Turkey, Cheese, Avocado and Cucumber Pinwheels

As promised, here is another lunch idea for the little ones (it took a bit longer, I know). That in no way though, means that I haven’t been on the search for ideas. No, no, I’ve been busy and found quite a bit of inspiration on Pinterest. Once I actually get around to trying out the recipes and not just pinning them, I will report back. Why do I feel like I am in trouble? :)

Turkey, Cheese, Avocado and Cucumber Pinwheels

These pinwheels were actually just something I made randomly to use up stuff we had in the fridge, but they turned out to be one of Arik’s favorite lunches. Now we have to have these at least 3 times a week or else…  So I wanted to be sure to share this simple alternative to a sandwich with you all. Sometimes I don’t use avocado, or I’ll use tomato instead of cucumber, or both; as you can see there is no real set way to make these, so you can just let your creative juices flow. Enjoy!

  1. I made these with a laughing cow cream cheese mixed with chopped cucumber as the spread. It was tasty and held up well in my lunch box.
