Have you gotten stuck in a summer lunch rut already? It’s easy to do when your schedule changes and you don’t want to eat the same ham and cheese sandwich every day for lunch.

Captain Create’s time saving tip that can help you spend more time enjoying the summer weather and less time cooking is to make tomorrow’s lunch while you’re making tonights dinner!

Its easy! If you’re having grilled chicken for dinner, make an extra piece for everyone to add to a chicken salad for lunch!

If you’re having spaghetti and meatballs for dinner, cook a few extra noodles to add to a spaghetti noodle pasta salad!
