10 Easy Make Ahead Cold Lunches That Aren’t Boring

10 Easy Make Ahead Cold Lunches That Aren’t Boring

Inside:  With the right recipes for make ahead cold lunches, you’ll save a ton of cash without using up too much of your time. These recipes are perfect!

You hand the cashier your debit card and get that familiar twinge of guilt.  Yeah, you know you shouldn’t be buying lunch every day.  Someone even tried to convince you to do the math and see how much money you’re spending on lunches every year.  (Like you need even more guilt!)

It all sounds good, in theory.  The problem is that getting lunch together every day is hard!  You have to find the time to pack something.  And frankly, you’re tired of the sandwich routine.

As someone who would “friend” the snooze button if it had a Facebook profile… I get it.  My mornings are always rushed, and getting lunch together for the kids and Hubby is not something I have the time (or brain power) to do.  But in our #yearofno, splurging on bought lunches isn’t on our approved list.

30 Last Minute Dinners You Can Throw Together Right Now

Inside: Last minute dinner ideas can save you from another night of pizza deliveries. Get recipes that use ingredients you probably have on hand!

At least once a week around here, there comes a night when dinner time sneaks up on me.  I’ll look at the clock, wonder what happened to my day, and realize that I’d better get something that looks like dinner put on the table!

Since our days of ordering pizza on the fly are over, it’s good to have a list of foods you can usually toss together with just a little effort using things you have on hand.  I’m not saying this list will cut it if your pantry is down to nothing but a jar of pimentos and a bottle of hot sauce!  (If that’s you, head over to learn more about grocery services like Kroger Clicklist instead.  Trust me, you need this in your life!)

But if it’s a run of the mill evening and you’re too tired to create a recipe based on what you’ve got, don’t worry.  It’s as simple as scrolling through this list of delicious recipes here!

Over 40 Of The Best Easy Meals for Large Families

Over 40 Of The Best Easy Meals for Large Families

Inside: Tons of tried and true easy meals for large families.  Make meal time less of a chore!

Waaaaay back in the day, I was a young girl in 4-H.  My goal was to take every single cooking project.  I did well enough to compete at the state level more than once, and even won an “Outstanding of the Day” award there for my bread.  Which I probably work into more conversations than I should.

To this day I maintain that I learned more usable life skills in 4-H than I did from my school.  Which may or may not be true, I guess.  After all, I’m using the writing abilities I got from school right now.

Anyway, I have always enjoyed cooking and baking.  But those competitions are a lot different from creating a meal night after night.  Especially when you’re cooking for a large family.
