It is already Saturday.  I had intended to post more this week, but...

I get to spend the afternoons with my grandsons three days a week.  I love watching them play, and playing with them.
Lunch can be a pain. I  get bored with "mac n cheese, ramen noodles and pnut butter sandwiches", but they are both picky.  I love finding something new to feed them. 
This recipe combines a couple of favourites-with a twist.  This "recipe" is from the DESERET NEWS by J.M. Hirsch.  This recipe is simple and uses what I already have. 


Make your pnut butter and jam/jelly sandwiches.  Use a sandwich cutter to make them cute.  (I used the train from WILLIAMS-SONOMA.  Thanks Debbie.  And Peggy :)
Dip sandwiches into french toast egg mix.  (I used 3 eggs, 2 cups of milk, a drop of vanilla and a few twists of fresh ground cinnamon.  Remind me to tell you more about the cinnamon later.  You can also whisk in a tablespoon or 2 of BISQUICK.)

Dip both sides of each sandwich in the batter and cook on both sides in a sprayed or buttered skillet.  Yea, french toast.

The boys really liked this.  Layne had me make another one for him.  It's a comfort food.  With a twist.

Then I tried a few other ideas.  I cooked a couple in the waffle iron.  This worked better than stove top, because it sealed the sandwiches.  But the insides leaked out leaving a slow burning mess.
I still had bread and batter, so I dipped bread just in the batter and then cooked it in the waffle iron.  Worked great.  BUT WHY?

(I use tea balls or mesh strainers for sprinkling powdered sugar.  Cute Mickey one, huh?)
Layne had lots of fun watching/helping me make this.

The boys loved this! I prefer regulary peanut butter and jelly, but it was great trying something new.
