hooray, hooray, hooray...we found out yesterday that david did INDEED successfully match to both residency programs! hooray! he is so relieved to know that he is REALLY able to become a radiologist. doesn't that sound so grown up? hardly seems like we are ready for such a grown up life! two more days of waiting until our match placements are unveiled! we are so excited! now on to dinner...
there is something about "grilling" a sandwich that makes it so indulgent. can you imagine serving a regular ol' peanut butter and jelly sandwich for dinner? nope. but, grilling elevates it to a new level, turning it into an acceptable entree for your family's dinner table and making it a most delicious treat.
peanut butter & jelly...grilled! assemble peanut butter and jelly sandwich with 2 slices of bread (i prefer a soft honey wheat for jack and i, david always likes white), 2-3 tablespoons of a nut or seed butter (jack is still not eating nuts. not until he turns two. so, he uses sunflower seed butter and we use a natural peanut butter), and 1 tablespoon of jam. butter the outside of the sandwich on both sides. "grill" the sandwich in a skillet on each side for 2 minutes over medium-high heat until it has browned.
serve with a fresh fruit salad and homemade baked potato wedges (baked fries). enjoy your tasty dinner!
