Lunches For The Week

Here are some lunch ideas you can do for you and your family. This week I made lunches for me and my husband.  There was four of each for us.  This is a test trail to see how easy it is to make lunches ahead for us for the work week.


We each got 2 taco salads, as well as 2 each of Buffalo chicken salad.

For the taco salad

2 lb. ground beef (you can sub for turkey)

2 packs of taco seasoning

1 ½ cups water per the taco pack

Cherry tomatoes

Chopped lettuce

1 can black beans

1 can of corn

I cooked the meat until no longer pink and drained any fat off and then added the taco seasoning packs and water and cooked for 20 more minutes.

*note: I put the Lettuce, tomatoes and cheese in a baggie.  So when warming these are not included.*



For the buffalo chicken salad

1 package of chicken tenders

1 cup of hot sauce (your choice)

1 cups of chicken stock

1 can black beans

1 can corn

2 boil in bags rice

I cooked the chicken in the crock pot with the hot sauce and stock for about 3 hours on high, and then I just shredded it.

For assembling each I just layered as I thought was best. The buffalo chicken I put the rice on the bottom and then beans, corn and chicken. Then add the Avocado when ready to eat.
