When I was younger, I would start getting excited about the back-to-school season around the end of July. I loved going to the store with my parents to pick out the coolest school supplies, the most fashionable clothes and the most delicious snacks for my lunch box.
I remember once school started my dad would get up early every morning to make my lunch. Some days I would get a turkey and cheese sandwich, and other days I would get my favorite, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. My favorite part of my dad making my lunch was that each day my sandwich would be cut into a different shape. I loved opening my lunch box to see what kind of design was cut into my sandwich.
If your kids love PB&J sandwiches, I highly suggest trying this recipe: PB&J sushi rolls. It’s easy to make and it brings variety to your kid’s lunch.
PB&J sushi rolls
Prep Time: 10 minutes
4 slices whole wheat bread, crust removed
1/4 cup jam
1/4 cup peanut butter
Press down on bread to flatten. Spread about 1 tablespoon of jam and peanut butter on each slice of bread. Starting at one edge, slowly roll the bread tightly. Slice into rolls about 2 inches wide, cleaning the knife between each cut to separate rolls neatly.
