March menu - lunch

As promised, here is this month's lunch menu. I counted one day eating out because I think I will be having a girl day celebrating my Mom's Birthday that day, and Alif likes to order pizza or something when it's just he and the kids.

Some days I plan lunch around the previous night's leftovers. For example, tonight we're having chili and there won't be enough left over for a full meal, but tomorrow we'll have a scoop of chili over some brown rice and that will be a nice lunch.

Also, I usually will add in whatever fruits & veggies we get from our CSA box and at the grocery store. When you see lunch looking breakfast-ey, it's usually on a Sunday. We give the kids a little snack before church and eat a big brunch when we get home.

chili & brown rice
taco salad
pasta w/marinara, tomatoes, basil, balsamic vinegar
egg sandwiches, fruit
banana splits (banana, yogurt, fruit, cereal)
tomato soup, grilled cheese
