29 School Lunch Ideas

 

Regardless of whether the school year has just started or is nearing the end, coming up with unique, creative, (not too much work) school lunch ideas can be a real challenge – it’s so easy to get stuck in a rut – same mindless sandwiches or cheese and crackers for days on end.

So we decided to round up a plethora of school lunch ideas (with links to recipes as needed) from which you can pick and choose and are sure to find several that will bring smiles to your face and theirs! You’ll find your fill of ideas for cold lunches, hot lunches, and leftover lunches (each able to be packed in a variety of ways).

Additionally, we’ve included a hand full of tips along the way to help you keep food warm or cold or prevent fruit from turning brown, etc. Let’s dive in!

 

Cold School Lunch Ideas

Cold Lunch Ideas

Turkey / Cheese Tortilla Wraps
 – These are so simple; grab your favorite tortilla (whole wheat, white, veggie, gluten-free) and spread slices of turkey (or ham or beef) with sliced cheese (or a spread of cream cheese), roll it all up, and slice at an angle in half (or into bite-size pieces).

Pasta Salad – Make this dish ahead a day or two; toss cooked pasta with fresh chopped veggies (squash, cauliflower, broccoli, peas, or olives), diced ham or pepperoni and cheese (if desired), and Italian salad dressing or a favorite vinaigrette.

Yogurt with fruit and/or granola

Bagels with cream cheese or favorite spread

Hard-boiled eggs

Smoothie

Meat and Cheese Roll-ups – Spread cream cheese onto slices of lunch meat and roll up.

Sliced apples with peanut butter

Muffins – Choose muffins with added protein powder or fruit and oats so it will be more filling.

Slices of meat and cheese with crackers (not just ham or turkey – pepperoni, salami, chicken sausage also work well)

Avocado – slice it in half, remove the seed, sprinkle both halves with salt and pepper and a spritz of lime or lemon juice; put halves back together and wrap with plastic wrap tightly. Send with a plastic spoon for easy eating.

Slices of meat and cheese rolled up, speared on plastic toothpicks along with olives or grape tomatoes

Tuna Salad (or Salmon Salad) – send just the salad itself or stuff it into a pita pocket with a lettuce leaf or spring greens

Pancakes or Waffles – include hearty oat or peanut butter or banana pancakes and pack with syrup or spread with peanut butter and jelly.

Sides – applesauce, guacamole and chips, cup of corn, olives, cucumbers, carrots, grapes, grape tomatoes,

No-Bake Energy Bites – These energy bites are peanut-butter based (so these would not be an option if your school doesn’t allow peanut items); mixed with honey, flaxseed, oats, chocolate chips, and rolled in coconut, they make a tasty protein treat.

Oatmeal with Fruit – Make an overnight oatmeal and pack it for lunch.

BLT Salad – Toss lettuce with halved grape tomatoes, shredded cheese, crumbled bacon, diced avocado, and hard-boiled egg (optional); pack salad dressing separately.

Pasta dishes – mac and cheese, lasagna, baked ziti

Hot Lunch Ideas

Burrito Bowl – toss together rice, salsa chicken, black beans, corn, and grated cheese; pack separately some salsa, guacamole or sour cream to stir in before eating.

Omelette in a Mug – eggs with milk, cheese, diced ham or bacon, and any desired veggies, cooked up in a mug in the microwave in about 2 minutes; dump into a thermos for a filling hot lunch.

Burritos – heat up your favorite frozen burrito (even healthy options) in the morning and double wrap in aluminum foil to keep warm for the day.

Soup – heat a favorite soup (purchased or homemade) and send in a thermos along with some breadsticks or crackers.

Leftover spaghetti and meatballs

 

Kids can Pack their Own School Lunches

Help the kids learn how to pack their own school lunches by providing various options in each of the below categories (pre-packaged in the fridge or panty for them), guiding them to select 1 protein, 1 vegetable, 1 fruit, 1 healthy snack, and perhaps a 2nd snack for a fun treat. Soon they will be doing the work for themselves, and they will be learning in the process the importance of planning ahead, prepping food, and making good choices for themselves.

Protein ideas – salami, pepperoni, turkey sticks, sliced lunch meats, cheese cubes, diced chicken

Veggie ideas – carrots, celery, cucumber, grape tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, snap peas, olives

Fruit ideas – grapes, strawberries, blackberries, apples, clementines, blueberries, diced pineapple,

Healthy snack ideas – pistachios, almonds, protein bar

Snack treat ideas – any type of treat you allow and they enjoy

14 Best Recipes with Ground Beef

 

 

14 Best Recipes made with Ground Beef

 

We have all been there – that moment when you look in the fridge or freezer, realize you have ground beef to cook up for dinner, but have no idea what to do with it (since perhaps the weekend was too hectic for you to put together your normal meal plan for the week). (Photo above by Brooke Lark on Unsplash)

Or maybe, like me, you came home with pounds of ground beef from the big box store or your local butcher and suddenly thought, “Wait! I don’t want to make the same three or four dishes over and over!”

Not to worry. Today we’re sharing some favorite (and perhaps unique) recipes made with ground beef, so you can try something different to add to the rotation or try several different things and broaden your family’s culinary horizons. So let’s get started! (Click on the title of each recipe to view detailed recipe).

First, always be sure to handle ground beef safely to reduce any risk of food-borne illness or bacteria affecting other food and kitchen items.

(Remember you can save your favorite recipes in your own Dish Dish recipe box today for easy meal planning and shopping for groceries).

1. Ground Beef Stroganoff Casserole – For this casserole, cooked noodles are tossed with mushrooms and ground beef in a creamy sauce with Worcestershire, beef broth and sour cream, layered with mozzarella cheese and baked for a hearty meal that takes less than an hour to put together.

2. Beef Enchiladas – Ground beef is cooked with yellow onion, garlic, black beans, taco seasoning, and some enchilada sauce, then scooped into and rolled up in flour tortillas, topped with more enchilada sauce and grated cheese before baking. It is so yummy! Top it with your favorite garnishes like olives, cilantro, sour cream, jalapenos, avocado …. and enjoy!

3. Devi’s Vegetable Beef Soup – This soup comes together quickly with canned (or frozen) vegetables along with ground beef in a beefy tomato broth seasoned with onion, oregano, basil, and bay leaves. It’s delicious served with pita chips, favorite crackers, or simply topped with a sprinkling of your favorite grated cheese.

4. Beefy Stuffed Zucchini – Dish up this healthy meal with ground beef, onion, peppers, and seasonings in a tomato sauce base, stuffed into hollowed-out zucchini “boats” and baked topped with some mozzarella cheese for a delicious family dinner.

5. Italian Beef Macaroni Casserole – This dish reminds me a little bit of a baked goulash or homemade version of Hamburger Helper. Ground beef cooked with onion, garlic, oregano and basil, simmered with tomatoes, beef broth and paprika, tossed with cooked macaroni and cheese before baking into a fabulous gooey meal that kids and adults will both enjoy.

Pasta with Ground Beef | Best Recipes with Ground Beef

6. Beef and Rice – This recipe comes to us from a Texas 4-H member, and is very quick and simple for when you only have a few minutes for dinner. Brown the ground beef, and toss with cooked minute rice, black beans, and chunky salsa, and sprinkle some grated cheese over top for a quick Beef and Rice bowl that’s ready in no time.

7. Crockpot Beef Tortilla Casserole – A hearty tortilla casserole layered up in the crockpot for easy cooking and serving; it does take a little time to get all the ingredients together and ready to layer in the crockpot, so leave enough time to do that. Don’t leave it in the crockpot too long – because the tortillas can get soggy. It has lots of great flavor, though, with beef, black beans, corn, taco seasoning, enchilada sauce, cheese, and tortillas.

8. Pasta with Beef and Beans – Five cheese ravioli and broccoli florets served up in a tomato beef sauce made with ground beef, northern beans, tomatoes and seasonings, topped with some shredded Parmesan. This recipe, too, comes from a Texas 4-H member.

9. Rich Beef and Tomato Ragout – Ground beef cooked with rutabaga, grape tomatoes and seasoned with red chili, cinnamon, basil, onion and garlic.

10. Beefy Bean-a-Roni – Macaroni, ground beef, red beans, celery and sloppy joe sauce are baked together and topped with cheddar cheese.

11. Mom’s Meatloaf – An old-fashioned traditional meatloaf seasoned with onion, garlic, Worcestershire, bread crumbs, egg and sage.

12. Southwest Stuffed Peppers – Stuff bell peppers with taco-seasoned ground beef (or ground turkey), rice, black beans, corn, and cheese and enjoy a healthy dinner!

Stuffed Yellow and Red Peppers Recipe

13. Taco Salad – This meal is easy and quick to have on the table in less than 30 minutes. Cook the ground beef with taco seasoning and beans, then layer tortilla chips, meat mixture, lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, avocado, or other favorite salad toppings (which can be prepped while meat and beans are cooking). Voila!

14. Spaghetti and Meatballs – A traditional fairly quick recipe for homemade meatballs served up in spaghetti sauce over noodles. Yum!

Best Ever Peach Blueberry Cobbler Recipe

 

 

Peach and Blueberry Cobbler Recipe ready to serve

 

One of the things I love about summertime is the ability to easily get fresh blueberries and peaches in our area. There is almost nothing as good as biting into a perfectly fresh, ripe peach and enjoying the sweet, luscious flavor.

However, the nice thing about this recipe for Peach Blueberry Cobbler is that it can just as easily be made with frozen peach slices and blueberries (so you can enjoy the fabulous flavor any time of year).

If you have a local farmers’ market or, even better, a Pick-Your-Own farm nearby where you can pick peaches or blueberries for yourself and enjoy them fresh, I encourage you to take advantage of those opportunities for fresh local produce. Both activities are especially fun with the kids or grandkids for a fun outing.

But now for our recipe, so you can get started on yours right away ….

First you’ll preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and then spray your baking dish (a deep dish pie pan or a 2-quart baking dish) with a little cooking spray. (This keep the cobbler topping from sticking to the pan after baking).

Then toss your sliced peaches and some blueberries with a little bit of sugar and place them into the prepared baking dish. If you like, sprinkle a little cinnamon over the top of them before preparing the cobbler topping, to add another flavor dimension to the dish.

 

Peach Blueberry Cobbler Recipe

 

For the cobbler topping, we’ll use a mixer to beat together sugar and butter. Then mix in some eggs and vanilla.

Lastly, combine the flour, baking soda and salt and add that mixture to the butter mixture alternately with some buttermilk (about half the flour, followed by half the buttermilk, and repeating), until all is combined. (See recipe with measurements and details).

 

Peach Blueberry Cobbler with Topping

 

It might sound a little complicated, but these are all basic ingredients from your pantry and fridge, so it doesn’t take long at all to whip together.

Side Note: If you do not have buttermilk, simply use 1 teaspoon of lemon juice or white vinegar and add enough regular milk to make one cup of buttermilk (best to mix this up and let it sit for a few minutes to combine before using).

Pour the batter over the top of the peaches and blueberries, and set the baking dish on a baking tray lined with aluminum foil (to contain any spill-overs from your dish while baking); sprinkle a little turbinado sugar over top of all, if you like. Place in the pre-heated oven and bake for 45 minutes or until batter is baked, set, and lightly browned.

 

Peach Blueberry Cobbler Recipe

 

This is so yummy, it doesn’t need anything else with it for serving; but if you’d like to top it with a dollop of whipped cream, a scoop of ice cream, or a drizzle of cold fresh milk, go right ahead. I often like mine with those added goodies, too!

Here are links to a few of the items we used while making and serving our cobbler, in case your kitchen needs some accessories (affiliate links mean your purchase supports Dish Dish without costing you any more), and we hope you enjoy.

Making Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya

 

How to Make Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya

We thoroughly enjoy eating Cajun dishes with the hearty, spicy, bold flavors for which they are known.

This simple one-pot Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya recipe is a favorite and comes together fairly quickly even on a busy weeknight.

First it requires a little bit of chopping and slicing (chopping onion and green pepper, slicing the andouille sausage, and mincing some garlic — if you don’t buy it already minced). P.S. Our bamboo cutting board pictured below is a phenomenal tool for this step!

 

Ingredients for Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya

 

Start the jambalaya off right by sautéing in a hot skillet with a little melted butter or hot oil, the chopped green pepper, onion (I prefer yellow), and minced garlic.

Sprinkle a little Cajun seasoning over some chicken tenderloins or cutlets and toss them in the skillet, too, turning as they cook through for 5-6 minutes.

 

Chicken, onion and peppers for Jambalaya

 

Toss in the sliced andouille sausage and cook another 3-4 minutes, allowing the sausage to heat up and the other ingredients to continue cooking. Remove skillet from heat and set aside. Remove chicken from skillet and dice into bite-size pieces, then return it to skillet.

Reduce skillet heat to medium. Now you’re ready to pour into the skillet a can of petite diced tomatoes (undrained), some brown rice (or long grain white, if you prefer), a cup of chicken broth, more Cajun seasoning along with thyme, salt and pepper, and a dash of hot pepper sauce (unless you prefer it to be less spicy).

And that’s it! Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and allow to simmer for 20 minutes or so until rice is cooked and has absorbed most of the broth. (See printable recipe here).

 

Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya in Skillet

 

Taste to see if it needs any more seasoning before dishing it onto plates for dinner. Serves up nicely with a tossed salad or some roasted broccoli (chop fresh broccoli and toss with olive oil, salt and pepper, and roast in the oven at 375 degrees F while your jambalaya is cooking on the stove).

Not only is this meal divinely tasty and hearty enough for the guys in your household, but it is also dairy-free and gluten-free (in case you’re working around allergies).

If you enjoy Cajun and Creole cooking, here are a few other recipes you might enjoy dishing up soon:

Easy Chicken Marinades {4 Ingredients} for Tender Juicy Chicken Every Time

 

 

Easy Marinade Recipes for Tender Chicken

If you cook with chicken regularly, you may be looking for some new ways to jazz up the main chicken course for your next meal.

Sometimes it can seem difficult, especially when grilling chicken, to be sure the meat comes out tender and juicy every time.

With these marinades, each with only 4 ingredients that are most likely already in the fridge or pantry, and about 30 minutes of time, your chicken will be succulent and full of the flavor you choose – whether sweet, herbal, spicy or something more unique made with your favorite beverage!

Thanks to Personal Creations for this wonderful infographic of easy delicious chicken marinades.

Each marinade is portioned for 1 pound of chicken; thoroughly mix together the marinade ingredients along with a dash of salt and pepper and toss in your chicken pieces. Seal all of it in a zippered plastic bag or covered dish and allow to marinade for 30 minutes to 12 hours (think about prepping the night before or in the morning and leaving in the fridge until 30 minutes before you’re ready to cook).

When ready to grill, simply remove chicken pieces from the marinade and cook them up for a delicious meal.

How to Make Italian Crockpot Chicken and Vegetables

 

 

How to Make Italian Crockpot Chicken and Vegetables

 

This scrumptious dish was something I put together one afternoon when I was home between meetings and realized I had not made a plan for dinner that evening.

Scrambling around and looking at what I had in the freezer and fridge, I decided to throw some vegetables into the crockpot, season them, top with chicken, and leave it to cook as I headed back out the door.

Thankfully, it turned out quite well and was a delicious meal, which I dished up with some quick brown rice after returning home for the evening. It is so easy to put together, I wanted to share it with you for your family!

So, let’s get started (and feel free to use whatever mix of vegetables you might have on hand to replace any of the ones in this particular recipe).

First I started with green beans (frozen whole green beans, because I didn’t have any fresh ones in the fridge) and tossed those in the crockpot.

Green beans in crockpot

 

Next up, I sliced some sweet peppers (using up some yellow ones I had in the fridge) and added those.

Yellow peppers with green beans in crockpot

 



Baby carrots, diced onion, and sliced mushrooms provided the next layer of goodness. I tossed those into the crockpot as well, sprinkling some Italian seasoning over all.

Mushrooms, carrots, and seasonings in crockpot

 

Last but not least, I placed into the crockpot the chicken tenders (seasoned with salt, pepper and a little fajita seasoning – because I like the garlic / onion base flavor in it) and poured some chicken broth over all of it.

Seasoned chicken tenders in crockpot




Since it was already past noon when I started this dish, I cooked it on high for 4 hours (plus a little longer by the time we were ready to eat); but if you put it on in the morning, just set it to low heat for 8 hours and it will still be fabulous.

I cooked up some quick brown rice at the end for serving with the chicken and vegetables for a complete, well-rounded meal.
