The bread, for the sake of variation, is changed loaf by loaf. Right now, I have two slices of Potato Bread, but this is aberrant; tomorrow I will buy a fresh loaf of whole wheat/oat bran medley.
The Peanut Butter must be natural with or without salt added, but processed peanut butter is really nasty. Once, when I was in college, I bought the peanut butter and jelly in a jar combo, thinking it would save me time (because I was really busy smoking weed and reading Denise Levertov). It was a bad idea.
The preserves must be 100% fruit, or at least close to it. Jam has corn syrup and jelly has all kinds of nitrites and other shit in it.
I don’t mess with organic milk because I’m a lowly writer, but I dig the 1%. You cannot drink anything else with PB n’ J. If you do or try to deny me, I won’t be your friend. I buy it by the half gallon and drink it from the carton. By Friday I’m usually running low, but it’s a Friday so it’s okay.
It’s healthy and sweet, packed with protein and omega-3s and vitamins. I love my PB ‘n’ J with milk.
