My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

One of my favorite lunches

I didn't know what I was going to post today, but then decided to make it easy. I realized it was after lunchtime and I would like a a simple peanutbutter & jelly sandwich. Quick & easy.. But I started thinking if it was really a healthy low calorie choice, I just started to total the numbers and it really isn't really a low cal lunch. But who cares, right.
Once I started adding, I had to stop.. because already with only
2 Tbls of peanutbutter which =190 calories & which I always use more than that, (why skimp when you are a choosy mother?) add to that
2 slices of oatnut bread =200 (you cannot make a sandwich with only one slice) and I have to butter one side before slapping on the peanutbutter.
1 Tbls butter * Yes I use Butter = ?
2 Tbls Peach jelly * made by me=? plus add
1 cup of Earl Grey tea, w/ 1 Tbls honey=? Well I know there are no calories in the water..and well the honey? Does it really matter? Peanutbutter has to be Jiff extra crunchy and jelly peach one of my favorites also and yeah I made it with 100% sugar so that add some more to the calorie count. I can't win but oh how wonderful it tastes. I am sure there is something good about a simple peanutbutter & jelly sandwich..otherwise why would moms around the world put it in their kids lunches?
