Peanut Butter and Jelly Banana Dog with Apple Fries


Welcome to Day 4 of Lunchbox Week.  I remember eating A LOT of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches growing up for lunch.  My kids get a PB and J sandwich at least once a week in their school lunchbox since it keeps well without refrigeration.  I saw this "hot dog" version using a banana all over Facebook a few weeks back and I knew that the kids would love to try it.  I was right... because they really enjoyed it and they loved how fun it was to eat.    To complete the meal, I made some apple fries.  The trick to keeping these fries from discoloring is to slice and place them in some salted water for a few minutes.  We dipped the fries in some more strawberry jam.   I don't own a lunchbox of my own, but these lunchbox meals are too tempting for this Mom.  I  made a "hot dog" for myself and enjoyed it very much. Yum! Yum!

Hot Dog Buns
Jam or jelly of choice
Peanut butter

For Apple Fries:

 Apply Peanut Butter on both sides of hot dog bun.  Place peeled banana and apply jam as a "ketchup" garnish.   For apple fries, peel apple and slice.  Place sliced apples in salted water to keep from browning.  Place on paper towel to dry.    Enjoy.
