I don’t know when school starts for you, but for me, we are just one week away and if I were the Pinterest Perfect Mom, I would tell you how sad this makes me but that isn’t me and I would never try to pretend to be 🙂 The last few weeks of summer vacation are nothing short of an extreme test of my patience as a momma to six kiddos. They are DONE with each other. I am DONE with their lack of interest in anything that doesn’t revolve around electronics.
Have I mentioned that I believe our teachers should be some of the highest paid professionals out there?
These will last for 4-5 days in the fridge sealed in a container, so make a big batch for the whole week to save even more time! And to answer the question I know you are thinking, no….they do not taste like salt after they are finished soaking 🙂
Need another great lunchbox hack? How about my DIY Re-usable Ice Packs made from inexpensive sponges? They are simple to make and if one gets lost, not a big deal!
A simple way to keep apple slices from turning brown in your lunchbox!
- 4–5 apples, cored and sliced
- 4 C cold water
- 1/2 tsp salt
1. Dissolve the salt into the cold water and stir well. Add the apples and immerse them in the solution. Allow to sit for 5 minutes, then drain away the water. Do not rinse them. Package your apples into individual or one large airtight container then store in the refrigerator up to 5 days.
You can do this on a smaller scale with just one apple as well, just reduce the water and salt in half.
