I remember as a kid spending all day outside playing baseball in the cul-de-sac with the neighbor kids and not wanting to stop to eat lunch. We would all run in the house, grab the white bread, (back in the day it was Wonderbread) the peanut butter, and jelly and slap together a quick sandwich. Never missed a beat!
Today I still slap together a PBJ every now and then, but the bread of choice has changed. Whole Wheat and usually sugarfree jellies or jams. Still oooh so yummy.
Celebrate the day. Grab your favorite Peanut butter and jelly and make yourself a timeless favorite. Grill it, eat it open faced, use fresh fruit instead of jelly, or as my Mother used to do; peanut butter, raisin, applesauce samiches.
Here are some interesting stats on Peanut butter. Compliments of www.seriouseats.com
