NF Monday -- Peanut Butter and Jelly Sushi
Peanut Butter and Jelly Sushi and other party Recipes by Kristi Johnson. A Snap Book from Capstone Press, 2008. Available now.
It's the end of August and a young person's mind turns to -- SCHOOL? Actually, they're probably trying to think of new things for their favorite class -- Lunch.
What to pack for lunch?
Peanutbutter and Jelly sandwiches?
Crustless frozen peanutbutter and Jelly sandwiches?
how about Peanut Butter and Jelly Sushi?
Raw fish? Yuck! (Sorry Yoko)
No -- really. The Peanut Butter and jelly sushi on the cover actually look like they'd taste pretty good.
This easy cookbook is perfect for young fingers. Step by step instructions create goodies suitable for slumber parties, anytime parties, and even school lunchbags. Photographs show ways to display your finished product. And there's even a sidebar for every receipe offering tidbits about the dish -- page 9 explains what's inside real Japanese sushi.
Especially helpful is the Tools Glossary which not only explains the kitchen tools mentioned in the book, but shows the young reader pictures of them. Neat!
Other titles in the series include:
Apple Pie Calzones and other cookie recipes
Banana Split Pizza and other snack recipes
Monkey Pudding and other dessert recipes
Oodle Doodles Tuna Noodle and other salad recipes
Wormy Apple Croissants and other Halloween recipes
(Just in time to help you plan your Halloween party)
