Re: Packed Lunches

Great thread.

Not a recipe but...

If you pack lunchmeat sandwiches, every Friday (or Tuesday...) get deli meats and cheese and break up the monotony of packaged. Great hit!

Re: Packed Lunches

DH gets leftovers or a plain roast beef sandwich w/tator tots, an apple and yogurt I'll be watching this thread though, for ideas.

Re: Packed Lunches

Some tricks that I use to make things go farther
Is I always make my own jellos, pudding, etc and put the in a container we have rather than buying the pre packaged ones.
Or on grocery day I always buy a big thing of grapes or strawberries or peanuts and then I divide them into ziploc baggies for individual servings.
We go through a lot of raisins string cheese and yogurt for lunches to....
Another thing I make is my own trail mix for a little snack.

Re: Packed Lunches

We baked cookies last night and packaged them up in snack sized baggies and froze them. I just need to grab one a day and throw it in ds's lunch bag and it will help keep the sandwich cooler but also thaw enough to eat come lunch time.

What do you put in your trail mix?

Re: Packed Lunches

My kids like cheese sandwiches (whatever bread they like, sharp cheddar cheese, butter & Branston Pickle on bread). For anyone not of recent English heritage, Branston is a jarred tangy pickled veggie spread that is soooooo yummy on cold meats & cheeses. Also, we buy the large containers of yogurt (plain & vanilla) and then have a stash of 4 oz Tupperware containers that I fill w/ yogurt and then they pick what fruit they want added (strawbs, blueberries, raspberries, plain). Peanut butter, banana & honey sandwiches are also a great hit. My mom used to make her sandwiches on frozen bread and by lunchtime the bread was thawed and sandwich wasn't soggy.

Oops, sorry, I realized I double posted a lot of ideas because when I sent this topic to print the first time it only printed out the first page of respones.

Re: Packed Lunches

My dd started pre-k so in her lunch is grapes,almonds,a serving of cheese and milk.Sometimes she will take a peanut butter sandwich but she's not a bread eater.
dh packs his every day-or should I say I pack it...unsweet tea,yougurt,almonds,Kashi granola bar,handful of sun chips,apple,banana, and a sandwich on homemade wheat bread.Of coarse that's for his snacks as well since he is gone usually 12 hours a day
