Tortilla roll ups

Posted on: June 14, 2012

I ran out of creative steam last night so I decided to sleep on it.  I woke up a bit fresher this morning, and thought Pinwheels!  I haven’t done those in a long time.  I usually do a sloppy job of making them.  This time I didn’t put as much filling in them and loaded the girls up with other yummy things in their lunch.

Both of them have almond butter & jam on whole grain tortillas.  Miss G’s version has musical note picks in them to hold them together.  Below on the left are cashews and raisins, and on the bottom right are blueberry stuffed raspberries.  In the top compartments are a mini homemade vegan oatmeal muffin with a tree pick and carrot and celery sticks.

Make sure to ask schools or play places if they are peanut or nut-free before your bring your lunches there.  It could save a child’s life!  As a rule in our family, we don’t take peanut butter out in public just as a precaution.   We only eat it at home now.   We pack SunButter, almond butter and sometimes even a soy based butter.  There are lots of great options out there to explore that won’t endanger someone’s health.

Miss A’s version has the food she likes and will eat.  She has the same mini tortilla roll ups with flower picks.  Below that to the left she has picks of pineapple and blueberries and underneath those are sliced green grapes, at bottom right are cashews and a dried apricot flower.  In the top left compartment is a mini oatmeal muffin with a bee pick and at the top right are raspberries.   Both lunches are packed in Easy Lunch Boxes.

Oh what a lovely lunch! Where do I find those picks you used for Miss A’s tortilla pinwheels and pineapple and blueberry fruits? I need those kinds! It made your lunches so neat and appealing.

Bought them at AllThingsForSale!

Usually my pinwheels turn out cleaner if I chill them in the fridge for at least a half hour before cutting them. But who needs that, really, when you have cute food picks?

Thanks for the tip. This was a morning rush job, but next time I decide to do these I’ll plan ahead :)
