Every Saturday I post about our main meals for the week, but what I haven't been blogging about are the packed lunches that I make for Top Ender, Big Boy and I. When I was posting the pictures of the lunches I was making for Tops and her special Friday Lunches there were some who wanted me to make them a lunch box up too, so I thought that this might help everyone get a few new ideas and also help me keep track of what Tops, Big Boy and I are eating for lunch. I don't make lunch for Daddy (unless I'm making a rice dish) as he keeps bread and sandwich fillings at work and I will only say what the main part of the meal will be, and not include the fruit or the drink or the sweet treat, but I will try to remember to tweet or post a photo on Facebook so you can see what else is included!
Monday - Shredded Chicken and Salad Wrap
Monday tends to be a Chicken based meal as I keep some of the Chicken from the Roast the day before. Tops really loves Chicken Skin, so it won't be as healthy as it sounds for her, but I figure she is a growing girl and she deserves a treat come Monday lunchtime. Tops doesn't like Salad Cream or Mayonnaise, but I do add a very little amount to her wrap, just to stop the filling becoming dry. For BB and I we tend to have a bit more Salad Cream or Mayonnaise with the chicken breast all mixed up together as we like the taste!
I find that buying wraps once a month and freezing them (with a bit of greaseproof paper in between the wraps) means that there isn't any waste with wraps going off, and also makes it easier to get the right amount out to defrost as they aren't all stuck together.
Tuesday - Cheese Pita with Grated Carrot
I cut the Pita breads in half after toasting to make two pockets and have to remember to not over stuff them as Top Ender always moans that I put in too much. I can't help it, I like to know she has a good lunch ahead of her!
Wednesday - Ham and Cucumber Sandwich
Tops and BB are both white bread fans and I'm a Wholemeal bread fan so we normally go with the loaves that mix the two, but this week are are trying the new Hovis Premium British Farmers Loaf so we will either have a White loaf or a Wholemeal loaf. Maybe we should have one slice of each?!
