We're off to school this morning, for the first time in almost eleven weeks. My boys will be staying for lunch a few times a week and I've been in need of a simple sandwich, or fun alternative, for the lunch-box. Enter the kebab. Made from nothing more than a few skewered items, these little gems really make a simple lunch so much more appealing and yummy for my boys.
I've been known to make salad kebabs, fruit kebabs and even dessert kebabs. This year I think we'll experiment with sandwich kebabs. They're quick and easy and really rev up the excitement factor, which I think is due to allowing my little chefs to make their own variations, while experimenting and trying new combinations of foods.
In the photo above we have simply cubed some bread, folded some salami, sliced some cheese and chopped some pickles. We could have also added a chunk of lettuce, cucumber or even some cherry tomatoes. Anything is a possibility so long as it can slide onto the skewer with ease, and remain there (one note: I have tried feta cheese and it breaks so easily that it's almost impossible to have it remain on the stick).
What are you adding to your lunch-box this week? Anything that begins with the letter "K"? Don't forget...I will be compiling a printable A to Z list of fun foods for you and your children at the end of this feature and any comments with some alphabetical suggestions will be entered into a draw for a fun foodie prize. And whether you homeschool, unschool or send your children out into the world of academia, I wish all of you a wonderful day to come!
