2 Years & 26 days and Tom's lunches

Since Tom started at his current job (almost 15 years ago!), he has taken his lunch. Before we knew that they had a microwave, he took sandwiches for months. Once we knew that they had a microwave, that opened up lots of new possibilities. Recently, I decided to get more organized with his lunches and posted a note on the freezer. On the list, I put whatever there is in the freezer for lunches and it gets marked off when he takes it. That way, he knows what's up there and I know if I need to add more. Since I've only got 2-3 kids for lunch most days right now, when I fix something for the kids that I think Tom will like, I fix him a plate and stick it in the freezer. When we have a supper with leftovers, I do the same thing. So far it's been working great and is saving us time and $'s! Always a great combination.

That's a great idea! I am lucky enough John comes home to eat most days.

Lucky you. Hubby has to eat out there on the road. When he can hit a Walmart, he can eat pretty cheap. However not all Walmarts have truck parking. Truck stops are spendy!!!! I do try to send him canned goods as much as possible, but being diabetic I try to limit that to veggies only now.

Mandy, that is nice that John gets to come home and eat most days. I wish Tom could. Mary, that would stink. I bet he gets tired of eating out.
