You know darn well that if you try to ask your Latino parents to buy you some Lunchables for school, the answer will be NO. Instead you’ll get a response like, “¿Si te puedo preparar comida en la casa porque voy a gastar $5 en estas ch*ngaderas?”
So instead of Lunchables, this is what you got for your school lunch…
Thinking of asking your mom to buy you some pepperoni pizza Lunchables? Think again.

She should make a DIY-tutorial on this.
And if you also want to try asking for a fancy, overpriced lunch bag, this is what you get instead:

This mom has some topnotch drawing skills.
Your fancy lunch bags are substituted with paper bags, plastic wrap, aluminum foil, recycled grocery bags, and of course butter containers as tupperware.

You just have to cross your fingers and hope that your mom doesn’t accidentally pack you an actual container with butter, rather than your lunch.
On mornings that you’re running late to school, you can expect to have one of your mom’s quick n’ easy sandwiches for lunch.

And if you’re in a huge rush, then those salchichas won’t even be cooked.
Very quick n’ easy…

Doesn’t get any easier than Spam and Cheez Whiz.
And for a snack, there’s no way your mom is sending you with a greasy bag of chips. She makes sure you have something healthy, natural and organic to eat.

As long as you have that salt shaker, you can eat anything for lunch.
But no matter how different your lunch is from every other student at school, it’s still bomb AF. ?

Bougie Lunchables will never have anything on your mom’s fire homemade meals.

I’ll take pollo con arroz any day.
And as for those who still have a desire for Lunchables, you can go ahead and do exactly what this woman did…
