PB&L (L = Love)

Why did  this amaze me enough to take a picture of it? 

My mom sent me some delicious homemade strawberry jam, some peanut butter, and a loaf of bread. Finding myself hungry yesterday, I decided to crack open all three items to make a nostalgic PB&J.  I dipped my knife into the smooth, unmolested top of the peanut butter and thought...

Just beautiful. 

Notice how the dollop on my knife still has the memory of its days as an unappreciated but pure addition to the rest of the jarred peanut butter. And also see how half of the top of the peanut butter is still smooth.  


So I took a picture. I never used to notice this phenomenon when I ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches daily as a kid. I was so young and naïve.

I can't even tell you the magic that happened when I put the sandwich in my mouth. 


  1. You, my friend, are ADORABLE.

    That is all.

  2. ahhhh....the simple things in life truly are the best things in life! Keep on appreciating these things, bub!


  3. what's even weirder: i've only been scooping down one side of the jar. some of the original top of the peanut butter is still intact.

  4. Okay, now you're acting like Mags! Only eating from one side of her bowl at a time! :-)
