This week's Menu Plann - Including My Tips For Successful School Lunches

Here is the menu plan for this week.  I am starting to get great feedback from the girls as to what they like fvor lunch and what they don't like. It takes some of the guesswork out of the plan as I always make sure I include their top three favourite lunches each week:

1.  Grilled Cheese Sandwich -  TIP*** I make this the night before but then I re-heat it in the microwave in the morning and put in their thermos so it stays warm.  It make a huge difference doing it this way.  Brett took the girls to school last week and didn't heat it up and I definitely heard about it after school.

2. Tuna Sandwiches - Yep, my girls love them.  They always eat the whole sandwich.  Every single week.   TIP *** I toast the whole wheat  bread before adding the tuna.  I find the bread holds up much better when it is toasted.  No one likes a soggy tuna sandwich.

3.  Hot Pasta - This is definitely a favourite.  It goes in their thermos in the morning and stays warm until lunch.

I always try to throw at least one new idea in for their lunches.  This week I am trying Cinnamon Pancakes.  Who doesn't like breakfast for lunch!  Or dinner for that matter....
