftovers at least one (if not two) days out of the week.  We always have extra from dinner. 

From there, probably some form of tuna sandwich or something akin to a home-made Hot Pocket.  Hand foods are nice.

We always have granola bar, nutrigrain bars, crackerfuls, fruit snacks, chips, string cheese, or fiber bars in the pantry. I just line everything up and throw them in the lunch box. For sandwich, it just depends on what we bought that week, sometimes I’ll get cajun turkey breast or add pepper jack cheese to spice it up a little but it is never usually too crazy. Also, we have alot of drink mixes which is nice because he can pick what drink mix packet to drink that day. Maybe you can get a few mini candy bars to give him something sweet, or bake brownies? Not sure what he likes. Oooo and depending on if he has access to a microwave we also use Hormel Compleats sometimes…or hot pockets or chunky soup.

I pack my fiance a lot of leftovers, but he has access to a microwave.  You could pack soup in a thermos!  I also cut up my fiance’s apple (i’m dying a little inside admitting this) and put it back together with a rubber band, because he loves apples but hates cutting them up.

@eloping:  

lol!  Just you wait, if I do it consistently for a month, he’ll be doing the same.  I think it’s great that you guys do this… I had no idea it was so common.

I pack my husbands lunch every morning:

We make a big pot of soup every Sunday and i pack a bowl of that in a Pyrex container each day for his “main dish” 

1 apple and an apple slicer

1/3 cup mixed nuts (usually peanuts pistachios and almonds with spicy scorpion pepper seasoning)

3 small cubes of a selection of cheeses (asiago, Gouda, gruyere, English cheddar etc)

And a small love note 🙂 i’ve gotten real creative with these before and labled all of his foods with little sayings like “I’m nuts about you” “you’re the apple of my eye” “have a souper day” “say cheese cuz I love your smile”. But most days it’s just a post it that says I love you on it.

Here’s a challenge for y’all. I’m at school for 13 hours two days a week so I need a lunch I can pack (and snacks) that don’t require being refridgerated. I dont have a microwave, I’d like them to be somewhat healthy, cannot contain any sort of acidic foods (such as tomato or tomato sauce), and they have to still be fine to eat after however many hours of sitting in the trunk of my car…
