April 2nd – National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day

We’re celebrating the best couple in history, and you know we aren’t foolin’ around because it’s April 2. Today is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day!

Even Barbie and Ken didn’t last, but peanut butter and jelly – or “PB&J” if you’re into acronyms – will always be inseparable, timeless and incredibly delicious.

Back in 2002, a survey revealed that the average PB&J-loving American eats 1,500 sandwiches before graduating high school. Now, that’s love.

 It is an easy sandwich to slap together on your way out the door in the morning. For those who don’t have time to spread peanut butter and jelly from two different jars, Smuckers made it even easier in 1968 when they introduced “Goober,” a jar with alternating stripes of peanut butter and jelly.

Of course, PB&J doesn’t restrict you to just these two complementary companions – toss in marshmallow fluff, bananas, honey, maple syrup, hazelnut spread, raisins, or even cheese, potato chips, bacon, pickles or onions.

If you want to try something a little different but still kid-friendly, peanut butter and jelly French toast is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. But,  let us know in the comments below your favorite way to PB&J – and if you’re adding anything funky to mix up your sandwich.

I must admit I do like a Peanut Butter & Jam sandwich every now and then!!!!!!!!!  Of course I try and go down the healthier route, sprouted grain bread, reduced fat peanut butter and reduced sugar jam!!!!!!

Breakfast – Simply Filling + 1 WPA

Baked Berry Breakfast Quinoa

Last night when I got home from work I baked up my breakfast for the balance of the week, so it would be in the fridge ready got me.  This morning I had Baked Berry Breakfast Quinoa.  You can bake it with any berry, I chose blueberries because I normally have them in my fridge  They are such a versatile little fruit.  Good for cooking and good for just eating!!  I really, really enjoyed it with a small glass of Fat Free Milk.  Any breakfast that has a protein boost to it always keeps me going through the morning!

Lunch – 100% Simply Filling

Lunch 1st

I had a repeat of yesterday’s lunch.  I love Split Pea Soup!!!  This one is really good too.

Dinner – 100% Simply Filling

Asian Beef 4

For dinner this evening I made Beef & Broccoli.  I made this a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed it.  When I looked at the ingredient list it was all simply filling!  Served it up with some brown rice which is also Simply Filling.  I have Zumba at 7pm, so I fixed this after I came in.
