Jack’s recently become receptive to tortillas, which opens up a whole new avenue of lunchbox food: pinwheels! (You can’t really blame him for not liking tortillas previously; I’m not a fan of them, so we don’t often have them in the house.) For this week’s school lunch, I took a break from the usual sandwich and instead put this together in my trusty Easy Lunchbox:
For the pinwheels, I spread a thin layer of cream cheese on a spinach tortilla, then put on a few slices of deli ham, topped with English cucumber that I shaved off with a veggie peeler (rolls up more easily if the cucumber is razor-thin). Then, I rolled it all up and cut it into slices — voila, pinwheels! I threaded two pinwheels each onto two light saber cupcake picks. To fill out the rest of the big compartment, I cut three little hearts out of the frittata from yesterday’s breakfast, then wedged everything in place with some cherry tomatoes.
