Back to school shopping includes grocery shopping at our house. I do shop differently at the grocery store when school is in session. We buy a lot more conveniently packed items. We had a Market District/Giant Eagle store open in our area recently. It makes shopping convenient since they have a variety of options available for packing school lunches.

You have probably heard me state before that my girls go to a non-traditional classical education school. They attend school three days a week and homeschool the other two. On those days at home, I like to make the day a bit special by serving a hot lunch. One of the recipes we will use this year is Stuffed Cheese Dumplings or Pizza Dumplings. I stumbled across the idea for this recipe and my daughters and I made the recipe. They both enjoy helping and request them often. It is a great way to include the girls in the kitchen while teaching life skills.
convenient packs for lunch
- Roll of refrigerator biscuits
- String Cheese
- Pepperoni (optional)
- Garlic powder

Preheat oven to temperature designated on the biscuit package. (ours was 350 degrees)
Place foil on a cookie sheet and flatten the biscuits.
Cut the string cheese with kitchen scissors to fit the biscuits.
(One package cut down to three pieces for us) Place the Pepperoni if desired.
Cover the ingredients with the biscuit. Rolling them into a ball makes them look like Dim Sum!
Melt the butter and add Garlic powder and Italian seasoning to taste.
Approx. 1 Tbsp of butter and 1/4 tsp of garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Paint this mixture onto the biscuits.
Bake in the oven for the time stated on the biscuit package. (Ours was 15 - 17 minutes)
