Back in the day before food allergies banished all peanut products from our house, I discovered a great tip from Clever Dude: Freeze pre-made peanut butter & jelly sandwiches.
It’s a simple concept – take a loaf of bread, make a bunch of sandwiches assembly-line style, bag or wrap them individually, and freeze. The photo you see is from Clever Dude’s how-to post, which is excellent.
For the brief period of time that I was able to do this, it worked fabulously. I can’t imagine anything easier for a school lunch – add some grapes or applesauce, a drink, a napkin and maybe a cookie, and you’re good to go. That should take less than 5 minutes in the morning to get your kid’s lunch ready.
What are your easiest back to school lunches?
