"Unusually" Good Sandwich

Jimmy has always loved trying new foods. Since I don't like to cook my palate tends to be a bit boring as I eat the same things over and over. Fortunately, this has never stopped him from trying to widen the horizons of my taste-buds.

For instance, when we were first married he made the oddest concoction I'd ever heard of. I nearly died laughing when he sat before me a peanut butter, bacon, and pickle sandwich! I thought, "How strange can you get?" Well, his sandwich may have been weird, but what's even weirder was...I loved it.

I don't know why, but for some strange reason I got a hankering for this odd delicacy again, so off we went to get our supplies. I am happy to say that, just like the good old days, it was delicious and I encourage you to give it a try!

All you have to do is toast your bread, apply peanut butter, crispy bacon, and "Vlasic Bread and Butter Stackers" pickles. It's fast, easy, and delishy.





Mmmm! It's a perfect blend of sweet salty crunch. Let me know if you give it a try and what you think!

See my post on "courage". I'll have to muster up some of that before I can try your "delish" sandwhich! ha!

Oh I agree with Mommyluann, it would take a lot of courage to try it, i'm really glad you found something you really like and i am sure there are things that we all try but a lot of us it would take courage to try...
I pray that you are having a great day...

I LOVE peanut butter and consider it my most essential staple food, but it took me 40 years to be willing to try peanut butter on apples (which has always been my Dad's favorite thing). I still haven't even mustered up the courage to try pb and bananas.

I'll just have to believe by faith that is a good sandwich.

Blessings to you.

I love peanut butter, I love bread, I love pickles and I love bacon, but somehow can't see all those together on a sandwich tasting good.
I'll try anything (almost):) once!
Glad you enjoyed your sandwich.
Love,
Valerie

Hey Nancy,

Talking about Andy Griffith...I almost post a pic of Mr. Tucker and the apple. There were so many good one to choose from. We leave Sunday for the Outer Banks in NC. Wouldn't that be a treat to "see" Andy Griffith? I have a friend whose parents had a time share down at Manteo or near there. Bertie , her mom is in heaven now. A few years before she died she and her husband were down at Manteo in a Hardware store of all places ( not sure why they were in a Hardware store on vacation!) but in Walked Andy Griffith. She said he was so down to earth. She was fumbling to get words out and was trying to say his name. She kept pointing and saying You are...., You are...." and he finished her sentence and said "Andy Griffith???" and then shook her hand and politely posed for a picture. Too cute.

Have a blessed day!

UmmUmm! It's been a long time since I've had a peanut butter and pickle sandwich, but I love 'em! Never tried it with bacon, though...will have to give it a go! Just read your memorial day post, too. What a lovely tribute to your parents: the marriages of you and your siblings. Truly a blessing to read about such godly family. Happy anniversary!

Nancy,

I "dropped" by to say thank you for your sweet comment on my blog and to answer your question about nursing - but I can't.

I am sitting here at my desk feeling "stunned" or ....I don't know what the feeling is!

I read over your post and looked at the pictures and there...at the bottom...the last picture.....
That is my plate. I mean those are the plates that my family had before the enemy tore us to rubble and ruins!! I don't have them anymore and I don't even remember where I got them!

Thankfully, my Father has miraculously restored my marriage and our hearts and lives and is now at work in our children's lives. HE is the One and Only that can restore the "ancient ruins".

But, the plate...wow.

I will return to your blog to ask you about nursing and tell you about my experience so far. I am just sort of shell shocked.

Blessings,
Teri

HIS Daughter said...

One more thing! You have "my plates" from the "life" that was shattered and....your lab that graduated...you were right...that is exactly like my Sonny!

My "old" and my "new" on the same blog...hmmm...is there a lesson here?

Blessings!
Teri

Natalie said...

Thank you so much, Nancy, for your birthday greeting. I am so glad you visited me today. I must say that my mother has the exact same plate! It brings back fond memories of meals with my family. I look forward to getting to know you better.

Hmmm, think I'll have to trust you on the PBPB sandwich! Also, I have a friend who has the same plates as well!

Groovewoman said...

Ummmm yeah, I'm just gonna have to take your word on this that this is a good sandwich, because that doesn't look too appetizing.

Although it did make me start craving some pickles. Mmmmm Dill Pickles Good! :)
