Sunday Post (17) / In My Mailbox (21)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.


So I’m spending the weekend visiting my best friend who I haven’t seen in 3 months (we live it different cities)! And we’re planning on eating a lot haha; which is slightly counterproductive to my new running regiment since I’ve signed up to the 5K Dirty Donkey Mud Run and need to get into some sort of healthy shape by mid-July. In other news, I finally got the first of (??) Books and Munchies post up! Yay. Hope everyone had a nice weekend!

In My Mailbox 2

In My Mailbox post! Originally hosted by The Story Siren & now hosted by The Mod Podge Bookshelf, In My Mailbox is a chance to showcase new books, ones checked out from the library, bought, won or received for review.

Just a cookbook this week because I’m always looking for fun lunch ideas!


Beating the Lunch Box Blues(01) Beating the Lunch Box Blues: Fresh Ideas for Lunches on the Go! by J.M. Hirsch

Longing for more than yet another limp salad? Tired of tussling with the kids over junk food lunch kits? Sounds like you’ve got the lunch box blues. J. M. Hirsch has the fix.

But it isn’t a cookbook. Because when it comes to lunch, nobody has time to break out a recipe to bang out a brown bag special. Busy people need lunch ideas. Lots of them. And those ideas need to be healthy, fast, easy, affordable, and delicious.

That’s what Beating the Lunch Box Blues is—an idea book to inspire anyone daunted by the daily ordeal of packing lunch. Jammed with nearly 200 photos and more than 500 tips and meals, this book is designed to save families time, money, and their sanity.

Whether you want to jazz up a grilled cheese, turn leftover steak into a DIY taco kit, or make pizza “sushi,” Hirsch has it covered. And because the best lunches often are built from the leftovers of great suppers, he has also included 30 fast and flavorful dinner recipes designed to make enough for tomorrow, too. Crazy good stuff like short ribs braised in a Rosemary-Port Sauce, Hoisin-Glazed Meatloaf, and kid-friendly classics such as Turkey Sloppy Joes and American Chop Suey.

With ideas this easy and this delicious, there’s no reason to let the lunch box blues get you down
