1 Lunch + 2 Snacks #111
LUNCH – Turkey Pinwheels, Carrots & Cauliflower
These are my cheater lunch pinwheels! Made with the contents of a bagged salad and turkey. The bagged salad I used here was a mixed lettuce blend with dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds and a poppy seed dressing.
To make the pinwheels I simply tossed the salad together, topped a tortilla with a few slices of turkey, some of the salad and then rolled it up and cut into pinwheels. Super quick. Super easy. Super simple way to make school lunches too.
SNACK – Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal with Oranges, Blueberries & Cranberries
This Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal from babyfoode.com was a huge hit and being able to prepare it the night before, made Monday morning that much easier. I also love that it lasts a few days in the fridge and can be eaten cold like a bar. Perfect for quick breakfasts, snacks or popping into school lunches.
I pulled the blueberries right from the freezer and served them frozen (the kids love them like that). While I was in the freezer, I spotted the cranberries and decided to add one to each of the fruit bowls. I was a bit surprised, but the kids really liked them and ended up asking for more. Cranberries are very tart on their own (which is why I was surprised they liked them), but the tartness is mellowed a bit when they are frozen.
SNACK – Veggies & Baba Ganoush Dip
This was my first time making baba ganoush and it was super easy thanks to this Simple Baba Ganoush recipe from minimalistbaker.com. I’ve been looking for a way to make eggplant that everyone can enjoy and this seemed to be the perfect way to do it. Plus I love spoon worthy dips (dips that are healthy enough to eat with a spoon:) Paired up with an assortment of veggies this made a great after school snack.
