Apple Roll Ups

We're in the thick of homeschooling.  Our days are packed full of fun learning and some less than fun learning.  All of it necessary.  Each day brings a particular challenge -- lunch, of all things!

I don't know if it's the stopping of our progress in school that so disturbs or the trying each day to figure out exactly what we'll eat.  We often opt for mac 'n cheese or lunch meat sandwhiches or tomato soup in the winter.  Often though, we find ourselves in a lunch rut -- tired of peanut butter and jelly, or left-overs from dinners past, and so on.

Barely two weeks into our school year, we were already into the rut when Meg reminded me of a fun lunch/snack that we put together last year--Apple Roll Ups.

To make these you'll need:

Two or three apples cut into wedges.
We used Gala.

  A few slices of cheese cut in half.
Any variety will work, this is Colby Jack

Lunch meat. 
This is turkey, but again, any kind will work.
(Chipotle ham is especially yummy if you can find it!)

Lay a slice of meat on a plate and then add the halved slice of cheese.

Next, place an apple wedge at the bottom of the cheese.


Then, just roll the apple up in the meat and cheese.

Eat and enjoy.

(It also adds to the fun when
you serve lunch on "insect" plates.)

"Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good."
Psalm 34:8
