Do you need a fun idea for your kids’ lunch? I have a simple lunch idea for you. All you need is flat bread, meat, and cheese. You can use different meat and cheese each time.

Meat and cheese kabobs are very fun to eat. My girls, Katie and Sophia, loved eating the kabobs. I placed deli turkey meat and cheddar cheese on top of flat bread. Katie’s kabobs also had pepperoni on top of the turkey. I melted the cheese and then cut the flat bread into bite size pieces.

Here is my recipe for meat and cheese kabobs.

Do you love having options of simple and easy meals to make for dinner? There are days that I don’t have time or don’t feel like making a complex dinner. Do you have those types of days? I totally do. Especially after a long day. I have a great healthy chicken sandwich idea for you.

I created the marinade for the chicken with what I had in my fridge/pantry. I put ingredients together that I thought sounded good together. The flavor of the chicken turned out great. I melted mozzarella on top of the chicken and added spinach and a slice of tomato to the sandwich. For a side with the chicken sandwiches, add fruit such as pineapple, strawberries, and raspberries.

Here is my recipe for raspberry Italian chicken sandwiches.

Do you have those days that you don’t have much time to prepare a dinner? Do you need a meal idea that takes less than 30 minutes to prepare? I have something for you.

These honey bbq chopped chicken sandwiches are perfect to make when you are in a rush to get dinner on the table. Additional toppings can be added to your preference. A side with the sandwich can be something like carrots sticks and slices of apples.

I love making these honey bbq chopped chicken sandwiches in the summer time. It tastes great on a hot summer day. Sometimes I add a creamy flavor to the top of the chicken – freshly smashed avocado made into guacamole.

Slush Burgers

What are slush burgers? Slush burgers are similar to sloppy joes, but a little bit different.

I was first introduced to slush burgers when I married my husband. His family made them and I got the recipe from his mother. I added couple ingredients to the recipe to make it my own.

The sauce is made out of spaghetti sauce and little bit of salsa. The salsa makes the slush burger little too spicy for my girls, so I dish their food out before I add the salsa to the sauce. That way they can still eat the slush burgers without spice and we can have the spice.

Here is my recipe for slush burgers.

Who doesn’t love cheeseburgers? This burger is different than the original patty. Add barbecue sauce to the hamburger patty and you get a very juice burger. Plus a sweeter taste. Top the burger with grilled onions and mushrooms for extra flavor.

Fruit Wraps

I started making fruit wraps for my two-year-old daughter, Katie, and myself. Katie is hit and miss on eating certain fruit. It depends on the mood she is in. One way that I can get her to eat more than few pieces of fruit is to add it to a wrap. She loves it and scarfs it down.
The fruit wraps are great for breakfast or a snack. You can add whatever fruit you have in your house. It will taste good no matter what fruit is inside.
