If you are like me, you sometimes wonder, what can I make the kids for lunch (that they will eat), inexpensively. I’m thankful that Kroger has everything I need to make this great lunch for my kids so I don’t have to shop several stores. It’s all in one store saving me time, money and gas.
Making things they love, in a new way, is a great way to get your kids to want to eat their lunch, and even have it be one of those lunches, other kids will want and offer to trade their lunch for your kids.
Approximate cost for this lunch: $.86
Bread (I used Kroger Wheat Bread)
2 slices of Kroger Medium Cheddar
3-4 Strawberries cut in half
1 grape cut in half
1 carrot cut with a crinkle cutter (I used the Pampered Chef crinkle cutter)
1/4 cup veggie dip in a sealable container (I used the (Tupperware Snack Cup)
Large round circle cookie cutter
Mustache cookie cutter (or free style cut one out)
Take your bread and using the round cookie cutter, cut the bread into the best circle you can.
Take the bread and lightly butter one side. Put the medium cheddar cheese in the middle and cook on the stove until golden brown. Remove from heat and let cool.
Take the end of one of the carrots and cut into a small piece and place it on the grilled cheese for the nose, keep in place with a toothpick.
Cut the second piece of cheese with the mustache cookie cutter and place on the grilled cheese for the mouth. You can use toothpicks to hold in place.
I used the Tupperware sandwich keeper, snack cups, midgets and keep tabs to for this lunch.
