Have you ever thought about how many peanut butter and something sandwiches you've made for your kids? I think I lost count about two years ago. To alleviate the monotony of day in, day out sammie making (for both me and my kids), I've started whipping up these Banana Dog Bites.
Kenya couldn't stop laughing when I asked him, "you wanna make banana dogs?" He just kept saying, "what's a banana dog? That's so silly!" But he loved spreading the nut butter on the tortilla, peeling the banana, laying it in it's "tortilla bed" (that got another big laugh) and rolling it up for the banana to "sleep tight" (still more giggles). Then I simply cut the Banana Dogs into half-inch sushi-style pieces (which looked adorable), and sent him off to school with them. But it wasn’t until his lunch box came home totally empty that I realized just how yummy they were!
