Henry eats some strange things, I truly don’t know how up to this point his stomach and taste buds have not leaped out of his body and beaten him up.  However now I’m not going to mock my husband, I instead come to the community of LJ asking does anyone else eat the item I’m about to describe.

 

Peanut butter and Jelly Sandwiches …..

 

Okay not so strange except, Henry puts butter on his peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. He says that’s why they are called peanut ‘butter’ and jelly sandwiches.  I think it’s the most disgusting thing the world.  But still I wonder is my family the only one who doesn’t do this?  Henry is adamant that it’s not strange that I am the one that lost out in childhood because I was denied the butter.

 

Does anyone else eat this?  Was it also your childhood treat?

 

 

As for cordials, I’ve been thinking of using Captain Morgan’s spiced rum as a base instead of vodka.  Has anyone used it before?  I was going to mix it with black cherries in one batch and peaches in another.

Thoughts?

Peanut butter and butter? Ew. Heart attack anyone?

Butter refers to the texture of the food, not the actual "butter" milk based product.

My childhood treats were fairly normal although I do love peanut butter on apple slices. Yeah...normal. Okay, well, my favorite childhood food was peanut butter rolls with green olives on the side. It's yummy.

And he puts it on thick also. I can hear his heart skip a beat from across the room.

Sorry, not strange. Lotsa kids I knew growing up ate them this way...and it's really good on toast.

Mmmmmmmm...buttery goodness.

when the peanut butter is melty and the butter is melty, the toast just melts in your mouth and the jelly is that crispness that just balances the flavors.

Really, I thought he made it up. I'm still not going to eat it though.

If you've got peanut butter, you skip dairy butter. I mean, I love butter but the two are overkill.

have to disagree with you on this... butter is a necessity and without it, not quite the same sandwich.

To paraphrase Guvnor Jesse Ventura,

"I am not a yuppie. I do not eat much fruit. I beelive that most things worth eating can be improved by the addition of bacon and cheese" (and in this case butter).

I didn't do the "butter" until I met T's bio family and they did it. Not bad. Now my kids like it that way thanks to Mimi.

I must have been living in a cave cause I never heard of butter on PB&J until Henry moved in with me.

Very Strange.

Can't say I've ever experienced that one.
My husband remembers his Mommy making grilled cheese sandwiches...with a layer of brown sugar next to the cheese. I was feeling generous the other day, and made him one. I like brown sugar, I love cheese, but I don't think they should be cavorting together between slices of bread. That's just WRONG.

I think it's a rural/Depression leftover. Ohaithar, I'm wandering through late to the party...

When I was a kid, I could always tell when Dad made our lunch, because it was a peanut butter, butter and honey sandwich. My brother and I would compare notes (BLEAH!) and complain of starving that day because it was just too sweet.

Dad just didn't understand. That sandwich was a treat. Well, yeah-- he was the youngest child of the first chief ranger of Zion and Bryce National Parks, and was born in the old ranger station. It was a two day wagon trip to the nearest town, and peanut butter and honey was a rare commodity to be savored; the cow provided the butter after some hard work with the churn, and the bread was baked every other day.

He's 74 now and still makes it every once in a while. Fortunately, he has no sign of cardiac trouble; we tend to get cancer instead.

Wow, I thought I was the only person that loved PB-H&B sandwiches - though it is something I picked up from my mom (adoptive) and she was a Depression kid.
