Seriously, food is a universal giver of joy and warm fuzzies, no?
Another might be George Clooney.
Anyway, when Sadie was down last week, being the second of four to be taken out by the vicious stomach bug, she didn't eat a thing for a day and a half. When her appetite finally came back, all she wanted was what we like to call, Sadie's Sandwich.
It's not fancy or snoochy, but it is loved by our little girl and it's one of her favorites. I thinks its the flavors. Or the smells. Or the butter, that comforts her little soul. Either way, try it and see if you don't get the same reaction from your little stinkers.
2 pieces of bread
Peanut Butter, Sadie prefers the kind "without nuts" which is Creamy. Explaining that all peanut butter has nuts sometimes seems far to complicated, and I know what she means, so I just roll with it.
1/2 Granny Smith apple, peeled and thinly sliced.
Heat up your skillet and butter one side of both pieces of bread. Spread peanut butter both slices and slap one in the pan, butter side down. Place apple slices on top of the peanut butter, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and top with remaining piece of bread. Grill pretty slow so the peanut butter gets nice and melty and the bread gets golden and crunchy.
And for Heaven's sake, don't mash the whole thing down with your spatula.
I'm sorry, that sounded bossy. Let's try again.
It's best if you let the bread remain in it's God-given form, instead of trying to make it something it was never intended to be. Like a smashed piece of bread.
