Brown Bagging It

My lovely husband Josh is starting a new job next week. We're both very excited about it. I want to start making him some nicer lunch stuff to help deter eating out for lunch, starting with something special for his first day. I've already worked up a great snack to keep him away from the vending machine- Peanut Butter Granola with banana chips, sliced almonds and cacao nibs tossed in. So, onto some lunch ideas.

Right now Stephmodo is sharing some beautiful lunch photos from Donna Hay.

Martha Stewart had some great wrap ideas.

Apartment Therapy's The Kitchn offers up some great recipes and ideas for weekday lunches.

Serious Eats has a column dedicated to lunch-time grub.

That's where most of my inspiration has come from. Do you have any suggestions? I think I've figured out his first day lunch menu, but I'll need plenty of ideas past that! Thinking about making something nice for a lunch dessert, but still a bit lost on that. Until after his first day I won't know the breakroom/kitchen situation, so lunch number one has to be ready to go. Here's what I'm thinking for the big day.

-Caprese Sandwich
-Baked Potato Chips
-Carrot sticks
-Apple
-Blueberry crumb bar
EDIT: Decided to go with the Blueberry crumb bars from Smitten Kitchen for dessert.

Thanks for any ideas!

Sounds delish ... I would much rather have that than hit the vending machine!
