We made this super easy Lenten lunch last Friday, and the kids really loved it! It’s amazing how 30 seconds of work can dazzle kids. This would be a perfect, simple lunch to serve on Good Friday (or Ash Wednesday, or any Friday during Lent really).
This could not have been easier to do. Make your kids some peanutbutter sandwiches- whatever your family likes. (You know, pb & jelly, pb & banana, pb & honey, pb & sugar, pb & scrambled eggs… hey, people put all kinds of things on peanut butter sandwiches!)
Take 2 pretzel sticks. Leave one of them tall, but the second one needs to be
nibbled down a little cut with a sterile knife to make it shorter than the first one. Use a little dab of peanut butter to hold the pieces together like a cross. Make 3 for each sandwich, and stick them into the bread so they stand straight up.
If your child is allergic to peanut butter, I’m sure you have some clever cream cheese recipe or something you can substitute.
Isn’t is hilarious how adding pretzel stick crosses to peanut butter sandwiches actually make them taste better? 😉
Violet made a real mess out of hers, but then again, she always does. At least she didn’t put it in her hair.
What about your family? What do your kids eat on meatless Fridays?Pin It
