The summer flew by and it is time to return to school, which means planning lunch boxes and all that our children need to devote themselves to schoolwork.
When my children were young I found it very convenient to plan menus in advance, both for home and for school lunches. This helped me organize my weekly shopping and allows me to prepare some dishes in advance.
For example, if we had a BBQ on Sunday or baked chicken, I would take the opportunity to prepare these vegetables to combine with pasta and cheese to make a delicious salad for lunch the next day. With a main dish and many vegetables, I just had to add a yogurt and some fruit. To drink, lemonade or ice cold chicha morada, and voila: a healthy, complete and easy meal to prepare.
The great advantage of this recipe is its flexibility, since you can use any vegetable you have on hand or your children's favorite. If they are carnivores, you can incorporate bits of roast chicken or a mini meatballs or turkey.
This salad can be eaten hot or at room temperature, but given the high temperatures that occur in some places to recommend you refrigerate the vegetables, especially tomatoes, so they don't spoil.
As you can see, preparing recipes to take to school does not have to be complicated or elaborate. And if you take the time to think about your weekly menu, something I love to do, you'll have everything on hand to prepare tasty school lunches. Your children and you will be happy.
