I realize it’s only October, but we’ve come that point where my kids have reached the “point of no return” with lunchbox sandwiches. Even bagels with cream cheese and jam, which they proclaimed to be an awesome lunchtime treat just weeks ago have become “same old, same old”. Since my kids make their own lunches the night before to save time in the mornings, they went into autopilot when it came to lunchtime creativity. Really, who can blame them? I know that my creativity level is at 10% (and dropping) in the evening.
The combination you see above is salsa, sliced black olives (a favorite for my boys) and sliced red bell pepper. You can make this roll-up in about two minutes flat, and it’s a welcome change from the usual ham and cheese combinations.
I have four more pinwheel sandwich ideas for you! This is a post I did for the Pioneer Woman’s Food & Friends sections, so be sure to pop over there for my Lunchbox Ideas: 5 Pinwheel Sandwich Recipes.
And while you’re kids are at school, munching on their pinwheel sandwiches, or when you’re at home from work on the weekend, you might want to have something a little more grown-up (though, honestly, I’d happily eat pinwheel sandwiches any day of the week). Here are a few ideas for you:
