101 recipes Potato Sandwich
My eldest son is ultralite and an extremely fussy eater. Every meal is a battle and at 8 years I still spoon feed him frequently! My meal plans tend to gravitate towards a high protein diet, but, being vegetarian, it doesn't quite reach atkins level. I add a good bit of fat to my son's diet to up his calorie intake. Off late he seems to love potatoes in every form, so I (hubby's suggestion actually) have decided to add a lot of potatoes and sweet potatoes to his meal plan, especially his lunch box.
Coming up with interesting lunch box menus has become especially hard since new baby arrived. I am still very sleepy at 6:30 and lunch has to be packed and ready to go at 8:00. So when a quick serendipity meal hits bulls eye on all counts - easy to make, healthy, gau finishes the lunch and asks for more of the same when he gets home - it is definitely a bookmark worthy recipe.
The second time around this recipe was just as popular, but I took the time to note down the measure of the ingredients. This time I also shaped it like a sausage and rolled it in a methi roti.

And the chickpea apple salad wasn't a hit :( Need a creamier dressing and better apples ...
