Are you stuck in a rut on what to have for dinner? I get that way, and that’s when I tell myself it’s time to take it back to the basics.
Food doesn’t have to be complicated. We just want it to taste amazing, right? I don’t think that’s too much to ask!
I pack my kid’s lunch everyday. One thing I can guarantee I will have on hand during the school year is deli meats and cheeses. So, when I find a good recipe, using things I already have on hand, and I can do a little switch-a-roo and make something quick and delicious with for dinner, I am patting myself on the back. Easy and delicious meals are key to my sanity when my kids are in school.
These sandwiches are so tasty, they didn’t even give me the “but we had sandwiches for lunch” line. These yummy toasted Italian subs would give any sub shop a run for their money!
Slather basil pesto on both sides of a hoagie roll, top with ham, salami and pepperoni and mozzarella cheese – toast it up in the oven, then it’s time to add your toppings.
We added lettuce (not pictured) red onion, ripe tomatoes, black olives and peperoncini pepper slices. Drizzle with olive oil and red wine vinegar and sprinkle with oregano.
Fold it over and sink your teeth in! We served ours with the Popchips Ridges Potato Chips I received in my Babbleboxx. The cheddar and sour cream flavor was delicious!
Wait. Babbleboxx, you ask. What’s that? Well, let me fill you in on all of the coolness that is Babbleboxx!

Let’s start with the Popchips, because I already leaked that part! We have long been fans of Popchips. My husband and I enjoy them for lunch a couple of times a week. However, the Popchips Ridges Cheddar Sour Cream Flavor was new to us! Sharp cheddar, smooth sour cream and potatoes—it’s the ultimate threesome! They are gluten free, always popped, never fried, they are HALF the fat of potato chips and pair perfectly with dips or sandwiches.

This last one, is great for all of us, because, we eat A LOT of rice in our house, but I would have to say that my two older kids were the ones who got to really enjoy these Veetee Rice bowls. They are perfect for them. One is away at college, and meals like this are top notch in his book – the other is at cosmetology school, and she is all about anything quick and easy she can zap in the microwave and eat before she’s on to her next client. All three flavors got two-thumbs up; Whole Grain & Quinoa, Jasmine, Basmati & Wild, and Rice Pilaf – I was told the rice pilaf was extra yummy with a little left over chicken stirred in. Mom is happy because I know they are made with all natural ingredients and the tray is BPA-free and recyclable. You are going to want to give these a try, find out where to buy them HERE.
With all of these options, breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks – back to school should be a snap! (well, except for algebra. 😉 )
