Well, I’ve been working from home for 6 weeks now and have at least 5 more weeks to go. I suspect even when we get the “All Clear” to return to work, things will be different. And that makes me kind of sad. It’s been a pretty unique time to go through that’s for sure.

Working from home every day hasn’t changed too much how I menu plan. Although now I’m feeding more people lunches – and not having to pick lunches that pack up well in a lunchbox. The “no lunchbox” thing is kind of nice, but I’d be lying if I said the “feeding everyone a real lunch” is my favorite thing.

As I write this, things are starting to look like they’ll be changing. In a couple of weeks, salons can open back up. Restaurants can open back up. All with limitations, of course. I know my kids want to hear that parks can open back up. And all of Omaha is eager for the zoo! But, for now, I’ll still plan on easy meals. And meals that take advantage of what’s in my pantry. And meals that make great leftovers (for lunch, ya know!) If you need lunch ideas, try this list of 35+ lunch ideas for families. If you’re looking for a menu plan WITH a shopping list and only with 5-ingredients (or less), try our newest cookbook and menu plan – ‘Incredibly Easy 5-Ingredient Meal Plan and Cookbook’ available on Amazon!
