it was yummy, although the final result was not exciting enough to photograph. just looked like...well, rice. heh.
the hub's been under the weather for the last couple of days, poor baby. and he wasn't much in the mood for dinner last night. so with the teen not particularly hungry and the bean willing to eat pretty much anything i put in front of her at the moment, i decided to make something i haven't had in years: grilled peanut butter & jelly sandwiches.
you take this:
stick it with some of this:
smear a bit of this on the outside:
toss it on the griddle for a few minutes on each side, and you end up with this lovely, warm, decadent gooeyness:
it's basically a grilled cheese sandwich, only with PB&J instead. i could just use toasted bread, but it's not the same. and to complete my random, utterly ridiculous meal, i added some...TOTS!
i was one happy camper. i gave the bean pieces of sandwich, a few tots, a couple of baked chicken nuggets, a piece of string cheese, some snapeas, and a cup of milk, and we went to town. the teen had a plate just like mine, and we all munched happily together.
oh, i have another quickie video to share. the bean as the mini talking bag lady:
i've decided that my newest materialistic desire is this thing. of course, i can't decide which one i like best:
the only videos i have are the shitty ones i've shot with the ancient point-and-shoot. of course, we all know that even with primo equipment, i suck at the whole photography thing, but i like to think that having good products to play with helps at least a little.
