I hope you have been able to say “Happy PB and J Day” at some point today. And if you missed today, you can surely celebrate all week long! April 2nd is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day – a food holiday (love those) that celebrates the “PB and J” sandwich. What’s your favorite way to eat a PB and J? With so many flavor combos and ingredients to choose from there must be thousands of possible combinations. PB and J is quite possibly the perfect lunch box sandwich. Simple, healthy, long-lasting and filled with fruity nutty cozy flavor. Lets take a look at a few of my favorite PB and J ingredients and recipes..
