It can be a challenge to come up with new ideas for the family’s lunchboxes. This mini ciabatta sub fills the bill. Pack one sandwich for kids in public school, two for teens and adults.
Mini Ham and Cheddar Ciabatta Subs
Make-Ahead Creamy Baked Penne with Italian Sausage
Three types of cheese and San Marzano tomatoes meld into a fabulous home-style Italian meal the whole family will enjoy. The pasta will cook further in the oven, so undercook it stove-top. Use spicy Italian sausage if you prefer.
Chicken and Andouille Sausage Gumbo
Somewhere between a soup and a stew, this hearty gumbo gets its thickness from brown rice instead of the usual flour-thickened broth. Pack leftovers in a thermos for a warming school lunch.
Lunchroom Avocado BLTs
Do you have the what-do-I-put-in-the-lunch-bags blues? Try this twist on a BLT! Pack one sandwich for younger kids, two for teens and adults.
Don’t head to the fast food drive-thru for a breakfast sandwich! Stay home in your PJs and make them yourself for the whole family.
Hearty Tofu Caesar Wrap
PC Blue Menu Tofu is made from the whole soy bean. Soy is the only complete-protein legume. It’s also low in saturated fat and an excellent source of protein which makes it a great meat alternative.
Wrap it Up! Chicken Lettuce Wrap
Here’s a high-protein snack the kids can help you make. Perfect for after school munchies.
Brown Rice Salad with Arugula and Feta

Banana Berry Rolls
The perfect after school snack! The kids can even help you make it.
