Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Split Sandwich, a.k.a. “Dinner for a Boy who’s had a long, busy week and whose sister is away at a dance, so he’s getting his parents’ undivided attention and getting spoiled a little.”
I ran across this recipe (here) on Cooking Light’s website. It looked interesting, but I probably wouldn’t have tried to make it if the reviews didn’t look so good (just a little “weird”). I made this for Boy tonight, because he’s had a very busy week. Hubby and I will likely eat later and polish off leftovers and Girl is away at a school dance, so I wanted to serve something easy and fun for Boy, who is already is full-on relax mode, wearing his pajama pants and ready for some Mario Kart!
Boy really liked the sandwich and finished the whole thing before he even touched the accompanying chips (highly unusual). I didn’t taste it, but if you’re thinking of making this, you should read the website reviews. It sounds like it really (for an adult) can be more of a dessert or sweet snack, rather than a real “meal” type of sandwich. It definitely interesting, though, and can be made out of things that most folks usually have around the house (at least in strawberry season – I just happened to see some beautiful early-season ones at the store the other day.)
