***Meatloaf Finger-Sandwiches

We think cold boca burgers taste a lot like meatloaf sandwiches, and are even better the day after. We usually cook up some extra burgers, prepare them the way we like (cheese, mustard, ketchup, & pickles) and put them in baggies for the next day. Today we had some on hand from last night's dinner, so we served meatloaf sandwiches for lunch today. We cut them into little triangles, which makes a big difference to a toddler! Then, rounded it out with some peas. Ta Da -- lunch in 5 minutes!
Side note: We take meatloaf sandwiches with us when we travel in the car. We cook them the night before we leave...they keep really well even without a cooler...and we've found them handy to have because it can be tough to get vegetarian food out there.

Great idea! We like the Amy's California burgers too, and so if I have extras, I mash them with a little Nayonnaise or other condiments, and spread it on bread then add veggies, etc, for a quick sandwich that is quite filling. Funny how kids love their sandwiches cut in certain ways - rectangles, triangles, circles... and, no crusts please! :)

"Little Pea" is my new favorite children's book -- the kids in my class LOVED it, and roared with laughter at the end. Especially the line, "and they all lived hap-pea-ly ever after."

Dreena, awesome tip with the extra veg burger! Kids crack me up -- how old is yours?

Too cute, Catherine. :o)
