School is back in session for my kids, which means it's back to packing lunches for mom! I really do enjoy making lunches for the boys. My oldest, who's taking classes at the community college this semester, loves for me to pack him a lunch a few times a week. He says it's so much healthier, and a lot cheaper! And my youngest, who plays sports about half of the year, loves eating healthy too. He tells me he just can't eat that cafeteria food every day! So just like my parents did for me, I try to create fun and delicious lunches for my guys.

My mom did most of the lunch making when I was growing up, but my dad would occasionally take over the duties. His favorite thing to make me was a peanut butter and cheese sandwich. I know what you are thinking...that sounds gross! But it was actually quite good. I haven't had one in years, but I think I may need to have one again soon!


I make a lot of sandwiches and wraps for my kids, and this roast beef and colby jack cheese sandwich is my newest creation. It's a simple sandwich, but it's a classic and truly delicious. Made with whole wheat bread and Hellmann's Real Mayonnaise, it's healthy too. If you haven't used the new Hellmann's Squeeze bottle yet, I urge you to go out and grab one for yourself! The new bottle is designed to #SqueezeMoreOut without having to shake and bang your bottle and make a mess! And with the clean lock top and precise tip, you can write your kids sweet messages like the one above.

This sandwich truly is a classic. Hellmann's Real Mayonnaise, crispy iceberg lettuce, colby jack cheese and flavorful and tender roast beef come together between two slices of whole wheat bread in perfect unity. 

Add a piece of fruit, some crackers and a dessert to your brown bag, along with your sandwich, and you've got yourself the perfect lunch! As you can see, I also like to leave special notes on my lunch bags, too. I'm sure my boys appreciate that, haha!
