Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches

I had the lunch of champions today. Yup, a PB&J sandwich. (Or, as my youngest brother used to call it, PB&JJ. Why? I don't know. In fact, he may well still call it that. I haven't seen him in almost two years. So I'll have to get back to you on that.) Anyway, we bought grape jelly yesterday, along with some more fabulously smushy white bread. (Remember how I said I'm all about cheap, but not necessarily healthy? Yep. White is smushy, and that's what DH and I wanted.)
Now, my favorite kind of jelly is that Smucker's Strawberry Preservatives stuff. The stuff with big ol' globs of real, live, yummy strawberries in it. My Opa introduced me to this gooey goodness. At least, that's my earliest memory of it. (If he didn't, and someone else who may or may not read this blog did, I apologize.) However, they didn't have that at Choi's. In fact, their jelly selection was rather disappointing yesterday. But we settled on grape.

You know what else is good? Fluff.
Yep. Good stuff. I did not take that picture, I found it and copied it, but I do love the paper plate on the basket. Y'all remember those?? Do people still do that?!!? Anyway, yes, fluff..... how I love thee. I had some late last year. It was a happy time. Until the container was empty.

Right this moment, however, my daughter and I are enjoying candy necklaces that Ryan brought home from the mall. I gave Max her own, to see what she would do. And it's a good thing I did, because her's is all gross and slobbery now. And mine isn't. She's just lying on the couch next to me, sucking away. Occasionally she'll stop and wave it around in the air. Then it's back to sucking and gnawing. Boy, is she going to be mad when we take it away in a little while.


  1. Everytime I bring a PB&J sandwich adn bust it out during lunchtime, the other teachers laugh and ask how old I am. But you know what? I still love it!

  2. Mmm...I love Smucker's strawberry preserves. Great on ice cream, sandwiches, or straight out of the jar!

  3. never had fluff and probably would never have it but, we had a set of paper plate holders just like that and immediately I was taken back to my childhood! freaky haha

  4. Wow! I've never tried "fluff" with peanut butter...but I bet it's good!

  5. I like my PB&J on toast. Just stopped by to see what you were up to.

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yes, they were born 366 days aparts. The youngest turned one on Sunday and the oldest turned two on Saturday. And about the paper plate on a basket. Yep, we have those and I am eating my pizza on one right now. haha I almost spit it out laughing when I read that. Am I old school or something? You know what I REALLY want? I want those plastic ones. We have looked everywhere but can't find em.
