PBJ Sushi

When I want to have a special lunch, I LOVE to pick up some good sushi. The problem is that my kids will eat it, too, and to be honest, sometimes I don't like to share. :) It's expensive!

I found a little "project" that they love just as much and we're both happy...
Introducing PBJ Sushi!
I think they just love smashing bread with a rolling pin...but hey, who wouldn't?!?

You can substitute turkey/cheese, hummus, anything you want. Peanut Butter & Jelly just happens to be a favorite around here.
As a side note, we are working out the logistics on a super-fun community service project for our family to do this year (food-related, of course!:)). It should be worked out next week and I can't wait to tell you all about it! We'll be posting our adventures on it throughout the year.

PBJ Sushi (or "Kid's Mock Sushi")
Sliced Bread
Peanut Butter
(or, your favorite sandwich fillings. Pepperoni and cheese is another favorite of ours)

Lay a slice of bread on a cutting board and let your child roll it flat with a rolling pin or plastic drinking cup. Smashing bread is the best part!!:)

Spread a thin layer of peanut butter and jelly over 2/3 of the bread. You can also cut the crusts off if desired.

Roll it up, starting with the end spread with peanut butter/jelly, and press edges to seal.
Slice with a sharp knife and serve.Little H couldn't wait for the slicing, she devoured her first roll before I could get my hands on it to slice it up!
