You all.

I have to tell you about this awesome lunch that I grew up on. My mom first heard about it from our crazy sweet hairdresser, Jan. I have great memories of Jan, not only because she turned us on to this amazing lunch, but because she would always tell my sister and I (both pre-elementary at the time) that she also cut Prince’s hair. When we’d walk into the salon, she would always say, “Oh, you girls just missed him. He was just here!” My sister and I both had crushes on Prince. I mean, who didn’t in 1985?

Anyhow. I love this lunchtime treat, and my kids do, too. It’s like peanut butter and jelly made even better. I mean, who wouldn’t like melty peanut butter and jelly or jam smooshed between two buttery toasty slices of bread?

So are you ready to learn how to make it?
