Dinner is easy, my family thrive on meat and three veg. Breakfast is easy too, cereal and toast, with bacon and eggs on Sunday.
But lunches? Lacking.
Sandwiches are too boring to have everyday, sushi is too complex. Two minute noodles are delicious but not anywhere near healthy enough to be eaten regularly. Baked beans go down well after playschool, but don't count as a complete meal and leave more mess than Krakatoa.
And don't get me started on actual lunch boxes.
This is probably the best one I have ever made. It was yesterday, and it was so good I took a picture. Proud, much?

a carrot, snowpeas, a vegemite and cheese
cruskit sandwich and three tiny teddies.
And not to forget, an apple for the apple slinky machine!
But it's the exception. I am usually heinously uninspired and hopelessly under-stocked with lunchy goodies.
But, of course, no matter how bad I get there is always someone worse. I have seen chocolate milk given instead of water as a daily lunchbox staple, fairy bread as sandwich on a normal day, and a kid given nothing but a box full of cheetos. Oh the humanity! I haven't sunk that low.... yet. Never say never.
Care to share your inspired lunch ideas, to keep me from feeding my poor kids total dross?
