PB&B Sammiches (158)

I'm at home all morning with Baby Girl as she woke up with a fever. This afternoon we're having my goodbye coffee hour at work, so I have to go in at lunchtime.

The OOT forum at Allakhazam is having this nut challenge in posts, so I decided to play by doing some peanut butter and mashed blackberry sandwiches. I'd been thinking about this during the week and finally today had a good opportunity to do a peanut butter bento!

I cut each slice out first; 6 gingerbread men and 6 trees. Then I put the peanut butter on both sides, then the mashed blackberries went in the middle. My very nice Aunty Cheryl sent us her yearly batch of yummy Lilikoi and Jaboticaba Jelly jars and I wanted to use it, but my blackberries are getting rotten already, so I wanted to use as many as possible. Thank you Aunty!! We had just run out of grape jelly!!

On the side I have more blackberries and then some sliced apple cut out with more Christmas cookie cutters in the shapes of angels, holly leaves, and candy canes. I should have been more creative and made the candy canes out of the skin parts and then made stripes, but I got a little lazy halfway through. Maybe next time!!

I have not eating berries in sooo long. Looks really nice.

You are just taunting us with those ripe blackberries aren't you?

And if this lunch is the least bit lazy, I didn't notice. Though the candy cane stripes would have been impressive. ;0)

What a wonderful display! Your kids must get a real kick out of your meals. You've inspired me to try the same. :)

I love it. I had to grab people in the next room to see the gingerbread men.
