Cooking Ahead! My Agenda for today.

I have several things that I need to accomplish today. The kids go back to school on Tuesday. I want to have some things frozen for their lunches so we can grab and go.'s a list of some of the things I plan to prepare.

Chili (for Chili or Chili Dogs)
Taco Soup
Refried Bean Burritos
Pinto Beans (for beans and cornbread-My Favorite!)

These will get us through a couple of days for them. Plus they take other things throughout the week from leftovers. That is the one thing that I love about where they go to school. They will heat their food for them.....whatever they take.

So....I'm off to get started.

Anyone have any other ideas for lunches....please feel free to let me know. I welcome them. :0)

Still have to finish up painting in MG's room. Ughhhh.....

Thanks. I do bag up or put in a small container chips, cookies, crackers, carrots, celery, raisins, grapes, various fruits, nuts etc. Last year I did really well in the begining then with working all the time and getting 7 lunches made for every day it was blah by the end of the year!

That is why I'm hoping to make up several different things ahead of time. Just a variety. We love a variety of foods. I'm so glad they heat their food there. :0) Makes it so much easier!
