Day 20-mmmm..PB and J!

Thought: One of my daily nemesis is making lunches (and dinner too).   It used to be a given that for lunch you got a peanut butter and (maybe) jam sandwich for lunch at school.   With the ban in nuts at schools, making lunches has become a daily Sudoku to solve.

I remember looking forward each time to that swirl of smoothness and sometimes the peanut bits.   Add to it a little touch of sweet jam and a glass of milk and you’ve got the best meal/snack ever!

I don’t think my mother got the memo about spreading out the peanut butter though.  I would have to chew into 2 slices of plain bread to finally get to the epi-center and bang- there it was- squishy, nutty goodness blanketing the inside of my mouth.

I wonder what my kids will remember about their lunches years from now- pizza and drinking boxes???

 Time: 8:30am

Weather: 7c, overcast

Motivation: Went to bed early and so pumped up with energy!

  1. Yeah, Mom’s PB sandwiches weren’t the bomb at all…chomping through two slices of dry bread to get to the peanut butter nugget in the centre was like finding a pot of gold at the end of a very long (and dry) bread-y rainbow.
