Do you have lots of random ingredients in your school lunch boxes and don’t know what to do with them?
So what’s in your school lunch box?
Many families have been getting boxes of breakfast and lunch foods through the school system during the Covid-19 school closures. Some boxes are better than others.
Are you also facing some random ingredients that are piling up? Maybe the foods nobody in the house likes or is used to eating? Let’s share some ideas!
Grape Juice: This sorbet recipe was developed for Pesach but we love it all summer!
Chocolate Milk: Drink it straight up! But if there’s too much, you can make ice cream!
We got a lot of feedback on this topic when we presented it on social media. Many people suggested making fruit leather out of applesauce or canned fruit. Lots of people got too much milk and turned it into cream cheese or ricotta cheese. Or ice cream and smoothies. They’ve been turning bread and rolls into bread pudding and bread crumbs. Cereals become cereal bars and cereal treats.
And remember, sharing is caring! There are lots of people who are not eligible for this food or don’t get enough. They may not have children in the age range required, they may have lost incomes – whatever the reason, there are people who can gladly use the extra groceries you can’t. Reach out and your heart will feel lighter as your freezer gets emptier!
