You’ve been enlisted…..

….into the sandwich assembly line!  For anyone that has ever bought Smuckers Uncrustables and cringed at the price or the wayyyy too long ingredient list and for any mom that wonders when their kids will be old enough to help with the laundry list of work they create (love them though we do, we’d still like some help).  Here are some pictures of what the kids helped me do today…….38 sandwiches (pressed with the Pampered Chef cut-n-press and baggied individually for the freezer)!  Our chickens are very much enjoying the excess of heels and crusts!

Some kiddo funnies…..
