I make K's lunch each day.
I know he could make his own.
I'm no Martha Stewart and I believe in gender equality.
I also like doing little things to make K's life a little easier and he likes me making his lunch so win/ win situation.
The lunches have few requirements- volume, large proportion of rice, grilled fish if possible...
red turnip pickles, grilled eggplants, feijoada, grilled saury and cucumbers and mayo.
Marinated eggplant, frittata, cucumber, tomato stew, saury.
grilled salmon, shiso leaf wrapped miso, floweing okra, soy flavoured fish, starshaped cucumber, pickled cucumber, steamed pumpkin and tomato slices.
Same as the day before with less of everything and some pickled gourd for good measure.
Cheesy potatoes, cucumber, grilled salmon, crab cream croquette, mini tomatoes, pickled gourd.
pickled gourd, cucumber, wiener sausages, grilled salmon, mini tomatoes, dried daikon radish pickles.
omelette, cucumber slices, mini tomatoes, stewed tuna.
'Gengis Khan' braised lamb, tomato, marinated tomatoes, stewed tuna, cucumber slices.
tomato and basil salad, stirfried eggplant and bacon, grilled salmon, pickled gourd.
Not too pretty but not too shabby, right?
Then I helped out a neighbour with some work and she put on lunchboxes for us all (herself and three helpers.) She'd made the same lunch for her son and husband.
That's six lunches in total.
And we started work at 8am.
Anyway, here's the lunch she made for us all:
ouch! Talk about being outdone, huh?
Then Amy got ready for school quickly one morning and asked if she could make Daddy's lunch:
Outdone. Again.... By an EIGHT year old!!!
I get points for consistency though....
