I'm so happy we've arrived at yet another weekend and I must say the weather forecast in our neck of the woods is looking absolutely fantabulous! It's gonna be sunny & hot! hot! hot!!
We have a busy night ahead of us, so I wanted to have a quick and easy dinner leaving time for play with the pups and for a little resting up to prepare for a fun night out with friends.
On Friday, my bestie brought a jar of her mom's homemade strawberry jam over. It had just been made on Thursday ~ it can't get any fresher than that and I have to say it is goo-ood!!
And then on Tuesday my long awaited (thanks to the Canadian postal strike) Trader Joe's package from Cait at Beyond Bananas arrived. I got lots of awesome looking goodies, but so far this guy is my favourite.....
So, I guess it's obvious what I decided to chow down on tonight for dinner.....it PB&J time baby!! With a twist of course ;-).
I saw a grilled pb&j on a tortilla on Sarah's site in her last WIAW post and it's been on my radar ever since. I have to tell you it is awesome!
Grilled PB&J Tortilla
1 tortilla (I used a 6" whole wheat tortilla)
1.5 - 2 tbsp nut butter
1.5 - 2 tbsp favourite jam
Lay your tortilla out on a flat surface.
Spread your nut butter on one half and the jam on the other half.
Fold the tortilla in half.
Heat up a frying pan over medium heat and place the folded tortilla into the pan.
Leave for 2 or 3 minutes (until golden brown) and then flip.
The tortilla is ready for munchin' once both sides are golden brown and the nut butter is all melty and delicious looking.
I had mine with some chopped grape tomatoes, mixed with chunks of mozzarella and balsamic vinegar.
It sounds like a weird combo of flavours to eat together, but I have to tell ya it was really, really tasty!
What is your favourite nut butter?
Any exciting plans for this weekend?
Have a great evening and an even better weekend,
