I have challenged myself to be more healthy and less wasteful. I am going to journal my efforts to feed my kids healthy, waste free lunches and snacks. I will have some winners and some losers but I'm putting it all here...the good, the bad and even the ugly!
Day 474 - Tuna, soft pretzels, clementine, chocolate covered Craisins, raisins and pistachios. For D's tuna I just add a small amount of mayonnaise and a hefty spoon full of dill pickle relish.
My lunch is similar except instead of tuna I have Italian Sub cheese ball. I am obsessed with Italian cold cuts and pepperonici lately. I didn't have enough cold cuts to make a calzone so in my food processor I pulsed a couple slices of ham, salami, pepperoni and provolone until it was finely chopped. I moved that to a mixing bowl. Then I put in about 5 pepperonicini with stems removed and finely chopped those. I mixed all of that in with just enough cream cheese to hold it all together. It still wasn't spicy enough for me so I added a heaping spoonful of crushed red pepper (sub sandwich style not dried). I used a knife to spread it on my pretzel....AMAZING!! I think I would make this for a party...You could form it into a ball and roll it in crushed garlic croutons or maybe parmesan ones!
