PB&J bread rollups and a few snowmen...

If you tuned in to the last post, then you know that we were super duper excited over the prospect of snow. Well, we didn't wake up to the winter wonderland like we had hoped. Nope! Nada! None! I guess I really should be glad that we don't live in a place where a foot of snow every week is the norm. But, a nice healthy snowfall here in the M-town sure would be welcome. My little guy has never even had the chance to build a snowman. Now ice....that's a different story! We get several good icings every winter. Doesn't really garner the same amount of excitement from the kiddos, though. So, there's a few snowmen in the lunch today to perhaps help Mother Nature along.

I love these cute bread rollups. They are super simple to do. I cut the crusts off a slice of bread. (Don't throw them out. Turn them into bread crumbs and use them to make meatballs or meatloaf.) Then, using the heel of your hand, flatten the bread as much as possible. Yep, pound the dippidy doo out of the bread. Spread the peanut butter (or nut butter of choice) from edge to edge, and then spread the jelly (or fruit spread of choice) leaving about a half inch on one edge free of the jelly. Then roll the bread toward the jelly free edge. Easy peasy lemon squeezey!!

  • Babybel cheese- I cut a snowman shape from the cheese wax with a small snowman shaped cutter.
  • baby carrots with Ranch dressing in the green cup

Some of the things, or similar things, that I used to make this lunch:
