of coffee, jam, butter and a salad


If you were having coffee with me, we would be enjoying a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. A friend dared me to try it so here goes.

First of all I have no words to explain how I felt when I realised that a peanut butter sandwich was just basically…..BREAD spread with PEANUT BUTTER!!! No fancy stuff. So you can imagine how I am feeling now that I have discovered a PB & J also known as Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich is bread with one slice spread with peanut butter and the other with Jam!!! Plain regular Jam.

I love jam and I love peanut butter but I have always thought together they would taste awkward you see.So today I shall introduce my taste-buds to something new.


Step number 1 I spread half a slice with jam and another slice with jam. (so as not to waste bread if I did not like the combination)


Step number 2 I said a little prayer to the culinary Gods then I took a bite first from the jam side then from the butter side and chewed. Not bad at all I thought to myself


Step number 3 I finished spreading the bread, because well it’s a taste, I could get used to, I like it suddenly and I insist I take another bite.


Step number 4 I joined the two and made the sandwich complete then finished it. (see what I did there)


Thank you Nakku for challenging me to do the #ProjectPeanutButter&Jam that is one item struck off from my To-Do List yey, and one item added to my fave snacks.

If you were having coffee with me, I would tell you contrary to Betty’s tongue twister; Never add a bit of better butter to bitter butter to make the bitter better because you will end up with more of the not so good bitter butter since you make the better bitter.. simply throw away the bitter butter enjoy fresh butter . . . . you are welcome.

If you were having coffee with me I would ask you that since we name a sandwich after whatever is on the middle why do we never speak of margarine sandwiches, even air sandwiches if there is nothing in between the bread, or what if you stack 3 slices of bread together is that a bread sandwich?

And better yet, if two people on opposite sides of the world drop slices of bread at exactly the same time, for a little while is that an Earth Sandwich with everyone on it??!!! The things that keep me up at night.

If you were having coffee with me, I would share with you a secret, I want to be uncommon and sophisticated, I walk around with the pretentious airs that I am marmalade jam,  even though I am really orange jelly and all I want to do is bounce bounce bounce……

I guess if you can be anything be the best version of it, like why insist on being a plain boiled cabbage when you can be,  A salad dressed in rich mayo, freshly garnished and tossed on a bed of salad……

~Step out of the ordinary~

  2. That was the most entertaining read I’ve had today. I believe peanut butter and jam (or jelly) is a common sandwhich in the US. And why not? A little bit of what you fancy can’t be bad. In Yorkshire in the UK, it’s quite common to have jam and cheese in a sandwhich, or on crackers – or Marmite and cheese. Yorkshire people also like a piece of cheese with their fruit cake. Anything goes!
    I enoyed your precarious journey towards taking that first bite. Congratulations on getting there. Happy bouncing. 🙂

    1. I Love cheese on anything, i even have my cheese with extra cheese.
      Am glad you enjoyed my journey to making the perfect sandwich, as you can tell might have slightly obsessive compulsions hahahaha

      thank you and bounce bounce bounce

  3. Haha, the things you think about make me laugh! I was particularly amused by the concept of an Earth sandwich.

    Also, I’m glad you’ve finally discovered the joys of peanut butter and jelly. I think I would’ve starved to death as a child without PB & J sandwiches, because I ate them almost every day. That’s probably not healthy.

    1. hahahaha you should live in my head, there is never a dull moment…
      The concept of an Earth Sandwich is all fun and games till a giant tries to eat the sandwich with everyone on it lol
      The joys of PB&J sandwiches but too much of them cant possibly be good right 🙂

      Yes do update me on any interesting answers you come up with as to the sandwich queries.


  6. Oh heavens, I was weaned on peanut butter and jam. They even sell PB&J at Starbucks here! Have you tried peanut butter and honey? Peanut butter and banana? Live dangerously! 🙂

    1. havent yet tried butter with anything else outside of jam…..
      I have tried peanut butter and Nutella Hazel Nut or Choc spread

      erm peanut butter and banana?????? hahaha I live on the edge but that ?? yeah will pass



  7. I was never a big fan of peanut butter and jelly. It was too sticky for me. 😛

    And oh my goodness, that thought about the two slices of bread on opposite sides of the world, and it being a world sandwich… I don’t even know what to say. That’s crazy and really awesome. o.O


  8. PB&J is just peanut butter and wait for it…..jam!? Really? I have been going about life feeling incomplete but probably “discovered” this sandwich Americans always refer to long (long) ago. Thanks B, great piece- as usual.
    I sure hope a giant won’t want to have an Earth sandwich. I sure like Earth uneaten.

      1. thats cause you said it wrong, you have to say Peanut butter and jelly, that sounds pwetty enough to eat right ?


  9. B. this was such an enjoyable read and as one of your other followers suggested PB&J is a staple here in the US. If you like PB& J you’ll need to try PB & Bannana. When I was first introduced to a peanut butter and banana sandwich I was like ewwww sounds disgusting but for once I tried something I felt was strange and have loved it ever since. I like the earth sandwich as well 😉


    1. hi Steph 🙂 peanut butter and banana???? I am still taking baby steps here hahaha that sounds a tad eeew hahaha OK so the banana part do I take a banana and mash it up and spread it on the bread or what ???? hahaha isn’t it a bit weird lol


      p.s. an earth sandwich is soooo Zen

      1. I know I thought the same – yuk. But there really is no pickier eater than me and if like, well… All you have to do is cut the banana in slices and throw them on the peanut butter laced bread. Well maybe not throw but rather gently place.

      2. well if you put it like that….. I am tempted to give it a do…. actually I will, soon as I get my next banana (I always have peanut butter)

  10. Cant believe you hadnt tried peanut butter and jam sandwiches. Thats child’s play. I have tried fancier combinations. Bread, marg and potato crisps, bread marg sprinkled with a bit of sugar, even bread peanut butter and maputi. Thats what happens when you are a border in high school and have too much time on your hands lol
