Seven Simple Lunches

Seven Simple Lunches Collage

I made these lunches on days that I wanted to keep it quick and easy. Many of these were for outings with my niece and nephews and I made the lunches from ingredients I happened to have in my house.

Pasta Snow pea Red Pepper lunch

I made this for myself on a day I went raspberry picking with my niece. I made pasta for both of us and prepared them differently. I just came up with this combination as I was prepping the lunches. It was healthy but delicious!

Pita Hummus Lunch

I made this for myself on a day I went raspberry picking with my nephew. I ended up going raspberry picking twice this year because the first time only black raspberries were ripe. I did not take photos before I left the house so this photo was quickly taken at the raspberry farm. They had picnic tables available where we had lunch.

Pasta Ice Cream Pepper Lunch

I made this for my niece on a day that we went raspberry picking. It was fast to use my ice cream cone cutter on bell peppers to decorate this lunch.

Pumpernickel Green

I made this lunch for myself on a day my nephew and I went hiking. I guess that many of my favorite foods happen to be green.

Sandwich Chips Lunch

I was running out of time on a day that my nephew and I went raspberry picking so I made him a sandwich. Since I know that he prefers non-sandwich lunches I gave him a special treat of BBQ potato chips. I try to be the Aunt that gives them fun food.

Raspberry Muffin Lunch

My nephew ate this lunch at home. It was leftovers from a featured ingredient raspberry lunch that I will publish next week. He is always happy to eat a muffin lunch.

Salad Cottage Cheese watermelon lunch

I made this lunch for myself. I had some watermelon leftover and thought it would be fun to put it in a bento lunch.

So although I love to make themed cute food, sometimes I just quickly throw together lunches from ingredients I have in my kitchen. Quick and easy can be attractive and delicious.
