Peanut Butter & Jam Sandwiches
If you have kids
in school, making a month's worth of peanut butter and jam
sandwiches can make making lunches a breeze. Simply toss a
frozen sandwich into the lunchbox in the morning and it will
be perfectly thawed by lunchtime.
Make a few dozen
Two or three loaves
Think variety -
different types of bread (ie. raisin bread one day, whole
wheat bread the next) as well as different types of jam (try
blueberry or orange marmalade rather than just the standard
strawberry) to keep things from getting boring.
Cover one side
of each slice with peanut butter, being sure to go to the
edges. Then put jam on half of the slices, leaving about half
an inch from the edge on all sides. Put the sandwiches together,
and the peanut butter will "seal" the jam inside
and keep them from getting soggy as it thaws. Seal in freezer
bags or use a vacuum sealer.
On lunch day, simply
put a frozen sandwich (straight from the freezer, no need
to thaw before hand) when you make lunches in the morning,
and it will be thawed by morning.
