Youngest is back – I swear we see more of him now, than before he went to University 🙄
He is doing 2 weeks work experience at his old primary school, which he is really looking forward to, and we are having bets on how many times he calls staff ‘Miss’ – it must be really weird going back to your first school and entering the ‘staff room’…
The downside to this, is that I am catering for his ravenous appetite and his need for a packed lunch – he is more than capable of making his own, and indeed will be – but for his first week I thought I would treat him 😉
His favourite sandwiches are Ham and cucumber- I make these a few at a time and use frozen sliced bread – it is easier to spread butter on, doesn’t tear and will be defrosted well before lunchtime even if made in the morning. I love Aldi Torchon ham, it tastes like ham should.
I have a HUGE supply of Lock and Lock boxes, so use them rather than plastic bags – just personal choice.
As an alternative I have made a Tuna, sweetcorn and spring onion pasta salad.
Its cheap, tasty and filling – 4 tins of Aldi Tuna in brine cost just over £2 and the added salad is what I would buy anyway – the pasta was 25p.
I have also made Chocolate Brownies – an after dinner treat for us with Homemade Vanilla Icecream- I use This recipe for the brownies.
These will be cut up for lunch boxes too.
I have a load of fruit for us to grab and crisps/nuts/seeds for picking at.
And Aldi Greek layered yoghurts.
I hope this will keep him going till dinner time 😉
