Stressed in the City

Dear Patty Perfect,

I am a stressed out mom of two who has a new job, a new schedule, and a food blog about healthy eco-friendly lunches for kids with no new entries in nearly three weeks!

Dear Stressed,

Fear not, my fine friend! Inspiration and organization will get you, your family, and your blog back in business in no time. With a good bit of advanced planning, your kids' lunches will once again be the envy of the cafeteria.

Um, ok. I'll let you know how that works out for me.

My first full week at my new job was last week, so I was happy to get through it. Lunches, for all three of us, were less than inspired, and while blogworthy, did not get photographed, documented, or posted in a timely manner. My only noteworthy lunch was leftover lemon rosemary chicken with mixed vegetables over penne that my husband made that was out of this world. The rest of the week was yogurt, a Clif bar, water, and a handful of Teddy Grahams to have with my coffee.

This week my focus is dinner. Apparently my kids need to eat. Apparently this phenomenon called dinner takes place in the evenings and regularly. I'm still figuring that out.

I have a plan, so I am well on my way with dinner, so I am hoping to be back to lunch by next week.

The first week is always the hardest, right? At least maybe you'll have leftovers to pack for lunch this week!
