So let's break this down by day so you can see what we packed:
Monday Little Miss chose the turkey & cheese sandwich pocket. She's fortunate to have a microwave in her classroom she can warm items in, if she chooses, but she told me this was perfect at room temperature.
I packed with it some watermelon, snap peas, carrots, & cauliflower.
Tuesday it was pizza all the way! How I handled the crust was I had packed it plain on Sunday night. Then Tuesday morning, I added topping and quick popped it into the toaster oven to melt while I was getting breakfast together. That way it had time to cool off before putting it back in for school.
Little Miss also had a side salad, watermelon, & blueberries.
Wednesday were the Cream Cheese, Chicken, & Spinach Balls. I was going to take photos in more detail about these, but my Sous Chef ate the remainder of the filling we made after I had these done. lol, at least we knew it was good!
We also packed up two Cybele's Free-to-Eat Top 8 Free, Vegan, & Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies, carrots, and apple slices.
Again, simple to make but something different. We added diced cooked chicken breast, fresh spinach leaves I had chopped up, and cream cheese. I made a flat pancake of chebe dough and added a tablespoon or so (maybe closer to two) of filling. Sealed it shut by pinching and smoothing out the seams and giving it a gentle roll to make the "ball form". Kind of like a stuffed meatball. For my dairy free friends, try Daiya's new non-dairy cream cheese!
Thursday we packed up a yummy salad to go with her cheesy breadsticks. We could have done pepperoni breadsticks or packed them with marinara, but since we already had pizza I wanted to show another option.
She also has a Mini Dipper with gluten free, all-natural yogurt dressing, turkey roll-ups, blueberries, and banana slices. In case you're wondering, I dip the slices in lemon juice to keep them from browning.
Lunch was completed with a sweet Lunchbox Love Note!
And finally, Friday Little Miss had "Pigs in a Blanket". You can make these with your preferred "dog" - nitrate free, turkey dogs, tofu dogs, etc. Super simple and a kid favorite, for sure.
We packed them along with veggie chips, apple slices, and carrots.
What's your favorite thing to make with chebe mix?
Tempted to try any of these ideas? ENJOY!
