glorified jelly sandwich.

Up until about six months ago, if I heard the words "breakfast sandwich," my mind conjured up a savory delight of eggs over medium smooshed between two pieces of perfectly toasted and buttered sour dough bread.  Quite lovely with a hot cup of jo and the morning newspaper. (Ha!  As if any mommy has time to read a newspaper in the morning.)  Well, no more, my friends.  This is because the five year old begs for a different breakfast sandwich just about every day.  I created her breakfast sandwich as a special treat for Valentine's Day morning.  And now this special treat has become a daily request, one which I'm likely to give into because, well, it's the little things in life that matter, right?  (And a bonus-it's a pretty healthy start to the morning!)

Breakfast Sandwich Ava Style: Butter two pieces of whole grain bread.  Spread strawberry jam on the inside of one of the pieces.  Push a layer of sliced strawberries into the jam.  Put the bread together buttered sides out and "grill" over medium heat in a saute pan until golden brown, flip and repeat.  Dust with powder sugar.  Serve warm and gooey with a big glass of milk.
