Easy Lunch Ideas

I'm a homeschooling mom, so I need quick easy lunches because I'm mom, teacher, chef and janitor. And sometimes I just forget that there are other things out there than pb&j. So here's a reminder for me, and you, if you need it.

the main thing:
personal pizzas on English muffins
pigs-in-a-blanket
turkey sandwiches cut into shapes with cookie cutters
tomato soup and grilled cheese
tuna salad and crackers
corn dogs
egg salad sandwiches
cheese quesadillas
fried egg sandwiches
fish sticks
chicken nuggets
bagel sandwiches (turkey or ham on toasted bagel with melted cheese or cream cheese)
hummus and crackers with shredded carrots
pitas stuffed with leftover chicken, Parmesan cheese, dressing and lettuce
cheese sticks
boiled eggs
turkey and cheese pinwheels


sides:
yogurt
carrot sticks
cucumber slices
raisins
mandarin oranges
cheese cubes
ants on a log (celery with pb and raisins)
grape tomatoes
fruit cups
baked chips
pretzels
pickles
good ole apples and bananas or other fruit (grapes, peaches, strawberries, kiwi, etc.)
J-E-L-L-O

If you have more lunch ideas, I'd love to hear them!

Love the list. Here are a couple we do... frozen pizza (I love Tombstone), chicken patty sandwiches, noodles with butter and parmesean cheese, baked potatoes. Sometimes the girls and I have big salads. Now for a request.... do you have a good snack list for that mid-afternoon time? I am stuck on popcorn, fruit snacks and apples. My poor kids!!! Help!!!
