April Showers Bring May Flowers Spring Lunch Recipe

It's one of the sayings that I remember most in elementary school. I couldn't wait for the rain to end each Spring and for the sun to come out in May. As an adult, I still feel the same way. The only difference is that I look forward to the sunshine so I can spend more outside time with my kids and wife. We love going to sporting events, amusement parks, or just on a walk to our local downtown area. Maybe you feel the same way about this time of year?

This lunch is all about showing my daughter that I care for her. In fact, each time she opens one of these special lunches, I know that she can see how much I care for her. I know there are some special ways that you show the people in your life that you care for them. Maybe it's through something you cook, or the way that you clean, or making sure your son's special shirt is washed when he needs it. Maybe you will even make this lunch for your kids? If so use the instructions below.

Whole wheat bread
Peanut butter (or nut free spread)
