Food for Friday – Peanut Butter, Bananas and Honey.

Sometimes kid food is the simplest and most satisfying stuff. You can’t beat good old peanut butter and jelly (on wheat bread with strawberry jam, if you please). One step up from PBJ is peanut butter with bananas and honey. I was trying to figure out something to feed my two-year-old for lunch out of a pantry with dwindling supplies on a snowy day. I was out of jelly, but for once in a blue moon, had some honey on the top shelf of my spice cabinet. After I made an open-faced sandwich for him, I thought it looked pretty good and made one for myself. Mmmmmm. Maybe I was just really hungry. Or maybe the combination of hearty wheat toast, grainy all-natural peanut butter, creamy ripe bananas, and just a glaze of sweet honey is one for the ages. Seamus didn’t end up eating most of his, so I helped him finish. And I’ve had it for breakfast every morning since.

I’m sure you don’t need a recipe. Just toast a piece of bread, smear on some peanut butter, add sliced bananas and a drizzle of honey, and enjoy being transported back to when you were five and all you had to worry about was that your gloves would dry quickly enough on the radiator for you to go back out in the snow after lunch.
