Confession #4732

Last night I went grocery shopping. We needed everything. When that happens I sometimes overstock trying to have all sorts of food in the house. Assuming that this summer will be like last and we'll be sending most of our days at the pool, I tried to think of easy things to pack and picnic with. I bought yogurt and blue berries, strawberries and string cheese; you know the healthy, wholesome stuff. At the end of the excursion, something caught my eye. Something preservative laden and frozen. I bought those Uncrustable PB and J's.

We brought them to the pool with us today and they were like little pockets of heaven. They were perfectly soft, both sides lined with peanut butter and oozing with strawberry jelly. Mason scarfed his down and asked for another. My boy who could care less if he missed a meal or three couldn't get enough. I've been baking all our bread for the last three months so we are all used to whole wheat, flax seed, make you poop kind of bread. Honestly, I am not sure if my kids have ever had straight up Wonder Bread. Now they know what they have been missing. They were that good. I'm sticking to my guns though, still haven't broke my "no hot dogs under our roof" rule. I prefer my kids to be flying high on sugar rather than chomping on lips and poopers.

I remember goober! I, however preferred the "fluffer nutter".

Belle said...

Goober and Fluffernutter ain't got nothin' on the Uncrustable. Best guilty pleasure ever!

AnnieM said...

Belle, A girl after my own heart! The Uncrustable seems like the sort of thing I would've gone to the store for at 11 pm while being hugely pregnant and eaten all 4 sandwiches.

I started with the white bread and switched to the poo-makers. It seems a lot more like a treat when they don't have it all the time!

My kids love those. They are so good for school lunches. They thaw out just right by lunchtime.

Found your blog through Greenstylemom and it totally makes me laugh. I am trying that hotdog recipe for my boys very soon, lips, poopers and all. ;)
