I can’t believe I took a two month long hiatus. It wasn’t planned, life has just one overwhelming event after another. In case anyone remembers about my washing machine that flooded my kitchen, I got brand new floors put back in. They are exactly the same as before which is a miracle otherwise the bedrooms would have had old wood and the living area a mismatched new wood. I’m almost back to normal, I just need to get a plumber out here to install my dryer. I’ve been without a dryer for two and a half months. Thankfully Oklahoma skipped winter this year and it’s been so nice outside I can actually line dry my clothes since my dad installed the washer. Thanks daaaaddy!
I’ve also had tons of interest in my invitations which has brought in extra cashmoney BUT also kept me SUPER busy. You wouldn’t believe how many people come to my blog looking for invitations. It’s been awesome and I’m so happy I started doing that. It only took three years but better late than never.
Since I’ve had so many things keeping me busy, I really needed to get over the hump of not blogging and take advantage of this quiet saturday morning and BLOG!!! So I have a recipe to share. I know it’s not my usual forte, but it will do for now. Ladies and Gentleman (do guys read this blog other than my husband?) may I present:
The Peanut Butter, Jelly & Bacon Sandwich
I woke up this morning CRAVING a sandwich I didn’t know existed. With one eye cracked open googling this on my way to bright for the morning iPhone I found out that this is in fact a real thing. Elvis ate it, and if it’s good enough for the king, it’s good enough for me. If you happen to be reading this blog because you also googled it… Be not ashamed. It’s totally normal, now go make this and enjoy.
It all started with two slices of toasted bread, like any self-respecting sandwich should. (P.S. I LOVE sandwiches and it’s hard to think of eating one NOT toasted. Like I even toast a PLAIN peanut butter and jelly. It’s just the way it was meant to be.)
Next up is the peanut butter and jelly. In my world, grape does not exist. So don’t you dare bring it into my house. Acceptable flavors are strawberry, raspberry, apricot, apple, blackberry and so on and so forth. Anything but grape. Oh and would someone explain the whole jam and jelly thing? I use the terms interchangeable even though they aren’t the same thing. I just don’t get it.
Now it’s bacon time. I went with a moderate four and a half pieces. You can put on whatever your heart desires. Another side note, I like it when my peanut butter is warm and kind of melty so sometimes I have to put it in the microwave for a couple extra seconds if I toasted the bread too soon and it’s already cooled down which I almost always do.
In case you’re not sure what’s on the bacon… it’s maple syrup, cause duh, why not? If you’re already putting BACON on a PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY sandwich, why not add a little maple syrup. There is no shame here. Oh my goodness at this point it smelled delicious. I could never be a food blogger cause all I wanted to do was eat it.
THE VERDICT? Not bad! It definitely hit that savory sweet craving I had. In fact, it’s been three hours since I ate the first one and I’m already starving again so I may need to go polish off the rest of the bacon.
Anyone else have interesting food combinations you eat? I’d love to hear, seriously I would. This ones not that weird but I eat scoop my baked beans with Lay’s potato chips. Mmm, I think I’m the only one in my family that does. So start spilling!
