A Care Package for Papa

I don't always pack Papa's lunches for work,
but when I do I try to add a little extra something special.

Today I made his favorite peanut butter cookies, and was trying to come up with a containers in which to pack them. I also wanted to send him some milk. Just enough for the cookies.

I found canning jars to be a perfect fit!

I made up a few jars ahead of time so he will have them for the next few days.

I wonder what other cool combos I can pack with this cunning canning jar contraption.
Thinking fruit or veggies and dip, mini pancakes and syrup, maybe even salad and soup...
The possibilities are endless!

Recipe: one cup organic 100% peanut butter, 1 cup sucanat, one egg
