BLT Sandwich

BLT’s are a great quick and easy meal for weeknight dinners.  Just add some fruit or a side salad for a full meal.  They are also great for lunch.  Jazz these classic sandwiches up with some sliced avocado or specialty bacon.  If you have a non-tomato eater, replace the tomato with a roasted red pepper.  I call these sandwiches BLPs (Bacon, Lettuce, Pepper).

Adding pesto to canned tuna is a nice change from the common mayonnaise usually used.  I also like adding pine nuts, which is used in the popular Genovese Basil Pesto.  Wrapping the tuna up with some spinach in a burrito wrap offers an easy, portable sandwich.

Mango Mint Iced Tea

Making your own ice tea is easy and will save you a lot of money buying bottled ice tea.  Plus, you can determine how much sugar, if any, to add.  If you want to take your tea on the go, pour some in a Nalgene bottle or water bottle.  You could even use a clean glass jar with a screw top lid.
