Tuesday nights are usually filled with exhaustion after the weekend activities, getting through Monday which usually involves several extra-curricular activities for the kids and well…Monday. As you may recall I plan most of my meals in advance and do the majority of the prep work ahead of time to make weeknight dinners less of a chore and more fun for all. Tuesday night is usually our designated leftover night. In my house this translates into “I’m going to clean out the refrigerator tomorrow, if you want it eat it!” There is rarely enough of any particular meal for everyone to eat the same thing so everyone gets to pick what they want to eat and it’s there’s. Needless to say, Tuesday dinner is always interesting. With two teenagers and a six year old in the house the discussions over who is going to eat what are always interesting. It’s kind of amusing to watch your kids argue over leftovers!
Tonight much to my surprise…I had no leftovers. So I decided to keep with the tradition and let everyone pick what they wanted, only tonight they had a choice regarding what kind of grilled sandwich they wanted. The overwhelming top choice was grilled peanut butter and jelly. If you haven’t had the opportunity to taste this delicious take on a childhood staple I highly encourage you to try one soon. I won’t provide a recipe as I am sure you are all aware of how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I will encourage you to use real butter, it is so much better than the fake stuff.
