Sandwich Saturday

Making daily bagged lunches for my family was such a chore that I began a practice I call Sandwich Saturday. Once a month, the four of us get together to create several dozen sandwiches in assembly-line fashion. I put out four or five freezer-friendly sandwich fillings. Then, we prepare the sandwiches, wrap them in heavy-duty foil, label them and store them in the freezer for fast lunch packing. We share stories, the children learn kitchen skills, we save money and a big chore is completed at the same time. —Lisa Nichol, Maple Ridge, British Columbia
