Big Lunch News!

A few years ago - and I was SHOCKED to realize that this much time has gone by - right before I got sick, some friends and I started a collaborative blog about school lunches. It was such a fun project and I was really enthusiastic about it but waaah wah waaah, I got sick and the whole thing fell by the wayside.

Lately, though, I realized that it was something I'd like to start up again: I still found myself making 15 annoying lunches a week and the school lunches I saw online had very little in common with them - I don't know about you, but I don't really get my jollies packing elaborate Bento lunches for my kids. So I approached the original authors of the blog and we decided to not only start it up again, but to include more writers in our weekly line-up.

The hilarious Nicole from Girl in a Boy House is going to be writing on Mondays.
Janet - who is funny and astute and thoughtful - will be writing on Tuesdays.
I'll have the Wednesday posts.
And Hannah - the busy, busy mom from Hodgepodge and Strawberries - will be writing the Thursday posts.
Fridays will be saved for guest posts, recipes and links and who knows what else.

I hope that you'll find our posts helpful and fun and that you'll enjoy reading them. See you there!


  1. Who knew I could be so excited for a blog about packing lunches. But since I pack 3 a day (next year, 4) and I don't cut the sandwiches into funny shapes, I am expecting GENIUS from you four. Don't let me down. ;)

    My thing? I occasionally throw in a fortune cookie. They get a kick out of that. I just have to remember to buy them.

  2. SQUEEEEEEEEE! This is so much fun.

  3. I have kept that blog in my reader all these years and was tickled to see an actual new post come up this week! YAY!

  4. No kids at home, but it's a great idea. Have fun!


  5. Seems you are having nice fun, just read some of your posts here.

    Best Wishes,
