  • Back to School Lunch Tip: Freeze PB&J Sandwiches


    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?


    1. great idea!

      Love it! How about Sunflower butter, Cashew butter or almond butter? YUM! I have even heard of Pistachio butter, but I've never had it. Sounds so good.
