Another Lunchbox Hit

Posted by MANDI at 7:42 PM
This one was pathetically, ridiculously simple. I'm not even sure it has much in the way of nutritional content but Offspring #1 liked it. Even better, he ate it and his lunchbox came home empty! Which meant that, regardless of the questionable nutrition, he at least had some food in his tummy to power his brain and, hopefully, he learnt something this afternoon.

These twists will last a couple of days in an airtight container so they won't solve a week of lunches but they'll sort out at least a day or two rather nicely.

Cheese Twists
from The AWW Little Party Books: Fairytale

2 sheets ready-rolled puff pastry
1 tablespoon tomato sauce
1 cup (100g) pizza cheese
1 tablespoon milk

1. Preheat oven to 220C. Line oven trays with baking paper
2. Spread one piece of pastry with tomato sauce; sprinkle with cheese. Top with remaining pastry; press down firmly.
3. Cut pastry into 20 strips. Twist strips, place 2 cm apart on trays. Brush with milk.
4. Bake about 10 minutes or until browned lightly. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Great idea and nutritionally fine for growing bodies. Plenty of calcium and energy. We'll be doing these for the toddlers who are currently hoovering us out of house and home.
