MMMmonday - Back to School Lunch ideas

I was having a conversation with one of my MOMS Club friends about mixing up the ideas for school lunches and I thought I'd share a couple of our favorite recipes and ask you to also share your back to school recipe ideas!

One of the things that I love to do is to make wraps - they seem to travel better than traditional sandwiches and they're so versatile!

Veggie and Hummus Roll-up (per sandwich)

1 6 inch flour tortilla or flatbread
1 tbsp hummus
1small handful baby spinach or your favorite lettuce
1/4 tomato, chopped (or sun-dried tomatoes if you prefer)
a few pieces of julianned carrots

Spread the hummus over the tortilla.  Add the veggies and roll!  

Cantaloupe and Turkey Roll-up (per sandwich)

1 6 inch  flour tortilla or flatbread
1 tbsp horseradish mayo (can substitute creamy ceasar dressing or just plain mayo, sour cream etc)
1 wedge of skinned and seeded cantaloupe
1small handful baby spinach or your favorite lettuce
1 or 2 slices of roasted turkey deli meat, or chopped leftover turkey

Spread mayo over tortilla, add lettuce then turkey and finally top with wedge of cantaloupe.  Roll and enjoy!

Peanut Butter and Banana Wheels (makes enough for 2 kids lunches)

My mother calls these ones bereavement sandwiches because she's always asked to contribute them when we have pot-luck somber occasions, but if you can take peanut butter to school, this is a yummy way to do it.

1 rectangular style flatbread
2-3 tbsp peanut butter (I like my peanut butter thick!)
1 medium banana

Spread the peanut butter onto the flatbread, place the banana at one end and roll.  Cut roll into 1cm slices and yum!

What do you put in your kids lunch that's interesting?
