ii. Pity For PT3
iii. Cheese Tartlets
Woohoo! The first day of the new school year is finally here! Wait a minute! Am I the only one excited about going back to school! Huhu! Do remember that there are many things that a teacher can look forward to when returning to school on a new year; one of the reasons is being able to meet up with friends and gossip after one and a half month of hiatus!
As for me, aside from getting to meet up with friends once again, is the ability to create new recipes to bring to school; not as pot-luck but as lunch box menu. Yumm! For the first day of school, I recycled some croissants and poached chicken which I had used for some kerabu.
To make things easier, I prepared the filling and the salad the night before so that I could assemble the sandwich in a jiffy. And to make things a bit more interesting, I gave the filling a fruitier taste! Plus I made extra to have for dinner later today!
- 4 croissants (split in the middle)
- 1 cup finely chopped poached chicken*
- 1 small carrot, coarsely grated*
- 1 purple onion, sliced into half-moons*
- 1/2 a Granny Smith, grated*
- 1 tbs orange juice concentrate*
- 1 tsp grated orange zest*
- 1/2 tbs lemon juice*
- 1/2 tsp salt*
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper*
- 8 pieces lettuce leaves*
Mix all the filling ingredients (marked *) in a large bowl. I lay the lettuce leaves onto the croissant first before adding the filling. I notice that by doing it this way I tend not to over-fill the sandwich with the filling; less is more no matter how delicious the filling may be! Ready to be packed for lunch!
