Honestly, this is actually my absolute TOP go-to meal for baseball season! When the boys are playing travel baseball we can be at the ball park all…..day……long.

I refuse to eat or let my kids fill up on concession stand food! And its too expensive to eat out every meal for every tournament during every weekend.  I am sure many of you can relate!

It’s much healthier and more affordable to pack some snacks as well as at least one meal to bring with us. Of course, I can always throw in some sandwiches BUT my kids get so tired of eating another plain-ol’ sandwich!

A variation on the classic sandwich is to make sub sandwiches…it seems that just a bit of variety in the bread and adding some toppings makes our family feel like we are eating a more filling meal and everyone loves them IF I use Jimmy John’s bread!

A few years back I discovered that you can buy sub bread from Jimmy John’s. Then I discovered that the large stack of bread that sets on the the counter is day-old bread and you can buy it for only $.45/loaf!

Needless to say, we take full advantage of this steal! {Did I mention that my husband drives by a Jimmy John’s on his way home from work…so he can grab it whenever we are in need!}

I cut the loaves into the sub-size that each of my kiddos prefers.

We are typically always well-stocked on a variety of lunch meat, cheeses, condiments and other toppings. Because of this, it’s last minute meal we can make on the fly…for a fraction of the cost of eating out.
