This is one of those enlightened Mom moments. Feel free to take a second and just relish in it. I can’t tell you how many times we have a last minute trip to the park, or we are running out the door to go to the store and I hear, “MOM….I’m HUNGRY!!!” I have never made my kids go hungry, but they pick the darndest times to decide they need something to eat.
Now, as all moms know, peanut butter and jelly is the go to quick sandwich. Almost every kid loves it, and you cover protein, grain, and fruit in a single blow. What if I told you, you could have sandwiches ready to go in just minutes?! No, you don’t have to pay for those expensive Uncrustables. ~Those people must make a fortune!~
Just set up an assembly line with peanut butter, bread, jelly, and some sandwich bags. Mind boggling…I know. I stood at the kitchen table and in about 5 minutes made 10-15 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Popped them in their ziplocs, and into the door of the freezer. I just did this about 4 days ago, and it has already saved me on a couple occasions. In fact, I may have to make some more because I think my hubby found our sandwich stash.
The kids love these even more right now because I just made our own freezer jam, and they are in love with it!
You can even have the kids make them. They love to help in the kitchen, and you can’t really mess up a PB&J. I cut mine in half because my 4 year old rarely eats an entire sandwich. That way I am good to go either way!
Do you have a great Kitchen Short Cut?
