Monday's Meal for Many Mouths- "Crab" PB & J Sandwiches

This lunch was prepared a few months ago when my children had a friend over to play.  Hence, 5 plates vs. 4.  I thought my "crab" PB & J sandwiches were cute enough to snap a picture and blog about them.  To make the sandwiches I made the traditional PB & J sandwich with 2 pieces of bread.  I then took the 
Pampered Chef Cut-N-Seal  cutting tool to make the circular sandwich.  This cutting tool is quick and easy to use and making my own Smucker's Uncrustables is alot less expensive and I'm sure healthier for my children.  Now my "uncrustables" are not as uniformed as Smucker's, but they are cuter and cuteness counts :).  I then decorate the sandwiches with whatever I have on hand in my kitchen.  The picture above has M&M eyes and nose and the mouth is a string of string cheese.  I also have used mini chocolate chips for eyes and a nose and red licorice for the mouth. I just dab a little PB on the chips/M&Ms to make them stick to the bread.   The "claws" are the crust from the whole sandwich.  The claws are grabbing for goldfish crackers.  I then use my Pampered Chef Apple Wedger, which I use everyday, to slice a whole apple easily and quickly.  This is a quick (and I think cute) way to serve the ever popular PB & J sandwich!

Hi Annita! Do you use Pampered Chef products yourself? I really like their apple wedger :)
I hope your family enjoys their sandwiches!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!
Have a blessed day!

I love my Pampered Chef Cut-n-seal. My kids don't want to eat the crust on their sandwiches and this makes it so much faster and they think they are more fun to eat. This is a super cute idea. Thanks for posting.
