Beating the Lunch Box Blues: 12/20/13
Beating the Lunch Box Blues by J.M. Hirsch is a cook book focused on offering alternatives to the typical lunch box lunches. I was intrigued by the premise because I have two school aged children who aren't interested in the typical sandwiches.
The book has three main parts: recipes for dinner that can be repurposed for lunches, lunches for adults, and lunches for children. Each recipe comes with beautiful photographs and suggestions for mix and match items.
The recipes though will work best for people who like to spend their weekends cooking a week's worth of meals. They also will be expected to buy ingredients in bulk and to use a large number of pre-made ingredients. Those on a tight budgets or living in homes with galley kitchens will probably want to pass on this book.
