Contents of Bug’s lunch: Grapes, blueberries, chicken salad, and shells and cheese doctored with sauteed asparagus, onions, hot dogs and tomatoes.
Morning prep time: 4 minutes, using leftovers and store-bought deli items (chicken salad from Costco). The leftover shells and cheese had been in the refrigerator in a microwave-safe container and had a gummy texture, so before packing I added a splash of milk and microwaved it for 20 seconds to bring the texture back to normal.
