This sandwich recipe uses peanut butter and Nutella; Recipe for a grilled sandwich with bananas, peanut butter, and chocolate hazelnut spread, a delicious after school snack.
I have this pet peeve. Every time I tell my kids I’m running a quick errand and I will be home in 10 minutes, they call me.
Hippie Chick is notorious for this. She will literally ignore me for hours, and the minute I leave the house, she has some pressing urgent issue to discuss with me that cannot wait 5 more minutes.
The minute I see the word “HOME” on my phone screen, I answer the phone this way:
Me: You better be bleeding out your eyes.
Hippie Chick: Uhhh…. Mom? I’m hungry. Can I have an apple?
Me: This can’t wait 2 and a half minutes until I get home?
These calls are basically always because they are hungry.
But I got the jump on them this time. THIS time, I made the snacks BEFORE they got home from school. Take that, kids.
I can’t really claim this sandwich idea as my own. This baby is the brainchild of my talented cousin. I have these awesome cousins who live all over the country. It’s lucky we have facebook, or I would have a tough time connecting with them.
She told me in a Facebook post about her delicious grilled PB&J sandwiches, with bananas and chocolate chips. I mean, let’s face it, the idea is brilliant. I did make some changes, mostly because I’m lazy.
First, I eighty-sixed the jam, partly because I wasn’t into that part of the idea, but mostly because I didn’t have any in the pantry. Second, I traded out the chocolate chips for Nutella.
In retrospect, that part may not have been such a good idea, because I basically gain weight every time there’s Nutella in the house. The stuff is SO deliciously evil.
But, on the bright side, I earned myself 10 minutes of uninterrupted errand running. (i.e. going to the gas station for Diet Coke.) I hope.
Eat your sandwich, children. And don’t call me.
