Everyone loves a sandwich. Right? I mean, is there anything not to love? I want to give you a bit of background. When I was in high school I was given a ham sandwich every day. I think I took a piece of fruit with it. I definitely took a juice popper. Maybe some tiny teddies. I didn’t eat that sandwich. It got binned. Every. Single time.
I didn’t like the sandwich. In fact even now, a sandwich has to be pretty special for me to want it. I’d prefer to eat nothing than eat a ham sandwich. I’d get all excited when I got leftover roast chicken in a sandwich, and I’d eat that. But never the ham sandwich. I would sit through the second half of the day with my belly rumbling, counting down the seconds until I could dash home…and eat something!
So…it doesn’t come as a surprise to me that Master 3 (today!) doesn’t love a sandwich. And I’ve had a lot of problems adjusting my lunchboxes to work around it. But I shouldn’t, should I? Because I wouldn’t be enthusiastic about a sandwich.
Are you getting half-eaten sandwiches back at the end of the day? Are you thinking it’s because they don’t feel hungry? Maybe it’s time to ditch the sandwich. In fact, a lot of the options that I make for the kids are better than a sandwich- why? Because they are freezable! And I can just pull them out the night before to defrost in the lunchbox. Which means….lunch sorted in half the time.
So here’s some bake NOW, be prepared for the upcoming weeks of the challenge sandwich replacers:
Tortillas (which I use as flatbreads in lunches and cheeky Master 3 will eat!)
And tomorrow, I’ll be sharing a new recipe with you for Micro Quiches that freeze well and are so easy to make the kids can do it for you.
