A week's worth of homeschool lunches

I recently had someone ask me to write a short series on how to make home education affordable. As I work on composing that, it has been a while since I've shared our weekly glance at some simple, at-home lunch combinations. One aspect of our homeschool journey that is a huge benefit is food. Since we're at home, our lunch menus are much more affordable and nutritious than if we had to brown-paper bag it every day--not to mention, some schools trying to ban homemade lunches in lieu of non-whole-food government lunch programs. We feel blessed to enjoy simple meals at home during the day. Yes, some weeks we fall back on left-over mac and cheese, or pb&j, but those days thankfully aren't the norm. For more of our weekly lunch recaps and ideas, click the lunch link at the bottom of this post.
