Peanut Butter and Jelly.

Ummm.  What is there to say?  Is there a more perfect food?

I’m a huge… HUGE peanut butter fan.  I usually have peanut butter toast for breakfast and 1 or maybe 2 sandwiches at lunch.  See, I’m not a big jelly fan though.  I consider jelly as a lubricant more than anything else. The more jelly I put on the sandwich, the more peanut butter I can slather on the opposite slice of bread and shove down my gullet.

I’m drooling right now. :-)

My favorite peanut butter is the Adams old fashioned.  The type you bring home with the oil on top so you have to stir it before you use it.  Creamy, not crunchy, of course.  If I can’t have Adams I will settle for Jif.  That’s it, nothing else.

Yes ladies and gentlemen.  I am a peanut butter snob.

There was one moment in my peanut butter history that has burned itself into my brain.  When I was about 6 or 7 I made myself a peanut butter and peanut butter sandwich, it was thick. I was able to scarf down half of it before my digestive system turned to cement.  I folded the remaining sandwich in a few paper towels and stashed in in the garbage can.  As dinner time rolled around I was sitting at the table with the rest of my family and as they were dishing up a healthy and delicious meal, I was staring at the remaining half of my peanut butter and peanut butter sandwich.  This did two things.  It taught me to only take what I could eat and that my parents sometimes root around in the trash looking for my sandwiches.

In 5th grade my teacher, Mr. Barga, made us write out an operating procedure on how to make a PB&J sandwich and it would be demonstrated in front of the class by a different student.  It’s a little harder than you think

PB&J is one of the greatest things in a ride… hell even a race as long as the pace drops down enough to get it out of the bag without splattering yourself and your teammates with it’s gooey innards.

I love it.

Great song too :-)

  • Two slices of bread – one side gets two parts peanut butter and the other side gets one part jelly. Slap them together and then, for good measure, eat one heaping knife full of peanut butter straight from the jar… maybe two, alright three.

  • I was an Adams girl, born and raised, but then I discovered Maranatha organie pb. So much more flavor! You don’t need bread and jelly to enjoy this stuff, just a spoon!
