After two months in first grade, my daughter was as tired of eating sandwiches as I was of making them. Tuna fish, egg, ham, peanut butter. Day after day. How boring can it get? Even pickles couldn't lift our spirits.
"Pack a hot meal in a thermos," said grandma. But the thermos came back almost full. My daughter only has 15 minutes for lunch. She can take her sandwich outside in the playground if she wishes, but dragging a bowl of spaghetti isn't an option.
