2 easy lunch fixes

Good Monday afternoon friends!

Hope you all had great weekends. Ours was nice. Not all that eventful which is just fine by us!
I thought that I'd put up a couple of quick lunch fixes I've come up with. I frequently don't have much of a lunch but Justice definitely needs hers so I've come up with a couple of quick and easy fixes for her lately. I've discovered that Justice doesn't have typical toddler tastes as she won't eat pasta of any kind or hot dogs. What a weird kid huh?! It's made lunch (and a couple dinners) just a little tricky. So here are a couple of my concoctions for you to try;

Salmon Cresents

1 package salmon (2.6oz pouch)
1 tube crescent rolls (reduced fat for a healthier choice)
mayo to desired consistancy
spices (pepper, garlic powder) to taste

Preheat oven to 375 (or per crescent roll directions if different). In a small bowl mix salmon, mayo and spices to desired consistancy. Seperate the triangles of crescent roll dough then slice in half length wise (now you have 2 longer skinnier triangles). Add a little salmon mixture to the wide end of the triangle and roll up as normally would. Place on greased baking sheet or on ungreased baking stone. Bake 11-13 minutes or as directed on crescent tube. Makes 16 mini crescents perfect for toddler fingers (& grown up sized ones).

Salmon is a great source of Omega-3 as well as protein. Tuna certainly works too if you'd rather.


1 tube crescent rolls (reduced fat for healthier choice)
8 slices desired lean lunch meat
1 stick light string cheese

Preheat oven to 375 (or per cresent roll directions if different). Slice string cheese in half length wise then again length wise so you have 4 strips. Cut those in half width wise to have 8 short sticks. Wrap 1 slice lunch meat around each cheese stick then place at wide end of dough triangle and roll up as you usually would. Place on greased baking sheet or ungreased baking stone and bake 11-13 minutes or as directed on crescent package. Slice in 1/2 for toddlers and let cool or enjoy whole for yourself or older kids. Makes 8 full size crescents.

Hope you try and enjoy my quick creations. Let me know what you think-
