Clean Little Lunchboxes

For those of you who follow me on Instagram you will know that we are in the midst of kitchen (& house) renovations and even though some of my daily cooking has to be compromised the one thing that can't be is lunch boxes! Whilst I do love cooking and preparing food for my family I do find lunch boxes a chore and I love seeing new ideas. I like them to be healthy but easy.  I usually do them either when I'm preparing dinner the night before or when I preparing breakfast so it is always a busy time. I try to mix it up as much as I can with some simple ideas to fill them up for their afternoons and I thought I would share some of my lunchbox ideas with you.

Pesto Crumb Fish Cakes

I love when a recipe comes together out of leftovers; there is simply nothing that makes a mum happier than a delicious dish that appears out of thin air. This, I'm delighted to say, is exactly how we came to make our Pesto Crumb Fish Cakes this week. We had some leftover mash potato, some leftover pesto breadcrumbs from our Tomato Mozarella & Pesto Chicken and, after popping a couple of extra salmon fillets into cook with the salmon we were having for dinner the night before, all our ingredients (bar a dash of lemon juice and zest) were ready to go!
