Banana Dogs

One of the nice things about my blog name is that you can't possibly expect me to be regular about posting, right?  Right?

I had a great week.  It's been a lot of family time and relaxing.  Then the past two days, it's been a clean up frenzy.  I'm not done with all my chores yet, but I needed to do something fun.  So, I made some yummies that I'll blog about later, and I made my kids a fun and easy lunch.

What's that you say?  A banana in place of a hotdog?  Yeah, seems a little strange, but really... peanut butter and banana sandwiches aren't that uncommon.  You might like them.  Try them and you may I say.  This is actually something that my older son saw on a mini show called Ze Fronk, back when Disney Junior was Playhouse Disney.  He's loved it ever since.  And it's really easy to make.  So easy, I kinda feel silly showing you how.  But I'm going to anyway.

This is all there really is to it.  Get your hotdog bun.  I use Oroweat Potato Bread hotdog buns for Henry.  Then spread some jelly on one side and peanut butter (or sunflower butter to make it Henry friendly) on the other side.

Then, cut a banana in half lengthwise.  Originally, this called for a whole banana.  We used a whole one the first time.  It was a lot of banana, but maybe you'll like it.  Cutting it in half also works for us because we were making two of these.  And the recipients have little mouths.  Put it on your hotdog bun.

Then, just close it up and enjoy!

Easy, right?
