As the owner of a former sandwich shoppe, I intend to explore the sandwich food group. Yes, it has it's own food group. So begins the Sunday Sandwich Series.
We'll start off with the classic.
PB&J.Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches became popular during World War II when GIs were given peanut butter and jelly in their rations. When they returned from the war, peanut butter and jelly sales skyrocketed. It's been an American favorite ever since. I personally like peanut butter and honey the best, but jelly still maintains its awesomeness.
white or wheat sliced bread
peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
jelly (of your choosing)Lay out your ingredients. If your peanut butter is oddly stiff and smells like cardboard, check the expiration date:
When you discover that the expiration date was August 2006, pull a face and be really glad you noticed before eating the nasty old peanut taffy. Come to the conclusion that it is probably from your mother-in-law and most likely came from your husband's college days. Eww.
Search your cabinets for more peanut butter & check the expiration date again.February 2009. Hmm. Well, it expired 4 months ago, but at least it's still sealed. *shrug*Spread PB&J on the bread.Put the two slices together.Enjoy!And now, it's Peanut Butter Jelly Time!!!
