From the Publisher
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.
