So, there hasn’t been much food on No Meat No Meal lately. Some of you might be wondering what is up? Well the truth is that I made a couple of meals that were already featured on the blog. (Also, I ate out a lot this month…) And while I did do some candy making, I am planning on doing a Christmas Cookie Countdown later this fall so I want to save those recipes for later. Don’t worry, some new recipes are coming up soon including Avgolemono soup (Greek lemon chicken soup with rice.)
One thing I have been making lately are Peanut Butter and Honey sandwiches. Peanut butter and honey sandwiches are pretty much the only kind of peanut butter sandwich I eat. Well, except for peanut butter and raspberry preserve open-faced sandwiches on toast. Honey doesn’t work well on an open-faced sandwich because it starts dripping everywhere.
So, why am I talking about peanut butter sandwiches? I’m sure no one actually needs a recipe for a PB & H sandwich. But I have been doing some silly things with mine and I thought I’d share. Lately I have been trying to use up a jar of creamy peanut butter I bought to make peanut butter “nougat” for those Snickers Macarons. The problem is that I don’t really like creamy peanut butter. I prefer the texture of crunchy peanut butter. So I decided to make this peanut butter crunchy by adding a handful of peanuts (also from the macarons) to the sandwich! Awesome! These sandwiches are even crunchier than those made with crunchy peanut butter!
But you have to watch how you arrange the sandwich in the lunch bag or all the peanuts will migrate to one half of the sandwich!
Oh, and as a weird aside I recently found out that Mitt Romney is a big fan of PB & H sandwiches. Who knew?
