Okay, sorry for shouting, but I am so excited school is back in session. It’s been an odd summer and Jordan’s been bored to death for most of it, so she’s just as excited for school as I am.

I set out to create some new and fun ways to make her favorite sandwich and I came up with 5 new ways to upgrade your PB&J!
