Is your lunch Lola approved? #lolatalks #ad

::Momma Disclosure:: {This is not a compensated post. I was gifted an Oscar Mayer cutting board, a gift card and coupons to purchase the Oscar Mayer Deli meats. All statements below and opinions are my own and are true and honest.}

The first day of school has already come for many but for most next week is their first day! My children are in daycare so we go to school year-round, some days coming up with a good and healthy lunch becomes a challenge without being so repetitive. Que le daras a tus ninos para comer despues de la escuela, or pack for their lunch on the first day of school?

Whatever it is, I would say it better be Lola approved! Who is Lola you may ask? Surely you have seen her on the new and very clever  Oscar Mayer commercials as  la abuela que todo lo dice! Her transparent way of being is enlightening and truthful! Nothing wrong with a little truth. She is becoming a popular guest in our home, I love her commercials and let me tell you she reminds me very much of my very openly spoken Mexican Abuelita!

These days between late night meetings, afternoon soccer practice and oh yes more recently plumbing problems in my house we are constantly seeking a quick and easy lunch or dinner for my family! The deli style meats from Oscar Mayer are my favorite to make tasty homemade sandwiches for a quick and easy lunch for my kids to take to school or to enjoy after a long day of learning and activities.

These sandwiches would also make for a great pot-luck dish to take to work or for your next Book Club get together! The freshness of the deli style cut meats and their delicious taste gets me an A+ in the kitchen every time!  Did I mention how affordable they are and how that to us is Hubby Approved? For a family of 4 who is always on a budget my Husband loves the deal with freshness and tasty deli meats from Oscar Mayer!

On this day since we were having problems with our kitchen plumbing we needed a easy, light cooking alternative. I took the awesome Oscar Mayer recipes for these dos sandwiches and gave them my own Mexican Momma twist here is what we prepared and what you will need to recreate in your home:


Sandwich for the kids:

-Wheat Buns

-A couple of lettuce pieces cut into thin slices

-About 3 to 4 slices of the Oven Roasted Turkey Breast

-Kraft Tuscan House Italian dressing


-Cut wheat buns in half, place in toaster or oven until toasted

-I sliced the lettuce very thin and placed it in a bowl and mixed in about a spoonful of the Italian dressing, I mixed the two

-Once my bread was toasted I added the lettuce with the dressing on bottom half of bun, then I added slice of Kraft Singles cheese {not shown above}, then I added the turkey deli meat on top. And done!

Sandwich of the grown-ups:

-Wheat Sesame seed buns

-Slices of Avocado

-Thin slices of cucumber

-A can of chipotle pepper in adobo sauce

-Thin slices of Jalapenos {Only a few depending on how spicy you want your sandwich}

-About 6 slices of the Fresh Smoked Ham


-Cut wheat buns in half, place in toaster or oven until toasted

-Once bread was toasted I added a slice of Kraft Singles cheese and about 3 slices of the Smoked Ham.

-Then I added my thin slices of cucumbers about 3 medium size slices very thin, my thin sliced jalapenos about 2 or 3, some slices of avocado about 3 or 4, then on top I added a little of the chipotle sauce and peppers, and to top it off I added some more ham!


While deep in afterschool conversation my kids enjoyed their delicious sandwiches! My Son suggested we add a pickle to his dinner, I paired their plate with carrots and then a pickle and for the adults some spicy chips!
