Sending a balanced diet to kids is always a big worry. Since all three of them go at the same time, I really go crazy thinking what to send for recess, for lunch and what to feed them when they are back home. Konda manages to eat something, while the boys just drink their milk. So I pack them breakfast for their snack break. The menu for them is almost standard as I think Dosas, Idlis can only be standard, as rice can't be feed for breakfast.
Coming to Konda's lunch or snack, when ever I ask her what she wants for lunch, she says sandwich. So finally today I made just that and sent. She simply loved it. It was a mild curried potato baked in microwave oven.
Quick Penne Pasta and Jam Pinwheels were on the menu yesterday. Both disappeared, with no traces found. And also she was happy that her friends loved both the dishes.
Bread Jam Pinwheels:
Bread Slices - 4
Mixed Fruit Jam - 2 tsps
Butter for roasting.
Method to prepare
Trim the sides of the bread slices and on a rolling board, place the slices and roll on them real hard. You will find that bread will become like a sheet.
Spread the Jam on the top. Then from one side, roll inward very tightly to join the other side. You will get a long roll. Cut into smaller pieces.
Heat a pan and place the small rolls, sprinkle butter and toss on all sides. Since these are filled with jam and also roasted, it remains soft yet very sweet to eat.
- This was a quick method. Normally I attach 3 -4 slices together while pressing the slices and spread the jam before rolling. This way you will get a bigger Pin wheel.
- Once the sides are tucked in well, this needs to be refrigerated for the ends to get stuck.
- Just before serving, remove, slice into smaller pieces and roast them in butter.
