Lunches (W/C 20/04)

We're looking forward to lunches this week, as I've promised a few special treats for Top Ender and Big Boy, although if my disaster with the Pizza Muffins last week are anything to go by maybe I shouldn't have promised!

Saturday - Cheese Toasties


We love cheese toasties and they are an easy lunch to have on a Saturday. I'm going to add a bit of Onion and Tomato to the sandwiches so that they count as a portion of veg, but I'm going to need to make sure to remind everyone that the filling is HOT.

Sunday - Cheese Steak Rolls


I really liked the Cheese Steak Rolls that we had a few weeks back and so I've decided that we're going to have them again today. Daddy won't mind as long as I use good cheese and give him a good size serving. The children won't have as much onion and mushroom as Daddy and I as they don't like it, but there will be plenty of fresh fruit available as pudding.

Monday - Chicken Wraps


I'm pretty sure that this is the lunch the children look forward to most because they never leave a crumb in their lunch boxes. I'm still slowly teaching the children how to eat Salad and I find that this wrap is always a good way because they don't see what is hidden inside... although I have discovered that Top Ender is a Cherry Tomato fan as long as she doesn't know that is what she is eating.

Tuesday - Veggie Sushi


As we didn't have a Meatless Monday (as Big Boy got to choose dinner) we're having it on Tuesday this week. For lunch today, I've planned Veggie Sushi Sandwich wraps.

Wednesday - Ham Pasta Salad


Big Boy decided last week half way through his lunch of Couscous that he didn't like Couscous and that if I was going to feed him pasta it should be the normal sized stuff thank you very much. So that's what he and Top Ender have today. I'm partnering it with a very low carb pudding as the pasta is quite high in carbs unsurprisingly.

Thursday - Egg Pitta


I think that egg is an underrated sandwich filling and with the addition of a little chopped tomato or cress (which Big Boy is growing at School at the moment) I think that it has the ability to look as good as it tastes.

Friday - Top Ender's Friday Lunch

It's National Pretzel Day. Yeah, I didn't know that either. Anyway, today's lunch will contain pretzels and will have an American theme to it (Pretzels are American right?) and will also be seriously cute!

As a side note, I always use My Supermarket when writing up my shopping list as it means I can compare how much my shopping costs in different supermarkets without having to go to each individual website AND if I wanted to I could also order online and get cashback on some items. James Foord sent me an email (and no doubt 100's of other regular users of the site) during the week promising that if I recommend someone to My Supermarket and they do a shop then as long as I email him my email address and that of the friend I recommended that we'll both get £10. I don't want Mr Foord's money, but I do want to let you all know about the service they offer as it regularly saves me £20+ a week and I think that's far better than a one time offer of £10.
