Maurene has been on a banana kick for several months now. I try to keep healthy food within easy reach of the entire family so there is a fruit bowl on the counter. She has been known to have four bananas in one day! I have had to move the fruit bowl a few times to restrict Maurene's access.
In order to satisfy her love for bananas I decided to incorporate them into a recent lunch. Originally I had planned to use flour tortillas but when I went to pull them out I found the entire package missing. I blame their father and his late night snacking. So we made do with sandwich bread with the crusts cut off, flattened.
Audrey and Maurene's Tasks:
- Peel bananas
- Spread peanut butter on bread
- Help flatten bread
- Roll bananas up in bread
- Gather ingredients
- Cut crusts from bread
- Assist girls
As you can imagine this meal went over very well. I did not get a picture of the final plate but I do have one of just the banana roll-up. This bread was a whole grain and they ate it with no complaints. Bananas and peanut butter can help the taste of many a healthy food. Give this presentation a try next time you need a quick lunch or yummy snack. It goes well in whole wheat hot dog buns as well.
