I've been at the zoo this afternoon and all that exercise and fresh air has me feeling pretty lazy so this is going to be a short one where (hopefully) you do all the work.
Paul and I have an almost daily battle over what to eat for lunch, more specifically what to feed him for lunch. As far as lunch goes, I could really care less. Lately I've just been eating bits and pieces of whatever I've made for Wilder -- the crusts from his grilled cheese, half a bean and cheese quesadilla, etc. I don't feel like lunch has to be a huge meal and honestly, by the time I've fed Wilder, I totally don't feel like making something else for myself anyway. Plus, I'd rather concentrate on making a good dinner. One full meal a day is about my limit when it comes to creativity, energy, and time.
But as you all know, Paul is a man. And that man wants a hearty, filling meal for lunch every day. He will eat a turkey sandwich with all the fixings, tortilla soup occasionally, and, begrudgingly, a couple of PB&J's every now and then but all of those options get old fast and he totally turns his nose up at anything else I suggest. I seriously feel like he wants a restaurant-quality meal for lunch every day and, if he can't get it at home, he is more than happy to get it at one of the many good restaurants downtown on his way to school. The problem is, those good restaurants come with a price and we're trying to minimize that expense.
Sooo... my question to all the wives who read this post is: If your husband is home for lunch, what in the world do you feed him?? I need suggestions for substantial lunchtime meals. If they involve a little work, I don't mind that, but I don't want to feel like I'm making two dinner meals every day. Please help!
