Déjeuners of the Week

This week I'm planning on having Salads, I've done a couple of weeks of Chicken and a week of Prawns but I think that this week would be rather nice with lots of added vegetables in the salad... although I have no idea how that is going to work.

Saturday - Picnic

We're out at Whipsnade Zoo today, so we're having a picnic. The great thing about this is that we have sandwiches, a few sausages, crisps, fruit, some home made cakes and even a salad! Now if we can all keep our fingers crossed for Sun instead of the rain that is forecasted it will all be good!

Sunday - Meatball Subs

For some reason I've had a bit of a meatball craving, so I've decided to do meatball subs for everyone, although I'm not going to do a footlong one as I once had one from Subway and nearly died eating it! I'm out for most of the morning with Tops at Church, so I'm hoping that if I put the meatballs in my slow cooker that by the time I'm home they'll be ready.

Monday - Meatless Monday - Bagels

The lunch for the Children today is a Cream Cheese Bagel. I'm hoping that Big Boy's aversion to cheese at the moment doesn't extend to things like Dairylea!

Tuesday - Chicken and Sweetcorn Pittas

I'm hoping that the pittas today with a touch of sweetcorn will help both the children to have an extra portion of vegetable without them noticing, but also will allow them to have a bit of variety from the usual Chicken Wrap on a Tuesday.

Wednesday - Pizza Wraps

I think that the Children like these as much as I do. They are so simple and fun to make that they often help me, and I think that is a great way to get ready for the day when they will be making pack lunches for themselves or possibly their own children.

Thursday - Hot Dogs

I was looking through some of the lunches that I have done for the children over the last two years and the Hot Dog Rolls jumped out at me as something we hadn't had for a while. I might be using proper sausages instead of Hot Dogs though, as I do love the 100% Beef Sausages that we found a while back.

Friday - Top Ender's Friday Lunch and Big Boy's Too!

Top Ender's Friday Lunch And Big Boy's Too!

According to the wonderful calender my SMIL made for me for Christmas, today is USA Escargot Day. I'm not saying a single thing about how she would know such a thing as that, but I will say that it has helped with today's theme!
