post your main course ideas here
peanut butter and honey on wheat
pasta with grated cheese
turkey slices (rolled)
Left overs of most anything, especially...
chicken and rice
roasted or grilled chicken
A few years ago I found a good lunchbox sandwich spread in Parents magazine. I don't recall measurements but it is a mixture of peanut butter, honey, sunflower seeds, raisins and shredded carrot.
bagel w/cream cheese was popular with Clara last year
I'll think and come back with more ideas...
hard boiled eggs
This is definitely on my brain today and I had just came up with a list of foods that even my picky Gabe will eat.
So far I have come up with:
egg salad on bread or in wrap
grapes mixed in plain yogurt (Gabe's fav)
homemade leftover chicken tenders
homemade leftover pizza
corn dog muffins (corn muffins with organic hotdog chunks baked inside)
rice balls with homemade sweet and sour for dipping
sushi (for Gavin)
hot dog sushi (basically oganic hotdog with rice wrapped around it) for Gabe
homemade granola with a thermos of milk to pour it into
cheese and crackers
apples and peanut butter
we're going gfcf (for those who haven't seen my posts lol) so heres some ideas I have for this weeks lunchboxes.
The main events will be:
Monday - leftover grilled pork with organic applesauce for dipping
Tuesday - pb and j on gf bread for roman, bologna on wheat for Zoey
Wednesday - tuna in tupperware with crackers
Thursday - hard boiled eggs
Friday - turkey 'lunchables' - I cut the turkey into circles and send with round crackers
thanks for the ideas
We do things like............
sandwiches on wheat (turkey,ham,salami,tuna,chicken salad)
or roll ups with the same meats as above
in the thermos left overs,ramen noodles on occasion, mac n cheese,
Sandi on your pasta do they eat it cold or hot?
so it kind of like an anti pasta salad??
School Lunches - Walking Tacos and Single Cupcake Holders
Hi and Thank you for your ideas.
My little guy will be in first grade this year so he'll be taking lunch for the first time. We are vegetarian. I make the Bento Box ideas for him at home a lot. Just for something fun. I don't have an official Bento Box but do just fine.
This past week I ran our Vacation Bible School here. On Sunday we made walking tacos for the snack, that is what we dubbed them anyway. A bag of nacho chips crushed while in bag, then add lettuce, cheese, salsa, tomato, sour cream if you want. They eat it right out of the bag with a spoon. It was a super hit. I'll be packing a version of it for my son for school.
Cupcakes, I want to send an individual one. I saw a place near me that came up with an idea for a container and today saw another form of it online. However, I have no extra cash to be buying those. Any crafty ways you send a cupcake to make it portable and stay tidy?
Thanks for you ideas on the cupcake thing. :badidea:
Joseph would love corn dog muffins.
Lots of great ideas here.
cereal - I send in a bag,spoon, and a small bowl - they purchase milk to eat it with
pizza roll-ups (pepperoni and mozz rolled in a tortilla), pizza sauce for dipping
almond flour scones (bacon and cheddar, ham and cheese, the occasional chocolate chip)
ham and cheese rolls (or turkey)
