Fall time has arrived in Western New York, and around here, fall means a lot of different things – pumpkins, sweater weather, and maybe most significantly – FOOTBALL!!!! My husband and I are both huge college football fans (yes, there is an in-home rivalry) and we do love our hometown pro-football team! Chances are on any given Saturday or Sunday, you’re going to find a game on. As a result, our girls are really getting into football as well. So it’s no surprise that football carries over into the week, and into our lunches!
My youngest daughter loves, loves, loves making her own PB&J sandwiches for lunch – we always have a variety of Smucker’s Fruit Spreads in the house, because the girls love their fresh, fruity taste and I love the variety that I can offer them. So when Katie wanted to make football-themed PB&Js this week, I knew Smucker’s Concord Grape and Red Raspberry would be perfect, as they are pretty close to our hometown teams’ colors (I could have run out to get Smucker’s Blueberry spread for a perfect match, but we always have Smucker’s Grape Jelly on hand!).
Having our football themed PB&J moment was super easy – Katie just made her sandwich like normal, and then used a cookie cutter to cut football helmets out of her sandwich (an awesome way to get rid of the crusts she’s not a huge fan of too!)
Aren’t they cute?? This is such a fun and simple way to enjoy our favorite PB&J Sandwich and celebrate our love of all things fall and football!
Katie was certainly excited to take her football helmet PB&J sandwiches in her lunch!
