I have been procrastinating so long on writing this particular post, which is ironic given that it’s all about being more organised.
Tim has been really busy with work lately and I have been trying to manage meals at our house a bit better.
This usually involves one night at the start of the week, after Josh is in bed, sitting down and planning out all the meals for the week, then making a grocery list.
It’s annoying and a hassle sometimes, but it really has helped me to organise a bit more.
I’ve become so organised in fact, that most nights I will usually even make our lunches for the next day.
This has been aided immensely by the idea of putting salads in mason jars; yet another Pinterest discovery. It says that as long as the dressing and lettuce aren’t touching, the salads will stay fresh for up to a week.
I haven’t yet tried out this ‘stay fresh for a week’ hypothesis, but that’s hardly been necessary, as usually by the time I am done adding the toppings to the salad, I don’t have room for the lettuce and end up putting the lettuce in its own jar.
Either way, it’s pretty nice to have lunch all sorted when I get home. It also doesn’t hurt that they are in these cute mason jars.
So, I thought I’d share a few of my favourite ones, it being such great salad weather here in England.
Here they are in no particular order…
You can see from the picture above, I waited until the morning to slice the avocado to keep it from turning brown.
It sure looked nicer in a bowl then it did in the mason jar though.
You can probably see now why I’ve been putting off writing this post.
There are endless possibilities.
These are just a few of the ones I’ve enjoyed but maybe you all have more ideas you’d like to share?
I’m always looking for some nice, quick lunch ideas, as I mentioned earlier, it being such nice salad weather and all.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to scrape the ice off my windscreen.
