We love our French Dip sandwiches and turns out they are portable sandwiches packed in foil for a double baseball game. Last week I purchased several pounds of local beef and knew a bottom round roast would come in handy on a ballgame night. I threw the roast in the crock pot as I ran out the door and hubbie shredded the beef when he got home from work. I ran by the store and bought some wheat rolls and we were off and running to the ball park. Actually, my four-year-old and I used some brown bananas to make a sweet treat, her favorite, banana chocolate chip muffins. I use our favorite banana chocolate chip bread recipe and bake three dozen muffins for about 20-25 minutes using this recipe. We packed these as well.
Instead of nachos and cheese, we were indulging on homemade sandwiches. YUM and healthy.
Instead of candy and processed popcorn, we were indulging on healthy white whole wheat muffins. Bonus points: I have many muffins to freeze and I have a half of a roast to freeze for a future ball night.
The warm sandwiches stay toasty in foil. My son enjoyed his after his game.
Let’s play ball, shall we? We have healthy food from 5:30 to 10 p.m.
Do you pack your own food for after school events?
