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!


  1. Thank you for linking to the Back to School Traditions link up! I love this idea!

  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.

  4. Great idea! I think I might do this for my husband's work lunches.

  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.


  6. I never thought of doing this! Great idea! My DD wants the same lunch everyday, too. Must be a kid thing :). Thank you for linking up!
