It’s National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day!
And you want to know the only reason I actually know that?
It’s because one of my latest peanut butter recipes was featured in today’s Top 9 on the DailyBuzz Healthy Living site!
I was quite excited to see that they linked up to my recent White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake Batter Bars – definitely a delicious way to celebrate today’s holiday, if you ask me.
Then again, I do love me some plain ‘ol, PB & J every now and then, whether it’s sandwiched in between protein pancakes, loaded on a nice thick bagel, topped on some rice cakes, or just as a classic sandwich.
What’s your favorite way to enjoy the classic PB & J?
You’d think that with all of this PB&J talk, that’s what would have been on the menu for today’s lunch, right? But I actually had other plans in mind…
Veggies and I didn’t have much of a chance to bond over the weekend, which I was quickly reminded of when I couldn’t close the veggie drawer in the fridge after grocery shopping yesterday.
But just a little time apart was all we needed, because I was honestly looking forward to this thing all morning.
Filled with romaine, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, carrots, bread & butter pickles, sugar snap peas, leftover cauliflower, black beans, and feta cheese.
And for a little carby crunch, some pre-portioned Kashi crackers on the side.
Pre-portioned because Kashis are a dangerous snack for me. I cannot be trusted with the box.
I’m headed off to an afternoon shift at work in a little while, but be on the lookout this evening for a LOVEly little surprise.
Question for the Afternoon:
Are you celebrating National Peanut Butter Day today?
