What's in Henry's lunchbox today?
It's hard to be creative when you pack lunch 6 days a week.
I don't buy deli meat, so it's leftovers (I always make extra), a tuna sandwich, a veggie wrap or PBJ.
Today's lunch is straight from the fridge.
Start with good Italian ciabatta (we have great bread here in the NJ/NYC metro area).
Spread the bread w/ store bought pesto.
Slice a ball of fresh mozzarella packed in water. Lay the slices on the pesto.
Snip 4 basil leaves from your plant (if you have one!).
Next, a slice of a ripe tomato or a roasted red pepper (from the jar is fine),
and last, top with a handful of baby arugula.
Cover with the other pesto bread slice, and a Caprese sandwich is born.
Cover with foil wrap and pack in the lunchbox.
