For lunch on Thurs., Ainsley had a turkey roll and some baked Lay's (plain flavor). Do you know how great Pillsbury crescent roll dough is for kids allergic to the things Ainsley is? You can do so much with them!
Turkey/Ham rolls: I buy the reduced fat crescent rolls and roll up turkey or ham in them, bake them for ~10 minutes (following package directions), and freeze them so I can pull one out at a moment's notice for lunch or dinner (reheat for 30 seconds in the microwave and it's ready). Sometimes I include vegan cheese in the roll too.
Cinnamon rolls: My mom makes cinnamon rolls with them by sprinkling cinnamon sugar on them and then rolling them up and baking them.
Pigs in blankets: For this recipe the crescent rounds (like crescent rolls, but shaped differently) work best. My mother-in-law showed me how I can wrap a Hillshire Farms "lil smokie" (small sausage) up in some of the crescent round dough (unravel a 2-3 inch strip of dough from one of the rounds and wrap it around the middle of the sausage) and bake up a huge batch for freezing. Those are delicious!
If anyone has any other crescent roll dough recipes, please let me know!
Thurs. night, Ainsley had some lunchmeat, vegan cheese, and strawberries. That did not quite fill her up, though, so she requested that Daddy pick her up another Wendy's crispy chicken sandwich on the way home.
For lunch today, Ainsley wanted the same thing as on Wed. -- chicken nuggets, fruit, and snapea crisps.
