Mom's Ode to PB&J: Eating & Eye Candy

Did you know the average American will have eaten 1,500 PB&J sandwiches before graduating high school? I know I did!

I absolutely love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. It’s my favorite comfort food, my favorite energy food and my favorite treat. When Uncrustables came out, I thought it was one the most brilliant products ever made. The glory of the PB&J minus the crust – heavenly!

The irony about my eternal love for PB&J is neither one of my kids will eat it. Can you believe it? They both eat peanut butter, but they won’t touch jelly. The good news is more for me.

As an adult, I tend to eat them for breakfast instead of lunch. It gives me energy, something to look forward to every morning and I don’t feel hungry right away. In fact, I think I’m going to make one right now…

Here’s a little PB&J fun:
