Holy crap – This is the best thing ever!
So, often I wonder if I’ve happened onto something super awesome and must spread the word; or if I’m simply the last to know…?
This is one of those times. We were at the Great Wolf Lodge over the weekend with our good friends Erin, Mark, and their son. We had dinner in the restaurant one night, which resulted in a fantastic discovery. I love peanut butter (not the discovery). I ordered something that looked intriguing. It was on the adult menu. Peanut butter was the main ingredient. It was rad.
So, I recreated it for the girls the next day at home. Basically, you just make a grilled cheese sandwich, but instead of putting cheese inside, you put peanut butter inside. Cut the sandwich so it’s dip-able and serve with homemade strawberry jelly (or whatever your favorite “jelly” item is). I used soy sauce dishes which turned out to be the perfect depth and size for jelly dipping.
The girls approved – notice M’s sandwich up top is nearly gone! (That’s a dried mango on her plate, not peanut butter poo – it doesn’t even ooze out of the sandwiches, I swear.) Of course, if you’re 20 months of age, it seems to make way more sense to simply bypass the sandwich altogether (once it’s been sufficiently mangled by your dimply hands) and eat the jelly. First by the fingerful…
…and then possibly by the handful.
We may never have cold peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at our house again. Try it and enjoy!
