First of all, I need these lunch bags!
I need a constant reminder to "Keep Calm."
I usually take my lunch to school. But, here recently with me spending so many hours at the lawbrary, I am packing a day's worth of meals, snacks, and numerous diet cokes.
I feel like I am packing for summer day camp. Or a second grader who has to stay for the after school program. My little lunch
box bag is filled to the brim.
My dishwasher is nothing but tupperware. Since, I am not home to actually fix meals to even have leftovers, I am left with only a few options for lunch and dinner. Lean cuisines are a must. They get old quick. I love a PB&J and could eat them everyday. And so what if I brought an entire box of Cheez-It Snack Mix to the library.
Then, I have my standard salad - romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, craisins, almond slices, turkey, and a variety of cheeses (velveeta crumbles and/or blue cheese). What about a dressing?...In comes my pickiness. I like ranch but not my salads. I love honey mustard on my salad, but have never found one in a bottle that I love. Thousand Island...goop! And basically any other bottled dressing. My solution...make my "own." Thanks to Good Seasons!
Good Seasons offers a variety of dry dressings that can be added to oil and vinegar to make a great vinaigrette dressing. They can be found in the dressing isle with the powder ranch packs. All you need is one of these...

This little guy has measurement marks for the appropriate vinegar, oil, and water to be added. Give it a little shack and you have a delicious dressing. I like the traditional Italian and Garlic & Herb. I use half the oil listed and add more water for a healthier alternative. It doesn't change the taste at all.
Check out their website, they have some great recipes that are easy to make.
Off to another marathon day at the lawbrary.
Have a lovely day y'all!
