Susan says this isn’t much of a Works for Me Wednesday

But I think it is. So here it goes.

The other day I saw an ad for Philadelphia Cream Cheese featuring a new cream cheese with a swirl of jam in it. I chuckled because Jackson came up with this combination for his toast when he was three and it is still one of his favorites.

When he first suggested it, I thought it was kind of strange. But then I thought, “Well I put raspberry sauce on my cheesecake – so why not?

Works For Me WednesdayIn these days of peanut free lunches, I think this is great alternative to the old peanut butter and jam sandwiches. It has some protein and substance and yet is quick and inexpensive.

I eat it too – it is sweet and yummy on warm toast.

Sorry if it was not the most original idea – but it works for us!

    I love this stuff too but hadn’t thought of sending it in place of peanut butter – great idea! (It’s great in cinnamon rolls too – replacing cinnamon and sugar!)

    Cream cheese ‘n’ jelly has always been a favorite of mine. My youngest son will make these for a snack. Frankly, I bet it’s cheaper and better to do it with separate cream cheese and jelly than to buy the ready mixed stuff.

    I’ve been doing this for years, too. Love it — especially with seedless blackberry jam . . . YUMMY!!! It’s a great idea, not to be pooh-poohed!!

    I started making cream cheese and jelly sandwiches for my son when he was 12 months old. I needed the ease of a PB&J, but am trying to avoid peanut butter with him until he’s a little older. It’s a GREAT solution and he LOVES IT! Definitaly a good WFMW.
