Ham, Cheese and Onion Scones for Breakfast

Yesterday's ham and cheese lunch becomes today's scone. The 2 slices of ham leftover from yesterday's sandwich rolls was diced up, and mixed with 1 cup of the Mexican blend shredded cheese, and 1 finely diced green onion, and mixed with one package of Garvey's Scone Mix prepared as usual (any scone mix or recipe for basic scones would work.)

I baked mine at 425 for about 14 minutes- I watched them closely, and as soon as I saw the bottoms were starting to brown, I took them out of the oven. That always gives me a perfect scone.

Friday Ham Rolls

This sandwich is built on Wholly Wholesome spinach flat bread from Whole Foods. I spread 1/2 of it (the top half, where the sandwich would be sealed) with Trader Joe's cream cheese with onion. I layered rosemary ham (no nitrates, from Trader Joe's) in the middle of the sandwich with organic romaine (ribs removed) and shredded Mexican blend cheese. Then I rolled it and sliced it. You will see pretzels (I buy the giant bag from Costco) around the sandwich, and delicious organic oranges in the small container. I also sent a Luna bar with this, for my son's passing period, in case he needed a snack.

Peanut butter celery sandwiches

We've all had peanut butter on celery, now here is peanut butter with sliced celery in a sandwich! It's delicious, and much less messy in a lunchbox. You can see I used a round scalloped cutter to shape the bread (saving the trimmings, which have a hole in a slice of bread, for "eggs in toast" on the weekend).

I sent these sandwiches with cashew clusters, Back To Nature Oreo style cookies, and pretzels fill in the spaces around the sandwich in the Lunchbot tin. I also sent applesauce on the side- it would not fit in the tin.

It's Weds- so my kids don't need lunch

On Weds my kids have a short day, so I don't need to pack them a lunch. I took a little salad, a KIND macadamia and apricot bar, and a thermos full of mint tea with lemon.

I left some Indian food- naan and lentils, eggplant and veggies in corningware in the fridge- for the kids when they get home.

Orange zest, white pepper and parmesan scones

I sent these in my kids' lunches today. I was playing with my Garvey's Organic Scone Mix (from Amazon- love it- it's the best for a lazy scone baker). So I was thinking- why not mix cheese and orange peel? So I grated the zest off 2 organic blood oranges, and mixed it with 1/3 of a cup of coarse grated parmesan cheese and 1/2 tsp white pepper. I stirred those ingredients in to the scone mix and baked as directed. The taste was amazing- or that's what we thought.

With the scone I sent a wedge of cheddar cheese, some apple sauce, a Think organic bar, and some celery sticks. I think the cheese and orange peel mix would be good in any bread or biscuit.
