PB & J Sliders

Breakfast was tasty (homemade Belgian waffles with strawberries, syrup and whipped cream), but let’s speed through that and get to my latest brainstorm…

Belgian Waffles with Sliced Strawberries, Whipped Cream and Syrup

PBF Breakthrough

I’m sure you’ve heard of sliders… little mini hamburgers or pulled pork sandwiches often served at restaurants as appetizers?

I think I may be getting wiser in my (almost) old age (I’ll be 25 on Tuesday), because I had a brainstorm today!

PB & J Sliders

Peanut butter and jelly sliders!!!

I know I’m not the first (or likely the thousandth) person whose thought of this, but they were new to me and that’s all that counts, right?

My parents had a bunch of fresh mini deli rolls on hand and I decided to make myself pb & j sliders for lunch.


The fresh, doughy rolls almost outshined the peanut butter…  But let’s be real, that’s not exactly possible.

During the making of the sliders, approximately three peanut butter fingers occurred.


(Note: Yes, I look extremely awkward. This picture was taken with a self timer.)

I also really liked the jelly my mom had on hand in the fridge.

Sarabeth Jelly

I am typically a grape jelly kind of girl, but really liked the blueberry cherry flavor of Sarabeth’s jelly. Plus, the ingredient list was 100 percent recognizable.


With my sliders I enjoyed an orange, a handful of walnuts and two watermelon Twizzlers.

Before lunch we spent time in the backyard, laying out on the dock and enjoying the sunshine.


Unfortunately the water was too choppy to take the boat out. 😦

We still managed to enjoy the sun though and Sadie got to do some serious lizard hunting.

"Ooooh Liiiizards... Where ARE You???"

Lizard Hunter Extraordinaire

Now we’re about to watch as Ryan tests out his new scuba gear in our pool.

This should be entertaining!!! 😀
