101 PEANUT BUTTER SANDWICHES
My middle child, who we call Pickle, has autism, and is extremely habitual with what he eats. His preferred lunch is a peanut butter sandwich; he has one nearly every day. Sometimes he has two a day. One day, as I was cutting the umpteenth sandwich, I wondered how many different ways I’ve served my picky boy his plain old PB lunch… and how many more ways I could in the future… So for fun, I set a goal – I would try to make 101 different peanut butter sandwiches, and blog them. It took about six months, but with the help of my Lunch Punches, some cookie cutters, and a lot of creativity, I did it! I reached my goal just in time for Autism Awareness Day too.
