Once a week I bring lunch for Annecy and five other kids. The other four days I don’t have to do anything. This was literally life changing after a few years of cutting up fruit to fit in tiny (always gets lost) tupperware and hunting down on-sale string cheese. I just make a normal meal, pack it up and send it along to be heated up and shared by all.
I used to be creative, but then I realized these kids are three so it’s not exactly an audience I need to impress. Lately I have been making the same dish over and over and over…and over again. And they love it. And I love it too.
You basically just slather chicken with miso, butter, honey and rice wine vinegar and bake it. I use boneless thighs, but I’m sure other pollo parts would work. Sometimes I cut back on the butter if I'm not planning on eating it immediately with big piles of rice and a side of veggies.
For summer camp, I have to pack lunch every day. Blah!
