Elephant Tusk Sandwiches

The boys were excited tonight when I announced they could make themselves Elephant Tusk Sandwiches for dinner.

Elephant Tusk Sandwiches

Two Pieces of Bread
An Elephant Tusk
Elephant Food

The bread holds the sandwich together. Spread elephant food on each slice of bread. (What do elephants like to eat? Peanuts and peanut butter!) Slice an elephant tusk (banana) lengthwise so it will lie flat on the bread. Enjoy with a glass of milk to wash down the crumbs.

This is a recipe I remember from childhood--it was either in Highlights magazine or the Betty Crocker cookbook for kids.

How sweet! Next week, my daycare population explodes with summer kids. I think the under 7 crowd will like that. The over 7 crowd will like laughing at the kids who like it.

We didn't call it by the same name, but toast with peanut butter and banana was a favorite breakfast, with the required side of a glass of milk (all the necessary carbs and protein) when my two were school age. We merely sliced the banana crosswise. The name was eventually shortened to "t with pb and b." If Mom was feeling generous, there might be a couple of mini marshmallows, or half maraschino cherry, to make a face. Raisins would work too.
Oh, the memories.

Totally cute!

Joanne, I hope they really enjoy it. *Grin*

FLGrandma, my personal faves are pb and honey or homemade strawberry jam. My mom sometimes gave use pb and butter. Not my fave.

I'm a big fan of peanut butter, both myself and for the ease in making food for the kids. I feel like the stereotypical missionary when I'm so excited to get pb from the states! *L*
