It is that time again! Since the kids are out of school for the summer I thought I would go with a couple of cheap lunch ideas to help keep your grocery bill under budget through the summer.
Every kid loves pizza, so why not let them make their own? It is cheap and easy to do.
English Muffins or Biscuit dough
Pepperoni or other toppings
Let the kids spread some tomato sauce on either an English muffin or a piece of rolled out biscuit dough. Place cheese and other toppings on top of the tomato sauce and simply bake in the oven. If using English muffins you will bake at about 350 until the cheese is melted. If using biscuit dough, follow the directions on the package to make sure that the dough gets cooked through.
Pinwheels are easy to make as well as cheap! You can use anything that you want for the center. My kids love turkey with cream cheese.
Tortillas (I use whole wheat)
Spread cream cheese on the tortilla and then place a piece of turkey on top. Roll the tortilla up and then slice into 6 to 8 “pinwheels.” As mentioned, you can use any type of ingredients for these that you want. Just make sure that you do not fill them to full or they will be difficult to roll and cut.
