It feels like the kids were just getting done with school for the summer and now it’s time to start back. I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I’m not excited about the back to school schedule. Regardless of how I feel, the kids have to start back at some point. So I’ve been busy creating lesson plans, lunch menus, and school schedules. To keep things simple and easy, I’m adding options like an Easy PB&J Pocket Sandwich to the rotation. The kids love them and they are so easy to make.

I like our late mornings and lazy afternoons, but I would be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy the routine that comes with the school year. I’m a very routine person so sometimes the go with the flow, relaxed attitude of summer is sometimes overwhelming for me. I make lists for my lists and I need to know how everything is going to play out. So planning is so important to me. And so is simple…I like things to be simple. Hence, an Easy PB&J Pocket Sandwich. They’re perfect for back to school lunches, y’all.
When it comes to lunches for my children, I always try to create a meal that will help them power their day. An easy way to do that is by using protein rich foods in their lunch.
