My daughter started 1st grade last week and that means we are back to packing lunches everyday. Sometimes she likes to do it herself – or at least help, but most of the time I do it for her and hope she likes, and actually eats, what I pack.
Last year, for kindergarten, she wanted a sandwich every single day. This year she is mixing it up a bit, but sandwiches are always a favorite. The one that I’m sharing today is nothing outrageous, but all of my kids love it, and anytime they all actually finish a meal, it’s worth celebrating.
I remember one day when I was a kid, my dad made a nice sandwich for his lunch at work, but he accidentally left it at home. So I took the liberty of eating it upon myself. I didn’t want it to go to waste 🙂
I don’t remember exactly what was on it, but it was some kind of lunchmeat with cheese and lettuce, and mayo. We always had Hellmann’s mayo on hand for sandwiches. It was a pretty tasty sandwich and it kind of ruined me for pb&j, ha!
I like using Italian sub rolls for this sandwich because my kids think it’s special bread, and it gets them excited to eat lunch! I use ham and turkey along with cheese, lettuce, and tomato. Hellmann’s mayonnaise is a must, of course. And can I just say I love the new squeeze bottle? No more mayo all over my girl’s hands from trying to scoop some out of the jar. The precision tip is easy for her to use, and it makes it easy to write notes or little designs on the bread, which is always fun for kids! And the handy clean lock cap is great!

Happy lunch packing!
