    Great selection of back to school ideas, and many are also great for adult lunches (the honey chicken meatballs are calling my name). Our kids are grown, but I know they would have loved the pizza muffins.

      Thanks Lara!!! I purposely added things that us adults can enjoy as well, because who likes to make separate lunches?! 🙂

    • oliveblogger says:

      Thank you!! It’s always hard finding new and yummy foods that everyone will love, but I’m sure even the picky eaters will chow down on these!
