Not-your-average PB Sandwich + Site Update

So I suppose if you’re viewing this post right now, you already notice a big difference in my blog’s look. I haven’t 100% settled into a theme yet. (Trying to blog around my work schedule is haphazard at times) But if you haven’t notice already, I’ve officially switched to posting in WordPress! I’m really excited about this change and am slowly but surely learning my way around this baby.

But now on to the good stuff alright? :

Wait, what is on that sandwich?

Lately, I’ve been making a lot of quick meals. (Read: lately I’ve been running late to work frequently and having to make quick meals) So probably the easiest-peasiest quick meal around is Peanut butter and Jelly, right? Well, as I may or may not have mentioned, I’m not a huge fan of jelly. I prefer to eat whole fruits rather than fruit-spreads. My go-to for this purpose (as I’ve mentioned before) is pear. However, I haven’t found any good organic pears lately. I guess that’s what happens when the seasons change. ANYWAYS (stick to the topic Megan!)- I came up with two peanut butter sandwich ideas that were pretty alright.

Peanut Butter Sandich Idea #1 – Peanut Butter & Kiwi Sandwich (of course w/cinnamon)

I figured sweet fruit = very close to jam. And I was pretty on with this baby. It had a nice texture and was a pleasant change to the typical peanut butter sandwich.

Unfortunately, I realized later that my kiwis were a little funky, so I didn’t get a good idea as far as the actual flavor of the sandwich. But hopefully I’ll find some good kiwis and give it another go soon.

Peanut Butter Sandwich Idea #2 – Peanut Butter, Berries, & Peanut Flour Sandwich

  Step 1 – Microwave 2 frozen strawberries & 1/4 cup frozen raspberries for 30 seconds. Smash with a fork and mix well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2 – Mix in 1 tablespoon peanut flour. Stir well until well-blended.

 

 

Step 3 – Go crazy and decide you’re going to add another tablespoon of peanut flour for the heck of it.

Step 4 – Spread 1 tablespoon crunchy (my preference) peanut butter on a piece of  your favorite bread (mine is Trader Joe’s Sprouted Rye). Pour the Berry-Peanut Flour mixture on top.

spread & sprinkle w/cinnamon

 

 

make sure to eat all the fillings!

 

 

 

 

 

ooey-gooey deliciousness

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OK So now that I have your mouth watering sufficiently, I must note that next time I make this sandwich, I’m going to cut the peanut flour by 1 tablespoon and up the peanut butter by 1/2 tablespoon. I think that change will create the perfect ratio for this sandwich.

What’s your favorite peanut butter sandwich combination? 

Got any awesome super-quick meals you want to share with me?
