A Letter to the Sandwich

Adorable sandwich found here
Dear Sandwich,

We've been friends for a long time.  You were my constant companion in my school lunch.  You are still my go-to pal for a quick meal.  Your fillings may change, but you will always hold a special place in my stomach heart.

That said, we need to talk about your relationship with my younger kids.  You're kinda failing me here, sandwich.

Let's review your performance:

Egg salad:

Grilled cheese:

Soynut butter and honey:

Fluff and soynut butter:


Soynut butter and jelly:

Ok, you're right, there is ONE way all three girls will enjoy your company at lunch.  Now if only we could get them to eat crusts...

Now, sandwich, as tempting as it may be to serve you the same way every day...for weeks...months...years...I can't help but feel an obligation to my children's palates and nutritional intake.  So, it's time for some changes.  No, you're not fired (maybe grilled).  We're just going to have to do some experimenting.  This won't hurt...much!

*Note to readers, #2 has a peanut allergy, which is why we use I.M. Healthy brand soynut butter.

  1. Seriously how did the fluff sandwich only get one thumbs up? It's marshmallow! I didn't know you could go wrong with marshmallow!
