Well, it's officially school season around here. It's hard to believe. Wasn't it just May? This summer has been pretty nice. The weather has been amazing, we had a great family get-away and the the kids only mildly drove me a little batty at times. :)
With school back into gear, it's time to think about school lunches. We are fortunate our district's lunch program is really great. I don't worry about them getting anything too unhealthy and it gives me a break from making a sack lunch every once in a while.
Every school year, I have this grand plan of making these adorable lunches for them packed with healthy fun, food. This lasts for me until October. Then, I lose steam and everyone gets a sandwich, pretzels and an apple. Not too exciting, but, it's healthy and homemade, so, I don't feel too terribly guilty.
Well..maybe just a bit.
These little bites are on my list of lunch ideas for this school year! They are quick to throw together and are have a great cheesy, sweet combination with all the ingredients of a Monte Cristo sandwich.
My plan is to make batches and freeze, so, my lunch-making routine goes off without a hitch. That's my plan, let's hope I can stick with it this year. :)
You can also just whip these up for dinner or they would make a great appetizer for get together.
