Valentine's Day Sandwiches

This was a creation of from my 5 year old. Purely her idea, which just goes to show you (Jill, I'm talking to you!), that not *everything* is inspired by Pinterest:)

We took a cookie cutter and used it to make a heart out of her peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I love finding things in the kitchen that my kids can do on their own. Here is my list of age-appropriate kitchen jobs for kids.

Sidenote- apparently it's totally scandalous in the Bay Area to be allowed nuts at school, but it makes life SO much easier on use.

It was a no-waste lunch day (you can see how I make zero-waste lunches here), so I fed the scraps to her sick brother, you know, to avoid any wasting:)

And yes, mom, I did do her hair before we left for school. She was very, very proud of herself.

I just searched for "heart shaped sandwiches" on Pinterest, and it is jam (pun intended)-packed. Don't tell L, though, I don't want to break her sweet heart!

Love it when the kids "invent" a recipe. I bet she's excited to see it on the blog!
