I get many requests for lunch menus so I thought I would re-post my make ahead lunch plan.
Two of my kids take their lunch to school every day and EVERY morning I make them. Well now that does not make much sense does it? I make all our dinners at once, why am I making 2 lunches every morning???
I spent 15 minutes and here is what I have ready for the rest of the week.
6 ham & cheese sandwiches
4 PB & J sandwiches
9 baggies of sliced oranges
10 baggies of grapes
10 cheese sticks
10 prepackaged bags of pretzels
Here is how I did it in 15 minutes-
These are foods my kids like and I know they will eat. It took 30 minutes to prep which I feel is so worth it to not have to do it each morning. I know I could have bought most of this already packaged in single serving sizes. I am just a little too frugal for that. :)
Tropical trail mix
Sausage & cheese
PB & J
(The sandwich in the pic is ham & cheese. I had some left over)
apples with caramel dip
This side dish is their favorite!
The fun lunch side this week is strawberries with chocolate dip! YUM! Syrup is less than half the price of the dip found by the fruit. Chocolate is chocolate as far as I am concerned. :)
