We’re having one of those Central Coast September heat waves that I’ve come to dread. On hot days, the kiddos alway request lunches that aren’t so heavy. That means that big sandwiches are out and cute, dainty sandwiches are in—like these little ham, pub cheese and sweet pickle relish roll-ups. Some nice, crisp fruits and veggies round out this lunch: carrots, sugar snaps, grapes and green plums. And, of course, a salty treat and kid fav: Veggie Straws.

Yesterday, I made mini sandwiches out of sliced pretzel rolls filled with 1) Nutella and peanut butter 2) Nutella and jam, and 3) butter and jam. The kids really love these little sweet sandwiches. And I’m afraid those bananas look a bit dodgy. I like my bananas just on the other side of green, but it’s been so warm in my house that they seem to go from green to speckled and really ripe in a matter of hours.
