UBC Day 2- National PB&J day!!

April 2nd is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day!!!
(I am sick and waiting on adoption news, so humor me with this silly post.)

Now in our family, the PB&J is a big deal. We make homemade lunches 5 days a week for at least 4 people. Since the girls go to private school, we have the choice to make their lunch every day or pay about $5 a day, in advance for lunches. There is no, "I don't feel like making lunch today, so here's some money."
And then there's Tim, whose office is his truck, so he requires a lunch. And then on the days that Vivian and I are out of the house for lunch, we also require a lunch.


PB&J is our go to sandwich.We do get creative with the jelly and buy different varieties. I believe black cherry is the fav at the moment.

Now, we do have one child who has thrown a wrench in the plan and doesn't like peanut butter. Seriously, what's not to like? So for her, we have to be more creative.

We also doll out peanut butter on a spoon occasionally for snacks. And we can't forget the PB&J crackers that I found last week. They were a big hit with the PB lovers.

We also recently made our own peanut butter with the Vita Mix. I will tell you more about our adventures with that in another post. It's AMAZING!!!!
