Lunchbox Doldrums

About this time of year I get very bored of the lunch box contents. If I have to make another peanut butter and jelly sandwich, I’m going to scream!

Plus surely the kids must be dying of boredom when the open up the same lunch again, week after week?

Last weekend one of my many requests for Mother’s Day was to have a sandwich tasting.

I don’t want to send them with anything new lest they starve instead of try it. Which they have been known to do at dinner. But it’s different in the privacy of your own home, isn’t it?

So, a weeks worth of new ideas, want to see them? Maybe try them out on your own kids? Or just make them for yourself!
