Did you know that in the At Home with Martin & Sylvia story "Sticks," everything brother and sister do needs to follow one rule: it must involve sticks.
After several minutes Momma finally came outside with a big tray. Sylvia called, “What is the lunch?”
“Sandwich sticks,” said Momma proudly as she entered the forest. Martin and Sylvia came out of their stick house to investigate.
“What is a sandwich stick?” asked Martin with a smile. He peeked in the tray.
Momma demonstrated, “Sandwiches on a stick – see? Here is the bread, the meat, the vegetables – and you can squirt the mustard over the top.”
Brother and sister investigated, and sure enough, there were all the ingredients of sandwiches but skewered on a thin stick – like a kabob. They laughed and licked their lips.
In honor of Martin and Sylvia, we were inspired to take an everyday lunch and turn it into a stick-full and fun meal.
Sandwich on a Stick
Ingredients that we used
french bread smoked turkey (nitrate-free) pickles red pepper lettuce raw cheddar cheese wooden skewers
tomatoes cucumbers or any vegetable you can pop on a skewer sandwich bread tofu or tempeh nut butters any variety of cheese home-cooked turkey or chicken
Cut the ingredients into skewer-able pieces, and slide them onto the sticks in varying patterns. Use small cookie cutters for ultra-clever effects.
