Friday Lunchbox #17

Today's Lunchbox:

Morning Tea:  Fresh orange pieces, homemade gingerbread biscuits
Lunch:  Sweet and Savoury Jaffles - Savoury is "vegetarian pizza" with herbed tomato paste, cheddar cheese, corn kernels, green capsicum, tomato and kalamata olives in wholemeal bread.  Sweet is "custard and cinnamon apple pie" with vanilla custard, pie apple and cinnamon sugar in homemade fruit bread.
Drink: Iced water

Miss Six is on a jaffle jag at the moment and has asked for jaffles every day this week.  She calls them "baffles" which is way too cute for me to want to correct her just yet.  So I've had to get quite creative with the fillings.  The great thing about todays jaffles is that I get the other halves of both jaffles for my own lunch - yum!  Also, gingerbread is her most favourite kind of biscuit - this is the very first time I've ever iced them though and it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be!  I used a "royal icing" which is basically whipped egg white, icing sugar, a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkle of cream of tartar (I'd link to a recipe but I'm feeling a bit lazy...just Google it!).  It set beautifully.  I did end up with piping-bag-cramp though, which I'm still recovering from!

Have an awesome weekend, everyone!!


  1. I think I might make myself some savoury jaffles for wunch today. You're very clever.

  2. That mixed sandwich looks awesome.
    I love the sweet jaffles. I made them once with pastry and my husband took them to work. People got a surprise because it's not what they expect them to taste like. They are expecting a savoury sandwich.

  3. Gracious, I just ate my two and the pizza one tasted EXACTLY like pizza - but seeing as I used only a little cheese it would have been much lower in fat - brilliant for all those dieters out there! And the apple one was DIVINE...I am definately making these again, Miss Six may have to fight me for them!

  4. I've never thought about jaffle in the lunch box. Great idea. Thanks


  5. I've never heard of a jaffle before but I want one. They look so good.

  6. I wish you put together my lunchbox every friday!! I have no imagination when it comes to food! Cheese sandwich every day for me - haha! Kate:)
