LUNCH MADE INTERESTING
It's back-to-school time and Sharon Thompson of the Lexington (Ky.) Herald-Leader has some tips for jazzing up your child's school lunches, including this one: The Checkerboard Turkey Sandwich.
1 slice whole-wheat bread
1 tablespoon Philadelphia Cream Cheese spread
3 slices deli fresh, oven-roasted turkey breast
3 slices tomato
1 slice white bread
Spread wheat bread with cream cheese spread; top with turkey, tomatoes and white bread. Cut sandwich into 3 horizontal strips, then 3 vertical strips to make 9 squares. Turn 4 or 5 of the squares upside down. Arrange squares, alternating colors as needed, to resemble a checkerboard.
