Summer is here and that means hungry kids at home all day. To keep the junk food snacking and "there is nothing to eat" whining to a minimum, I make ahead lunches in the summer too.
Here are some ideas. You may need to tweak them to your tastes.
Mini Ham & Cheese Bagel Sandwiches
Assemble sandwiches assembly line style.
Pack them in a container with lid.
Turkey, cheese & lettuce whole wheat tortilla roll ups
(use pb&j, ham & cheese, turkey & cheese or anything you like)
Sorry, no pic of assembly. I was hungry and eating was distracting the picture taking. ;)
Baked Ham & Cheese Cornbread Muffins
2 boxes Jiffy Corn Muffin mix
2/3 C. milk
several slices of deli slice ham or cubed ham
1 C. shredded cheese of choice (I used cheddar/jack mix)
Use an ice cream scoop to scoop into your sprayed muffin tin.
Bake according to muffin directions.
The muffins are also a good breakfast. Just warm in the microwave for 30 seconds.
I will also make BBQ meatballs in the slow cooker. Just toss them in the slow cooker in the morning with a bottle of BBQ sauce. Cook on high for 3-4 hours.
