Nearly every Sunday now, we take part of the day or evening to make food for our lunches for the week. This includes popping popcorn and storing it in baggies to grab for the lunch box. It also means making some kind of salad (maybe a Greek pasta salad or a Quinoa Tex-Mex salad) to scoop into containers with a spoon for lunch. We also wanted to try a 16 Bean Soup to warm up for cold days when a hot thermos of soup would hit the spot.
It’s fun to cook ahead, especially in the winter when it’s so cozy to have a kitchen full of delicious smells and warmth. And it makes the week much more organized and nourishing.
