I’m not exactly a cook. 

I’m more of a food assembler. 

My family is trying desparately to sneak in more veggies to our diet.  Regular well care visits to our beloved pediatrician for Lucy (18 months) and Noelle (4 years old) have once again ended in a single action step.

Two fistfuls of veggies per day. 

I guess 2 carrot sticks don’t cut it.  So we are trying to get more veggies in, not only for the kids, but for the adults too.

Here’s what I came up with – easy to assemble and tasty to eat.  An open faced sandwich with a slice of leftover beef roast with spinach, onions, and bleu cheese.  Basically I took the leftovers from dinner and put them on a piece of whole wheat bread for lunch.  It was delicious!

So when you don’t know what to eat, maybe you can take your leftovers and put them on a piece of toast.  Voila!  Lunch in a jif! 

I’m trying to think of what you couldn’t put on a piece of bread.  Pizza, soup (you could put your bread in)…I can’t think of too much more at the moment, can you?
