True story. One of my closest friends in grammar school used to bring peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to school every day. My mother never sent me to school with PB & J. Peanut butter was not something that was widely eaten in Spain in the 60’s and 70’s. So I played the role of the Spanish kid, bringing slices of Tortilla Española on Italian bread or exotic cold cut sandwiches to school. But not my buddy. She had peanut butter and jelly… every day! I was secretly a little jealous.
Today my daughters go to a school with a tree nut policy, so I don’t send them in with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. But I do offer it to them at home. Here’s a twist on this classic American recipe that my girls love. I bet your kids will like them, too!
