The Sandwich Buffet

Posted by Sandra on August 16, 2008

I was thinking today about the Sandwich Buffet… the quick lunchtime meal for those of us with a horde of children…

Laying out the wheat bread, then the cheeses, the three or four different meats, the peanut butter, and the jelly… and on the days Justus wants, the honey, for his PB & Honey Sandwiches…

I stack and spread to each person’s specific request…. usually just cheese for Autumn, Justus loves his cold Honey Ham & Cheese, Ayla scarfs up her peanut butter & jelly, and Brett digs his roast beef or sometimes grilled cheese…

Then I was thinking about how calming, how soothing it is to stand at the bar and make these simple meals for my kids… and usually visiting neighborhood kids too… and how much I really enjoy it.

Sigh.  The summer’s almost over.  The Sandwich Buffets will be fewer and farther between.  I enjoy the Sandwich Buffet.  Maybe I should integrate that into a dinner once a week or so…

    Just kinda curious if Ayla is eating a whole sandwich yet? Alexz (my 7 month old) loves her mayo sandwiches but pb&j isn’t her fave…yet. She gets annoyed with the stickiness of the pb 🙂

    She’s eating half sandwiches. Basically, I take one piece of bread, spread the peanut butter on one side, the jelly on the other, and smash it as flat as I can… then I cut it into strips and she goes to town on it! 😀
