No Fuss Dippin’ It ‘Lunchables’
It’s that season – back to school. Even for this homeschool mama. Some people don’t realize it, but I often pre-make our family’s lunches for the week to save time. When I don’t have to fuss over the preparation of those lunches, that makes the time saved even better. Time is the one thing I can never get enough of…. sorta like bacon.
Both of these are simply wrap & done.
First, with the ‘pizza dippers’. Simply cheese sticks & salami. You can also use large pieces of pepperoni from the deli – or even ham. You can leave the cheese sticks whole, but I think the meat to cheese ratio is much better when you take a second & cut the cheese in half lengthwise (or even pull them apart, it is string cheese after all) Wrap the salami around the cheese – serve with a dipping cup of pizza sauce.
For the pretzel sticks, it’s just as simple. Wrap some honey ham around half of a pretzel rod, and tuck in your container. Serve with a side of mustard (or anything else you desire).
Now, just add your sides. I use containers from WalMart for packing – About $2.00 for a set of 3. Then, I use muffin liners to divide further. (note:, when packing sauces, if you would like to use a muffin liner – use the foil ones… it will seep through the paper ones)
