Thursday Lunch Boxes

So you say that your kids want PB&J everyday? You can still offer them some variety. Thursday, my kids (and husband) are taking PB&J "Sushi" Rolls.

To make the peanut butter & jelly "sushi" rolls: Trim the crusts off of your bread slices. Roll flat with a rolling pin. Spread peanut butter thinly all the way to the edges. Smear a little bit of jelly over the peanut butter. Roll tightly. Slice carefully.

The girls are taking the same lunch Thursday. PB&J "Sushi" Rolls; TLC Country Cheddar crackers; Grapes & Asian Pear; and French Vanilla Yogurt with homemade granola. They're bringing orange juice to drink. Bayberry's yogurt has a lid. Fancy's will be encased in plastic wrap, then lidded, to ensure its safe arrival at the cafeteria table.

These are the last kids' lunches of the school week. We have a four-day weekend. See you Monday with another lunch!


  1. Love the idea of PB&J sushi. We will defiantly have to try this technique, thanks tons for sharing!

  2. One idea I've read recently is using the Press and Seal stuff for covering items that can leak/spill. Instead of wrapping so much in saran wrap, you can cut the size you need and seal it shut. I bought some, haven't used it yet, but can't wait to make lunch and try it out.

  3. Your lunches are so stinkin' creative! Love it! I nominated you for a bloggy award....feel free to stop by my blog and claim it!

  4. Love the "sushi roll" idea! Made it for my kids with turkey pepperoni and cream cheese...they loved it!

  5. LOVE that sushi roll idea! I am sooooo stealing it! I also would love the recipe for the granola!!
