It’s time to go back to school, which means another year of crumpled brown bags full of same-old-same-oldâ€¦ just enough to make it through the day. Whether you’re packing up lunch for your kids, or you’re just a kid a heart, we have a few ideas to make your mid-day meal something to look forward to.
Want more lunch ideas? More importanly, do you want to win some free cheese? Need we even ask?! Check out our â€œWhat’s in Your Lunchbox?â€ Pintrest contest to find new ideas, and share your own. You can also enter to win a $100 Murray’s Gift Card!
1. Ham Sandwich, The “Do Over”
Just say â€œNOâ€ to those nasty ham sandwiches. There’s nothing worse than finally sitting down to lunch and biting into a flavorless, floppy sandwich. At Murray’s, we reject the idea that the old brown bag classic has to be so darn dull. Jazz it up with the king of deli meats Mortadella, smear on some sinfully spicy Lusty Monk mustard and then bring it all together with a few crisp Rick’s Picks Pickles.
2.Mac and Cheese, PLEASE
Got a little more time on your hands? Pick up a Murray’s Mac & Cheese kit to do something extra special for that lunch break. Everything’s included to help you make a bangin’ mac, but if you’re looking for an easy way out, we’ve also got it pre-made for you. Just heat and serve!
3. Snack Emergency
EMERGENCY! It’s 2:30 and I’m HANGRY!! Chill out, sit back, and tear into the Murray’s â€œEmergency Snack Supply.â€ Full of filling munchies that will ward of the mid-afternoon pangs, this collection is there when you need a little bit of brain food, or a sweet treat to make it through the day!
Got a sweet tooth, but looking for something a little bit different than your average Oreo? Try Murray’s classic sweet treat â€“ grab a wedge of an alpine cheese, Comte or Challerhocker work great, and your favorite Bee Raw honey and get dippin’. You can also try something a little bit nontraditional with Bayley Hazen Blue and a piece of Mast Brothers chocolate. While it sounds odd, the deep creamy nuttiness of the blue pairs perfectly with this dark, rich chocolate!
