Our easy school lunch solution

I am by no means an expert at getting Lou out the door on time, but I have recently found a way to make our morning a little easier.  Yes, those are frozen sandwiches.  I made them last night and here is my week's supply (for the whole family).  Lou wants a turkey and cheese sandwich every day - I know, at least that's easy and she really doesn't like to vary much.  We started this last week when she started school and the week went by so smoothly.   I made all the varieties my family eats - turkey and cheese (don't add mayo until you're ready to eat, it makes it soggy), plain cheese, and pb&j. 

It's nice because it keeps the sandwich nice and cool without an ice pack and by lunch time it's nice and thawed.  All I need to do in the morning is put everything together (or have everything else together the night before).  It's made my morning so stress free!

  2. This is a great idea. Does the bread get soggy at all? I wish I had a bigger freezer to do this. I so need to buy an additional one.

  3. Nope, no soggy bread. I think it works best to leave the mayo off though and have the child put it on themselves at lunchtime.

  5. oh, this is great - I don't have freezer space or I'd do it. It would be nice to get ready for the week and forget about it :)

    Thanks for sharing on the Sunday Showcase. Looking forward to seeing what you have to share this week.
