What time is it?

It's peanut butter jelly time!

Welcome to The Spicy Cupboard!

Shucks howdy!

Folks this is Michelle's husband, Jimmy, doing a guest post for you on this special April day.

First off, today's recipe is not for the faint of heart, or for beginners!

Today we are making Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Your first choice is a hard one: Which bread to use as your base?

I prefer a white bread myself, my wife prefers wheat; however, you may choose something else. Potato bread? French bread? Italian bread? Right said bread?

We will be using white bread today.

Once you have that figured out, your next choice is equally as hard. What type of Peanut butter. Chunky? Creamy? Natural?

Today we are using Creamy.

Now we decide on the Jelly. Strawberry? Grape? Sugar free? etc.

Today we are using sugar-free strawberry jam.

Now that we have these ingredients let's start making our masterpiece.

☆ ☆ ☆

First, we take 2 slices of our chosen bread.

Using a butter knife spread peanut butter on one side of one piece.

Like so.

Then, we take the knife and spread our chosen jelly on one side of the other slice of bread.

Take both slices and while having each slice face each other (side with peanut butter or jelly) put them together.

Once this is complete you still have a few options. You can cut the crust off, you can cut it in half, or even into 4 pieces.

And Voilà, dinner is served!


Also, if you haven't guessed by now,

Happy April Fools Day!
