I’ve spoken before about the perfect PB & J in this comic. Clearly a topic close to my heart.
It’s true, I don’t know if you ever “feel like an adult”. I still feel like a big kid, and part of me hopes I always do. I still feel like telling a girl she has cooties and chasing after her anyway. You know cooties is real, right? Totally real.
Feeling like a kid is something that I think is very important to creative-types. I don’t mind responsibilities, lord knows I have plenty, but it’s the child-like moments that let you cope with stress, see things from a new perspective, and enjoy the little things. It’s something Rossmom taught me from a young age. How about you?
Oh, and that PB & J recipe? I’m going to take a lot of flak for this I’m sure, so go ahead and post your own interpretations. Here’s mine:
ROSSCOTT’S PERFECT PB&J
2 Slices of wheat bread
1 Jar of Skippy(tm) peanut butter (I prefer chunky)
1 Jar of strawberry jam
Toast the bread first. This is key. Then spread peanut butter on both pieces of bread. Less than you think, because you’re putting it on both pieces, but enough to cover it fully. Then spread the jelly on top of the peanut butter on just one piece (it’s in the middle so it doesn’t matter). This seals in the jelly so it doesn’t bleed into the bread, and makes the taste more even. If you’re feeling extra crazy, throw some banana slices in there too!
If you make it, let me know what you think! Trust me, the details are worth it.
Okay, go forth and enjoy. Get on the swing set, it was always my favorite. (Or, if you’re feeling more “adult”, go see Thor.)
