Simple Sandwiches!

Today I needed to make lunch in a hurry and I decided simple sandwiches were in order. I had some leftover French bread from last nights chili dinner so I decided to use it in lunch today. The youngest girl has a field trip today so I packed her a disposable lunch in a brown bag. I also thought the other two could use a little love in lunch so I added a couple of Lunchbox Love Notes.

This lunch is for my daughter, she's using a small Lunchbots trio box, the dipper, and an 8 ounce rounds container. She has a ham sandwich, carrots, a side salad and multi grain chips. She is also taking a banana.

This lunch is for my daughters boyfriend. He has two small ham, salami, and Muenster cheese sandwiches. He also has peppers, cucumbers, carrots, salad, grape tomatoes, an orange, and a banana.

Mickey Mouse Mini Sandwiches!

Earlier last month I ordered these really cute Mickey cookie cutters. They are super cute and of course I decided to use them for mini sandwiches. They turned out really cute and the girls loved them. Both Mickey lunches are very similar.

This is lunch for the middle girl. She has an mini ham sandwiches, an orange, grapes, cucumbers, carrots, cashews, and peanut butter fudge.

The youngest girl has the same thing plus peppers.

This is just a simple sandwich made for one of the teenagers in the house. He has a ham, salami and provolone sandwich. Grapes, an orange, carrots, cucumbers, and peppers. He also had chips and applesauce.

Chicken Salad And Fancy Sandwiches!

Today I made three really easy lunches. I used the same chicken salad I made yesterday for the first lunch. You can get the recipe here. The other two lunches were made using a couple of vintage cookie cutters I have. I really became obsessed with vintage cookie cutters a few months ago and I have been on a cookie cutter hunt ever since. You can never have to many cookie cutters, although my husband would disagree with that statement. I also switched it up a bit and used both EasyLunchboxes and Yumboxes! I also included a few of my new food picks I got from Japan for Christmas.

This lunch has chicken salad, sesame crackers, Swiss and Asiago cheese slices, carrots, and apples. He also has two small pieces of banana nut bread.

First Lunches Of The New Year!

Hello there! I trust you all had a wonderful holiday and winter break! We did but I am so ready for the troops to head back to school. Our oldest daughter still has two weeks left before her second semester begins. She's looking forward to peace and quiet so she can catch up on some reading. I am looking forward to getting things organized around here, and of course the peace and quiet. So let's talk lunch and today I have a recipe for you also.

I made three lunches for today. The first is for my youngest girl. I thought she could us a bit of whimsy. She has a mermaid princess lunch today.

She has a ham sandwich, cashews, grapes, oranges, cucumbers, peppers, and carrots.

This is my moms favorite lunch. She asked me a few months ago to come up with a chicken salad recipe because she didn't like the store bought versions anymore.

This is lunch for my daughters boyfriend. He has croissants with chicken salad, grapes, an orange, peppers, carrots, and cucumbers. He also has a bag of plain chips, a cheese stick, and a water.

This is lunch for my mom. She has croissants, chicken salad, cucumbers, carrots, grapes and an orange.

Now here is my recipe for chicken salad.

Chicken Salad

1 large can of chicken breast or rotisserie chicken pulled from bone
20 or so grapes, halved
1/4 cup almond slivers, pecans or walnuts ( I used almond slivers)
2-3 tablespoons of mayo
salt and pepper to taste

Drain chicken and place in bowl, shred chicken. Place the rest of the ingredients in the bowl and mix well. Pile high on your favorite bread or wrap. You can even use lettuce leaves. Enjoy!

It's such a simple and yummy recipe. It only takes minutes to make.
