Today at the Homeschool Village, the link up is all about creative lunch times. Hop over to see what other moms like to make for lunch. A couple of weeks ago, I posted about how my kids like to play McDonald's at lunchtime. I'd like to share another lunchtime favorite with you -- it's a new twist on everyone's favorite, the peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
A little bit of background: I grew up in South Florida in a transplanted family from the midwest. My father did some cooking - mostly breakfasts, grilling out, and one other favorite of mine, the Grilled Peanut Butter and Jelly! The best meal was always a grilled pb&j, Fritos, and a chocolate malt. So so good. In fact, a couple of years ago when I had surgery and my parents came to help at my house, the first meal I ate after coming home was my dad's specialty - talk about comfort food!
I've passed this love down to my children and like to make grilled PB&Js for them, mostly when it's cold outside. I'll talk you through it:
Get out your favorite Peanut Butter and Jelly:
Grill until toasted brown and a little of the peanut butter and jelly is oozing out:
Perfect! While we were enjoying this outside a neighbor drove by and asked what we were eating. He said his favorite grilled sandwich is a grilled Pimiento and Cheese! Now, there's something to try as well.
Doesn't this look like a happy lunch customer?
