Dinner for an 8-Year-Old

Dinner tonight was fit for an 8-year-old.

I enjoyed a peanut butter and jelly sandwich made with Skippy Natural peanut butter and Polaner blueberry fruit spread.

I cut my pb&j into triangles to really hammer-home the childhood theme of this dinner. πŸ˜€

On the side I enjoyed a cup of fresh blueberries and a small bowl of Smartfood white cheddar popcorn.

Ryan and I wanted to keep dinner nice and simple tonight because he is still in bachelor cruise-recovery mode and I’m enjoying layin’ around on the couch with him since I missed his handsome face!

I have a feelin’ we’ll be hittin’ the hay a little early tonight.

Oh, and just FYI for all you JTT fans out there, Man of the House is on right now. πŸ˜‰

  3. Aww the pb&j is soooo cute!!!! I have a serious addiction to anything peanut buttery and/or chocolatey!!=D Half the time I don’t even bother with the jelly and just have a pb sandwich……..or pb and apple……….or pb and banana, you get the picture. Anyway, I LOVE this blog and first started reading it because of the fact that it’s got peanut butter in the name =D

  20. Hi Julie!
    Just wanted to say that my mom and I made your pancakes made with greek yogurt. We added in some fresh Maine blueberries too. Delish! Keep those recipes coming! πŸ™‚

  21. Oooh, I forgot to add: I’m curious about your protein mix that you add to your smoothies and recipes. Maybe a little tutorial on the purpose/benefits of it??? I’m not up to speed on that sort of thing. Thanks!

  22. Oh Man of the House.. brings me back to the days when I was hard core in love with JTT… loved his raspy little voice!

  23. Would it be wrong if I said I still had my JTT posters on my wall? No I’m just kidding! But for real I for sure used to have posters of him and Devon Sawa when I was younger!

  24. I love Man Of the House. One of my favorite movies set in my hometown!
