P B & J a whole new way…
When I was about 12, my mother had remarried and we moved back to the house she rented out since I was about 6. My parents, esp mom, were extremely organized. Everything was packed weeks in advance in boxes marked on three sides; even the meals were planned out to the very day of moving. I think we had some catsup, mustard and pickles left. The renter (Patricia B, boyfriend and three kids) however were still packing when we arrived to take posession of the property. The refrigerator was on the front porch, plugged in, and was the last thing on their moving van. Full of food, just like it would be on any regular day. Open milk cartons, bowls of liquids covered only with foil or plastic wrap…. and off they went for a 6 hour trip to Traverse City. I can't imagine the mess it would be inside after many miles of travel over bumpy country roads and up and down very steep hills. She wasn't much of a housekeeper either, but after this story I'm sure that is not a surprise....
However, she was a very good cook and she introduced us to this:
Grilled Peanut Butter & Jelly
Make your favorite way, and grill as you would a grilled cheese sandwich (spread soft butter or margarine on both sides and grill) Don't overfill either, as the PB & J become more liquid as they heat up. This sounds really simple but I think you'll be surprised how good it is.
Caution the insides get really hot, so allow to cool before eating.
I don't know any kid that doesn't like this and most adults would enjoy occasionally.
