Remember: if you are packing and sending a lunch... don't forget a:
@--;---- love note!!
I have a similar list taped inside my baking cupboard door... when I
can't figure out what to fix, I just look on this list... it sparks my
imagination to come up with a new and different lunch.
Go ahead... Copy it... deleting your dislikes and adding your family
Then tape the list inside your cupboard alongside your family
favourite recipes, favourite pictures and reminders!
It will help you when you are in a quandary as to what to make!
