Pocket Sammies and More

Hello there all! I trust you all had a great weekend. It didn't last long enough for me. Mondays are the days I just want to crawl back under the covers. Oh well can't do that. Too much to do. Today was another Meatless Monday. I try to give the kiddos a meat free lunch on Mondays. We are not vegetarian or vegans here but I think it is a nice change to have a meat free meal. I do it for lunch because my hubby would never stand for dinner this way. He is a meat and potatoes kind of guy. So here is our meat free lunch!
 The girls all had little pocket sammies. One had peanut butter the other two had hazelnut spread. To make the sammie I spread a piece of bread with the nut butter, folded it over then used a big cookie cutter to press the sammie together and cut. The two younger girls had sweet peppers, sugar snap peas, celery, carrots and grapes. The oldest girl had sweet peppers and sugar snap peas. She also had grapes. They also had homemade cheese crackers and homemade pumpkin bread doughnut holes. I used pumpkin bread mix to make the doughnut holes and baked them in my cake pop pan.
The boy took peanut butter pretzel sandwiches, two small clementine oranges, grapes, homemade graham crackers, and pumpkin doughnut holes.
Thanks for stopping by and check out the rest of the post for more lunches.  The recipe for the homemade cheese crackers can be found at my friend Christine's sight


  1. What fabulous looking lunches, Amy! Your cheese crackers turned out great and those graham crackers look DE-lish! Been meaning to try my hand at making some myself, so now you've got me motivated! Thanks so much for the shout-out, you sweetie! And keep those awesome lunches comin'! :)
