Kids will soon be going back to school, which means parents will be going back to making school lunches. We're seeking readers' ideas for thinking outside the box.

Do you have a favorite sandwich or portable meal recipe? Do you have some tips for packing a lunch that won't end up in the trash? We'll run as many as we can find space for in an upcoming Food section.

Recipes and tips can be e-mailed, typed or legibly printed; include your name, city and phone number so we can reach you if we have questions. Recipes must list all ingredients at the beginning of the recipe; give exact measurements and baking temperature and time, and include the number of servings.

Send recipes to Valerie Phillips, food editor, Deseret News, P.O. Box 1257, Salt Lake City, UT 84110. Or e-mail vphillips@desnews.com.
