Ham & Cheese Sandwiches

As I will be picking Soeri up at 12 pm again today he only gets one snack box.

At our great bakery we get a great bread every Thursday. This bread is so famous that it has a name: Bernd the Bread! Hey and believe it or not this bread has his own show on the kiddies channel here in Germany! It tastes delicious. Made from whole wheat and rye it also contains flax seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and oat flakes (see pic below).

Today Soeri got ham and cheese sandwiches. I decided to leave the crusts on as they do taste great. Normally he is picky and does not want to see crusts anywhere! I spread his favorite cream cheese first then a slice of Gouda low fat cheese and low fat ham. A bit of fresh crunchy lettuce topped it off. I cut them into triangles, held them together with a toothpick and decorated with juicy cherry tomatoes. I had bought some organic snow peas and just steamed them for a minute, quickly cooling them in ice water so they stay that fresh green and crunchy.

Alternative: Instead of lettuce you can also use Rucola. It gives the whole sandwich a nutty taste.

He got chunks of juicy and sweet honey melon. He loves Melon. As a little treat I put a mini Hanuta, which is chocolate nougat cream with hazelnuts in between two wafers.
