Yes I believe this event to be momentous enough to break my posting drought ;P And yep you guessed it...naturally the topic is food!
Well seeing how rarely I have anything but cereal for brekky…tis a special day!
So I bought a small jar of Crunchy Peanut Butter…twas reduced so I couldn’t resist seeing what all the fuss is about! (Yes tis the first time I've purchased PB and my second taste of it...but i dont count that one so technically its my first!)
I ended up having the infamous peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Knowing me though, I doubt I had it the traditional way….if there is one ;P (I am assuming jelly means something more like jam, I always thought that’s what was used, one day I’d like to try it with proper jelly!)
So to remember this for the future I shall explain exactly what I had. Bear with me…I’m sure it’ll be of some amusement to yall, at least!
First I toasted one slice of bread, spread PB on it and cut it into quarters. On one quarter I put blackberry jam and the other I had blood orange & lime jam. Squish together and savour. Repeat!
I toasted another slice of bread (didn’t do both together coz it’ll get cold! Flavour savouring takes time ppl!). Spread PB and quartered. We have some relatively ripe bananas atm, so I sliced half of one up and placed it on top of the PB. Drizzled with maple syrup as its easier to apply than the jar of honey which is almost empty…and twas just as yummy! Lastly sprinkled with cinnamon. YUMMY!
I am just starting to understand the Americans obsession with PB. Tis very niiice! Not something I’d have toooo often though. We’ll see how long it takes to get through this small jar. There’s no doubt each time I do have it, it’ll be in a different form ;P
But, I’m not done yet! Don’t forget we still have the other half of the banana. Prepare yourself….this next one is a bit strange. So mum has these rice cake things that she doesn’t really eat much of and are quite plain without something on it. So yup u guessed it I used a rice cake.
If you’re not sure what I’m going on about, these are pretty much exactly what we have: http://www.sunrice.com.au/our-products/rice-cakes/original-thin
There are others that come with they’re own flavour and are nice, but a lil salty. I’ve tried the first four!http://www.sunrice.com.au/our-products/flavoured-rice-corn-cakes
So I spread a little PB on one, topped with the rest of the sliced banana and drizzle with lots of fig jam! Saweet! ;D
I cant wait to try: http://www.smuckers.com/fg/pds/default.asp?groupid=2&catid=4&prodid=106
, which Carmela got for us a little while ago! It’s PB and jelly in the one jar! Maybe it’ll actual jelly! How exciting!
Now how do yall have peanut butter, if/when you do. Share ur stories or we’ll be heading for another post-less season. And gimme more ideas for interesting brekkies! I’m sick of cereal…well actually it’s a love/hate relationship ;P But it annoys me to waste so many opportunities!Edit: This was written yesterday.. So all this happened on Thursday September 18th! Dodgy nets….what bad timing! And now this post isn’t as satisfying. Hohum.
