Back to school lunch
well the little one heads back to school on Monday and I will need to pack a lunch most days. The school lunch is really terrible and she usually won't eat it. Any of you Moms out there in CH land have great school lunch ideas, I always seem to run out of ideas.
Luckily my pre-schooler eats just about anything...I usually include 3 parts to the lunch...
Hummus sandwich on whole wheat bread
Salami sandwich (or turkey or ham) in a wrap
Egg Salad in a wrap
Cream Cheese and Jelly (can't send peanut butter to school)
Leftovers (ravioli, chinese chicken and broccoli with rice, baked ziti with turkey sausage) in a thermos-type of container so that it stays warm
Turkey chili with brown rice
And then I stick in some combination of a gogurt, cherry tomatoes, jello or jello pudding, fruit, cucumbers, sliced red, yellow and orange peppers, graham crackers, veggie chips, applesauce or whatever else I happen to buy that week.
I like the corn on the cob idea!
i'll be packing my kids' lunches in bento boxes this year.
