Easy Never Fail Mincemeat Pie Recipe

On holidays my grandmother always made a mincemeat pie for my father and grandfather to enjoy. As a culinary curious little kid, I tried a small slice, and from then and there when given the choice, I fell headfirst into the Mince Pie camp. Many years later a well meaning person dumped a jar of mincemeat pie filling into a pie crust to present me with my favorite holiday pie. I appreciated the gesture. But it didn’t taste the same.

Lunch It Punch It

Lunch It Punch It works so well for them in their lunchroom that they decided to share it with the world!

The concept is simple and free. Print a Lunch It Punch It Card. Pack a lunch, eat it, and mark it on your Lunch It Punch Card. After 10 lunches, you reward yourself with a lunch out. We have reward cards for everything; why not make one for you?

Lunch It Punch It is full of lunch ideas and what to use to pack your lunch so it doesn’t look like you stole your kid’s lunchbox. Seriously, do they even make good-looking lunch bags and holders from non-toxic materials for adults? Everything I see is for elementary school kids. *pout*

What do you do for workday lunches?
