I rarely pack hot lunches. Getting hot food to stay hot is just too much of a challenge for me, so until each classroom in school gets a microwave oven, almost all of the lunches I pack are going to be some variety of cold sandwich. But for the kids' sake as well as mine, I try to avoid using the square sliced bread each and every day. My favorite variations include bagels, english muffins, tortillas, lavash, pita and nan. I've put together a week's worth of lunch ideas that are anything but, um, square -- hopefully you'll find inspiration and use these lunches as a jumping-point to creating lunches that work for your family!
