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……
