Peanut butter, pickles and mayonnaise for sandwiches or as an appetizer cannot be beat. I think I know what you are thinking; that I’m crazy or pregnant! Neither I hope, but in the last few days this is what I’ve been eating for lunch with a nice cold glass of milk. And, as an appetizer with a cold, frosty beer, this is killer.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted a new recipe and it’s because we are headed into a boat sale that has been kind of stressful. We have been eating out all the time, not wanting to take the time and effort to cook our own meals. So now we are within a week of selling the boat and living on land and negotiating the sale of our boat with a paranoid buyer! I’d go into details but it would only be depressing and I don’t want to relive it. Let’s just say that we have a questionable settlement that I hope works for us and the inexperienced buyer. A synopsis is that he is buying the boat here in Dunedin and will be taking the boat across to Apalachicola FL within two weeks to ultimately moor the boat in Panama City, FL. So he’ll be doing a shakedown cruise across 140 miles of the Gulf of Mexico, most of which is done at night, without knowing a whole lot about the boat and because of the way he has treated us through the whole transaction, I’m not about to bend over backwards to help him learn the stuff. I’m ready to take the money and run! On to the sandwich.
Now I’m thinking…do I need to post pictures of how to spread All Natural Peanut Butter on a piece of whole wheat bread and then spread mayonnaise, (actually I prefer Miracle Whip due to it’s sweetness), and add some dill pickle slices to the mix and eat like a regular sandwich? And, if you want to make a cool appetizer of this, leave them as an open face version cut up into bite-size squares. Well hell yes, because I’m going to eat the damn things when I get done with the photos!
I guess that this is an acquired taste because the First Mate doesn’t care much for it, but I’ve been eating this combination since 7th grade when a guy named Jerry had them every day for lunch. Try it and tell me what you think.
Still on Paradise for a few days!
