At our house we make A LOT of lunches! Which means most time A LOT of sandwiches! A life saver has been making up sandwiches before hand and then freezing them. This works out great for many reasons.
1. It helps the lunch meat stay fresh longer.
2. A frozen sandwich is a great "cold pack" subsititute. Helps keep the whole lunch cold.
3. The morning rush isn't so bad when you can just pull a sandwich out of the freezer.
We don't put any mustard, mayo, etc. on them before hand, I just keep the little packets on hand to throw in lunch boxes.
In these pictures we made 14 sandwiches (2 aren't in the pics.), and that did not make the week for us but it was all the lunch meat that I had! We usually do this on Sundays so we are ready to go for the week. Making school lunches definitly does not rank as one of my favorite things to do but with 4 kids in school full days it would cost me almost $60.00 a week for them to buy lunch!! And most of my kids would pick pizza everyday and where is the nutritional value in that! This way I am saving money and hoping they eat the fruit or veggies that I pack.
'til next time
