Pinwheel Sandwiches for Lunch

Here's a lunch I made for the girls today. I've always loved pinwheel sandwiches and it recently occurred to me that the girls should try them. They're yummy, look neat AND they have a cool name - what's not to love, right? Well, despite these very valid points, I wasn't exactly sure how they'd go over the with the girls the first time I made 'em for them because they are kids, afterall! Well, much to my delight, this lunch was a hit with both girls, especially Big Sis - which says a lot considering she's my picky one. Woo hoo!

So here's what I used to make these pinwheel sandwiches: my favorite Applegate deli meats and cheese, organic baby spinach, ranch dressing on top of Banderita's Whole Wheat tortillas (my favorite brand because they're so soft). Darn! I forgot to throw in some matchstick carrots and broccoli slaw, for added goodness, crunch and color pop, but alas, I forgot. Oh well, next time.











Once you've topped your tortillas the way you like it...

Roll 'em up and slice 'em across (ooops, I shoulda shown one of 'em sliced!)

Pinwheel Sandwich Lunch
Pin It
In this lunch:
  1. Pinwheel wraps made with Applegate ham and American cheese, spinach, and some ranch dressing, just the way Big Sis likes it!
  2. Pineapples and blueberries in one (Little Sis') and popcorn in the other (sigh... at least it's a healthy snack!)
  3. 100% Whole Grain Triple Berry Newtons
  4. Snack Factory's Pretzel Crisps aka flat pretzels as we call em.
  5. Trader Joe's Gummy Bears and Filled Jellies
  6. Now Foods Organic Popcorn

Updated: Just HAD to inlcude this "after" picture. I'd say THAT went over well! :) Little Sis' on the left - this is what her lunches typically come home looking like and Big Sis' on the right. She said the popcorn was stale by the time she got to is this afternoon. Not too shabby! :)
