Reno's Lunch: Her Nonna's Rice and Beans, leftover mini pesto and #vegan cheese pizza, grapes, crackers. #planetbox

Grateful for leftovers!

There are some days when I’m packing lunch that I’m thankful for leftovers. Whether they come from my kitchen or someone else’s. Ideally I would do my weeks worth of food shopping on Sunday. Our weekends are so busy that that doesn’t usually happen so Mondays lunches are a bit interesting. Thankfully my Mother-in-law sent home some Rice and Beans Sunday night and I had 1 extra Mini Pesto and Vegan Cheese Pizza left from a few lunches before. The beans made up the main part of the meal. I gave her 1/2 of the mini pizza and saved the other 1/2 for her brother. We rounded out the meal with the never ending supply of grapes that it seems we have for these past 2 weeks and some crackers. She always has a reusable bottle of water and for the past 2 days I’ve been packing a mini apple juice box. She has been complaining about not having enough to drink. Last year she would come home with an almost full bottle of water so at least we are improving on her rehydrating habits at school.

So far every lunch I’ve sent to school has come home completely finished! I’m really excited about that and I’m sure I just jinxed it!

    That looks like a lovely lunch. I’m curious about the packaging. What is that?

      Its a Planet Box! They have 3 different size lunch boxes and we love them. I’ll be writing a post about it in a week or two. They are so worth the price.

    By interesting you mean delicious, right? That mini pizza looks so good! Are you going to share the recipe?
