Dempster's 'Sandwich It' Twitter PartyThursday, September 06, 2012
This week, my daughter returned to school and my son began junior kindergarten. It has been an exciting week but also a bit draining trying to establish a routine. While my son will still have lunch at his daycare, we still need to prepare a snack for him and a full lunch for my daughter. Truth be told, my husband usually takes care of that. And since I'm being honest here, we don't do a very good job of planning out our meals. This makes meal prep a little more stressful than it should be. While a part of me would much rather avoid planning our meals altogether, I know it would be smarter, much more efficient and less costly to prepare a shopping list and meal ideas well in advance. When it comes to making lunches, I almost always resort to making sandwiches since they are fairly easy to prepare. But there have been times when I open the fridge door and I'm all out of deli meats and there isn't a can of tuna to be found anywhere. Yikes!
On our first day back at school, my son requested boiled eggs for breakfast. He rarely eats more than one but sometimes he will ask for a second. I decided to boil half a dozen eggs which would have him covered plus I could save a few to make an egg salad for sandwiches the following day. For some, this may not be such a novel idea but for me, it was a mini-revelation. Cook once, eat twice! This has me reconsidering dinner ideas and preparing an extra serving of, let's say... chicken and using it in a sandwich the next day.
Luckily, I can hop onto Dempster's Facebook Page for recipe ideas, such as their Leftover Chicken Siesta Sandwich, to help make yesterday's cookout tomorrow's tasty sandwich.
Also, next Wednesday night, Dempster's is hosting a #SandwichIt Twitter Party where we will discuss tips on how to easily prepare sandwiches and find inspiration for turning leftovers into lunches. Hope you will join us!
