It never fails that I'll wake up a little too late to make something decent to pack for lunch. I'll have it all planned out in my head when I'm drifting off to Z-land... mmm pesto pasta, beet salad,...
But I also forget that I have a horrible problem with sleeping through everything, not to mention my alarm. I grew up next to a train track, so I think that has something to do with it. I'll sleep through earthquakes, phone calls, movies, alarms, frat-parties, you name it.
Because I'm always flying out the door, I have perfected the art of jazzing up the classic peanut butter and jelly. When I was little and my parents were shoving us out the door into the car, we'd get a toasted peanut butter sandwich with granola and bananas if we were lucky.
So what I do now to my little brother is very similar... except he doesn't like it toasted (gawhat!?) Oh well.
I add pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and whatever dried fruit we have on hand- usually raisins, cranberries, blueberries, and currents. I'll also sprinkle on some flaxseed meal and sliced apples. I'd have been one hungry college kid if it wasn't for the ol' pb&j, so jazz it up a little folks.
