Let me just start by saying that the lunches I make for my kids and my husband are BORING! It’s just not a meal I get terribly excited about. In fact, most days, I normally skip the lunch and snack on other things instead like an apple or nuts…or like yesterday, I ate a chocolate bar…with some blueberries for god measure. But lunches in our house mainly consist of peanut butter and jelly, whatever lunch meat is on hand, or even macaroni and cheese-from a box! I do however, switch the macaroni and cheese between Annie’s organic brand and Kraft’s Cheesiest.
Josh is great at making lunches though because he is so creative with sandwiches. He can go to the store and linger around the marked down bread stand and find something that speaks to him and he’ll take the bread home and make something magnificent with it. You gotta love a man who really enjoys cooking and creating in the kitchen!
I don’t know if maybe Josh has inspired me or what, but I decided to get creative in the kitchen when our lunch time rolled around. From some of the food we brought back home with us on vacation was some leftover hoagie rolls and a tomato that I knew needed to be used. Suddenly, I knew what I wanted to make. A tuna melt, but jazzed up a little bit more. What I came up with, was a tomato tuna melt and it was fabulous!
Grace told me that it tasted like something daddy would create which was a high compliment and Eden even ate almost all of her! This is the kind of sandwich that paired with some chips makes a great lunch or if you want to turn this into a dinner, just add a bowl of soup!
