I realize this English muffin looks pretty small and boring in the picture, but, don’t be fooled. It’s loaded with goodies: peanut butter, Nutella and bananas (quite possibly the best sandwich combo ever). The lemon Fig BarĀ is from Nature’s Bakery. These Fig Bars are a bit spendy, so I don’t buy them all the time. As luck would have it, I found a big box of Fig Bars at Costco while shopping with my mother-in-law, so now I have a good supply of these delicious little energy bars.

Last night, I discovered that we were low on bread. The yogurt molasses bread that I made at the beginning of the week was gone. The whole wheat Trader Joe’s British muffins were gone. We had exactly four pieces of bread: a stale slice of whole wheat bread, the butt of that whole wheat loaf and two whole wheat burger bun bottoms. So, the burger bun bottoms it was. I made a peanut butter, Nutella and banana sandwich on those not-so-fresh burger bun bottoms. I’m sure the kiddos will love this sandwich; they’d eat a slice of cardboard of it had Nutella on it. Thankfully, this is the last lunch of a long week. Love and Lunch will be on hiatus next week for spring break. Yippie! We’ll return on March 31st with fresh bread. I promise.
