Mini Chicken Shawarma
 &
Waffle Sandwiches

For many of us, fall signifies
getting back into a routine...
A school routine that is...
Just mentioning the phrase
 "Back to School"  
to my 
husband last week, instantly made my stomach
queezy! 
My kids are in University! 
The memory of the craziness of getting 3 kids back to school are still with me years after ~lol~ 
the clothes, books, binders, pens, paper, knapsacks, crayons,
shoes: indoor and outdoor..sheesh the list goes on... 
At the top of this list of course is lunches.
Coming up with 5 days of lunches for 3 kids was and still is daunting...who wants this, who eats that
a n d
all on a budget.
Of course, now that they are older, I could let them make their own...and they do....
or...let them buy it...but,
generally nutrition goes out the door
    so.....  

I thought I would develop an easy go to recipe that takes minutes to put together for younger kids.
It's fun and nutritious and will get their afternoon off to a great start!
I've tucked all kinds of goodness into these
MINI Shawarma's
 but, grown ups can easily make this in larger quantities or larger sizes and 
brown bag it too!
 
You can even make this recipe larger for appetizers at your next get together.
 
You'll need:
 
 3-4 whole wheat mini Pita's
4-5 strips of fully cooked chicken
(this can be leftovers or bought cooked chicken)
2-3 tbsp hummus
2-3 tbsp Tzatziki
3 cherry tomatoes, halved
strips of lettuce
celery sticks
 
Slather the Pita's with hummus and Tzatziki.
Stuff each pita with chicken, lettuce and tomatoes.
 
Waffle Stacks
4 mini whole wheat organic waffles
2 pats of cream cheese, your fave
2 raspberries
drizzle of honey
 
Toast the waffles. 
Place a pat of cheese on 2 of the waffles.
Top each with raspberries and a drizzle of honey.
Sandwich the tops onto the stacks and 
pierce with a toothpick.

Enjoy with love!
