Peanut Butter and Jelly

Today was Eat Lunch With Your Kid Day at school. In honor of Thanksgiving next week, turkey and stuffing were offered, along with some of the usual sides. As a vegetarian, I opted for the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It reminded me of why I haven't eaten a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in years. Did you know that schools now serve pre-packaged peanut butter sandwiches that are round, with sealed edges? I guess it's easier for little hands that way, since the insides don't leak out. But it sure looks unnatural.

I suspect it's easier for the staff to pop a pre-made sammich out of the freezer than to actually MAKE a sandwich themselves.

Don't knock the PB&J!

I usually have a PB&J every day for lunch - I love them! However those Uncrustables brand PB&J's (the round ones with sealed edges) are disgusting and better off left alone. For me, I prefer crunchy SKippy peanut butter and strawberry jelly on whole wheat bread. Thing 1 prefers the same except with creamy peanut butter and Thing 2 will only eat jelly sandwiches ("No butter" he says.)
