PBJ Saturday

Did you know that today is 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?

    I certainly did have a PB&J that day. PBHBJ, to be exact. Two layers of Jif Natural Creamy peanut butter holding a layer of Aunt Sue’s Raw and Unfiltered Wildflower Honey, a sliced Chiquita banana and Smucker’s Natural Concord grape jelly, all brought together between two slices of Pepperidge Farm Whole Grains Honey Wheat Bread. Mmm mmm, that sandwich was delicious!
