Did you know that today was National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day?

home pride wheat, pbj, peanut butter, jam, jellyOf course a PBJ starts out with the right bread. For me that is Home Pride Butter Top Wheat bread.

Smucker's Strawberry Jam, Family Jam, SmuckerI am going to cheat a little bit here and have jam instead of jelly.

Of course that means some Smucker’s Strawberry Jam.

There is a very good reason to choose Smucker’s. My great great grandfather Jeremiah Yoder was a second cousin of Ella Yoder the wife of the founder Jerome Monroe Smucker. I am also related to J.M. Smucker, but only a 4th cousin.

Since Jif is also a Smucker’s brand it makes for a good combination.

Of course the first bite was delicious. Memories of childhood PBJ’s came to mind as I enjoyed my sandwich.

Did you have a PBJ today?

    Wrong jelly. It has to be grape!

    I have my own peanut butter jar and mix jelly in it to taste. Then when the jar has only peanut butter again, I have the option to change taste of jelly or jam.

    Still no luck finding Home Pride Bread bear where I live, but Brownberry 100% Whole Wheat has become my go-to bread lately. The favorite fillings – Jif Natural Creamy peanut butter, Aunt Sue’s Raw and Unfiltered Wildflower Honey, a sliced banana of whatever brand I can find, and Smucker’s Simply Fruit Seedless Black Raspberry Spreadable Fruit – are still my go-to fillings for a healthy and yummy sandwich. I’m actually eating one as I write this. *takes a bite* Mmm, so good.
