So, here's what I do to make my life a bit simpler. I make a bunch of PB&J sandwhiches (my kids favorite) and freeze them. Fresh fruit is always a good snack and easy to pack. I can do some yogurts, and cheese, but we pretty much don't buy potato chips. So, what ideas do you have? I just love reading your comments and your input. Even if you are a hot lunch person, I'd still love to hear from you. I know
Do you remember the "uncrustables"? They're probably still out there. I heard they were patented because they actually put peanut butter on both sides of the bread, then the jelly. This way the jelly doesn't soak into the bread and make it all mushy. So, that's what I do too. My kids will eat the crust though, so that's one less step for me. You don't have to wrap these in plastic wrap, I just found it kept the bread a little nicer. The first time around, I flash froze them and then put them in gallon sized bags.
So, there you have it. All I have to do for packing lunches is reach in the freezer, grab a sandwhich and go. It thaws out by the time they need to eat it.
So, any tips out there?
