With everyone focused on the new school year, you have to start thinking about filling lunch boxes. If your school doesn't offer a hot lunch, or if you would rather control what your child eats, lunch box menus are in your future. This easy lunch menu for four people is around $8.00.

Lunches are much less expensive than dinners, so you can use more fun ingredients. To jazz up a sandwich, serve it on unusual bread. Put a small amount of expensive fruit into a salad, or offer special toppings for hot soup.

This menu is quick and easy, delicious and inexpensive. Make it part of your lunch rotation.
