Easy Weekend Lunch Ideas For Kids

Weekend meals can be tricky. While the kid aren’t heading to school, there are a ton of different activities planned over the weekends. Some planned and some spur of the moment. I like to have a great list of lunch ideas handy so that lunch time on the weekends is easy and simple. Luckily, Campbell’s makes that easier for me with their delicious soups.

Now that the kids are older, I’ve simply expanded on our quick toddler lunches to include additional items like Campbell’s Organic soups and fuits or veggies to create the perfect lunch time meal. And most times all I have to do is set out the ingredients and let the kids make their own plates up. Then I serve them the soup when they have everything else on their plate. This is even more helpful when we have last minute guests, like when the kids cousins come over to play.

Campbell’s® Organic Soups are crafted from certified organic ingredients and no preservatives. These soups are perfect for a heart-warming, healthy lunch or dinner. Plus there are nine delicious varieties. My daughter’s favorite? The Frozen noodles. She goes crazy over the fun Frozen-themed shapes and will actually eat her soup (instead of just the noodles) when I serve it up. The boy cousins eat it begrudgingly because they enjoy the soup. Their request? A minecraft version!

Easy Weekend Lunch Ideas

Quesadillas + Soup

Quesadillas are awesome. You can put just about anything in them and by taking the flavors of the kids favorite Cambell’s soups, we can make complimentary quesadillas. My daughter opts for the classic cheese quesadilla but will add a little grilled chicken when enjoying chicken noodle soup. Plus it’s the perfect cold weather meal with the warm soup and quesadilla.

Sandwiches + Soup

What’s great about sandwiches are they’re so versatile. You can serve them hot in cold weather and cold in warm weather. We always keep some lunch meat on hand along with a few cheeses for the kids to fix up their own perfect sandwich creation. Then we’ll make paninis if the kids request it.

Wraps and Roll Ups

Grab tortillas, pitas, or other flat wraps and grab the same ingredients you’d put in a sandwich or quesadilla! By just changing how the kids eat their food, they can get quite experimental with what they put inside. Add a hummus spread or some avocado to give a little added flavor to your child’s wrap.

Soup + Salad

Don’t knock a good salad bar when you’re serving kids. You’d be surprised at how many kids will choose to eat salad when given the option to make their own. Just put together a good list of toppings and a few different dressings and be amazed at the kids who will start munching on their greens.

Creative Ways to Use Leftovers {Grilled Pulled Pork and Mac and Cheese Sandwich Recipe}

I’m sharing this delicious Grilled Pulled Pork and Mac and Cheese Sandwich recipe and other creative ways to use leftovers with Campbell’s® Sauces as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #CampbellsSauces

Grilled Pulled Pork and Mac and Cheese Sandwich Recipe - Creative Ways to Use Leftovers #CampbellsSauces

As I mentioned previously, pre-planning meals with a newborn in the house is quite important when I have a house full of hungry people. Luckily I’m fairly creative and have not only planned out great slow cooker freezer meals but have also figured out ways to use those meals along with others I’ve prepared to make delicious leftover dishes like this grilled pulled pork and mac and cheese sandwich.

Getting creative with leftovers doesn’t have to be hard. Many dishes can be recreated simply by pairing them with another dish or adding a few other ingredients to change things up.

One of my favorite things to do is make a protein in the crock pot like chicken, beef, or pork, and have that meat slated for a few different recipes to make throughout the week. Cooking it up on a Monday means that I could easily have dinner prepped for Monday night, Wednesday and Friday! And we’re not eating the same boring leftovers.  [Read more…]

Pot Roast Pot Pies #CampbellsSkilledSaucers

I have a love-hate relationship with my slow cooker. Because sometimes I have these amazing, awesome creations that everyone raves about. And other times I’m calling the pizza guy before my husband gets home because what’s in the slow cooker is definitely inedible. Luckily since I’ve found Campbell’s Slow Cooker sauce I can create an easy weeknight dinner AND create a second dinner for another night in the week with the leftovers.

Each time I’ve used these sauces I’m left with an absolutely delicious meal that the whole family loves. Lucky for me I’m stocked up on all of my favorite flavors. I love the Tavern Style Pot Roast: roasted garlic, mushrooms, cooked in it’s own gravy. Delicious. And the leftovers? They make these awesome leftover pot roast pot pies!
