Peanut Butter Jelly Time

Peanut butter and Jelly sandwiches were my favorite. As a child, I always discarded the crust. For some reason, the crust never stuck to the roof of my mouth the way the rest of the bread did. I worked my way to the center of the bread, where the creamy thickness of the peanut butter met the sticky sweetness of the artificial grape jelly. Sometimes I would go for seconds, not because I was hungry, but because I liked them too much to have self-control.

Sometimes I wonder who thought of putting peanut butter and mixing it with jelly. It is truly underrated food. PB&Js are the best because you can have them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Anytime. In fact, on really long days when I’m in need of comfort, I’ll take a trip to a deli and ask for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to bring me back to when times were a bit simpler, and joy was a simple sandwich paired with chocolate milk.
