You can always cut the crusts off

You can always cut the crusts off

Your childhood calls out to you for simplicity.  You want to make something for your date that is both easy to assemble, mighty tasty, and nostalgic.  Paging Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich.  This is comfort food so classic that your date instantly will feel safe enough to let their guard down.  One bite and they will be transported to a delicious wonderland of sweet flavors and more innocent times.  What a perfect opportunity to pounce.  We’ve taken the classic, given it a little more texture with the creamy banana and crunchy toasted bread to set fireworks off in each of your mouths.  KA-BOOM!  You should be stylin’ and ready to rock.  Perhaps you can sing some childhood songs as you munch.  “B-I-N-G-Ooooohhhh yeah!”

Total time: approximately 5 minutes
Projected cost: $2
Drinking Buddy: Milk or a juicebox spiked with vodka

Ingredients (for two sinwiches):
pbj-prep1. 2 tablespoons of peanut butter
2. 2 tablespoons of jelly (my choice was blueberry preserves)
3. 1 banana
4. 4 slices of bread

Step 1
Spread peanut butter on two of the slices of bread. Spread jelly on the other two slices of bread.  Peel the banana, then slice it lengthwise, yielding four thin slices of banana.  Cut each slice in half and place on bread with peanut butter.
Step 2
Push each sandwich altogether.  Place in toaster oven and set to medium-dark and toast until the bread becomes golden brown (if you don’t have a toaster oven GET ONE, but in the mean time you can broil the sandwiches in the oven, keeping close eye on them and flipping once).  Slice the sandwiches in half and serve with a childish grin.
