When Oroweat Organics contacted me about doing a post based upon my favorite sandwich, I knew I should say no. I am working way too much lately (that’s a good thing!), I hardly see the grands during the week, and my favorite sandwich is a simple PB&J. But did I listen to myself? Nope. So I said Sure! I would love to post about Oroweat Organic bread and the amazing sandwiches the grands and I will make!
Three weeks later, after many gentle reminders from the PR rep I am finally here to tell you all about our sandwiches.
Last night I had the chance to babysit the grands and give them dinner. AHA! We’re having sandwiches kids! Since Oroweat Organics provided me with a $25 gift card to purchase supplies, you get to go to the market with me and pick out what you want to buy to put on your sandwiches. What the heck was I thinking?! Seriously this whole working full-time thing and getting old and being peri-menapausal has really fried my brain. When is the last time you tried to take 3 kids under the age of 10 to the grocery store?
Oroweat Organics provided me with 3 coupons good for $5.00 off a loaf of bread, and since the three grands can never agree on anything, I let them each pick out a loaf. We ended up with Whole Wheat, Double Fiber and Country White. None of which were the actual Organic sub category of the brand that we were supposed to be trying, but to my credit they were all actually Oroweat (Matthew walked around with a loaf of some other brand for a while and was distraught that he had to put it back and switch it for the Oroweat brand). After threatening to leave Madilyn in the frozen food freezer to live like Olaf we finally made it back to the car and back to the apartment. Where I proceeded to set up an assembly line of sorts for sandwich making.
I will never be someone who will stymie someone else’s pallette, but I will be damned if I ever have to try something just because you think it tastes good. Let me preface this by saying, each kid had their own decisions and each kid ate 100% of what they made.
I divvied up slices of bread, one slice of whole wheat and one slice of double fiber for each kid (I told them if they ate their whole sandwich they could then have another of the white bread). Then they each decided what their first layer of the sandwich would be, Caitlyn chose Spicy Brown Mustard, the twins both chose peanut butter. So far so good. On to the second layer, sliced cheddar cheese all around! Wait what?! Yup cheese and peanut butte, it brought me back to childhood of my crazy sister putting a slice of american cheese on top of her PB&J on toast. But again, whatever floats your boat, just don’t ask me to taste it. Next layer? Salami for the girls and Matthew declines, his sandwich is complete. Fo those of you keeping track, Madilyn now has Peanut Butter, Cheddar Cheese and Salami on her sandwich. Blergh.
I repeat, they ate every single bite and then made peanut butter sandwiches with the white bread as well! (I don’t know how I managed to not get a single picture of the Country White)
Sandwiches for dinner were a rousing success! And according to the folks over at Oroweat it was pretty balanced and healthy meal! Yay for Grandma!
