A Meal that will Plug You Up

Unfortunately, we didn’t eat before our cultural excursion on Saturday night, so by the end of the Pink Martini set, I was starving. And really, I couldn’t enjoy them as much as I wanted to since I was so hungry, and I feel bad, since I am sure they are great on a full stomach. We tried to go to a local quick serve place (Taco Milagro) that was supposed to be open until midnight, but by 1030pm when we got there, there was no more food being served and it was just a scene (live music, all the hoochies out in full force, the usual).

So we came on home, assuming at most places are 1) closed or 2) mainly bars by 11pm. I toasted up some very hearty 12-grain bread that we had to make some PBJs for us. Boom told me he just wanted PB, no J. Then he proceeded to make his signature PB and cheese sandy.

I had totally forgotten about that fav of his. I’ve never tasted a PBC, despite Boom’s repeated badgering of me to do so. He’s all like, You like peanut butter and you love cheese. The combo of them together is delish – how could it NOT be?!

  1. It is time to “Pull the Plug” on the myth that Peanut Butter and Cheese are not natural snacking compatriots. Recent archealogical findings support the combination of cheese and peanut butter all the way back to the stone age. Rudimentary cave drawings and handtools indicate the wooly mamoth milk was churned into cheese and combined with a milled peanut based past to create a tasty snack used to help the neanderthal man survive the long cold winter seasons. It is believed that this snack was also used by the Norse warriors and trappers to help survive the long treks across Iceland and Greenland on big game hunts.

    It was not until the late 1800s early 1900s that the two staples took inexplicably different paths when peanut butter was combined with jam/jelly/bananas and other sweet fruit flavored products while cheese was combined with salty meats.
    Theorists believe that it was the invention of the ice-box that was the driving force in the separation of these products.

    The cheese and peanut-butter sandwich made a strong come-back in the late 1960s when NASA combined this tasty snack with a sweet orange drink TANG as the primary food source for astronauts training for the “moon misssion.” if you watch closely you can actually see that Neal Armstrong has a cheese and peanut-butter sandwich in his hand just prior to emerging from the space capsule to set foot on the moon.

    The snack has ebbed and flowed since with the tide of numerous faddish American diets that have swept the nation.
    A few noble individuals, such as Boom Boom, have made efforts to make sure that this teasure is not lost and will be enjoyed for generations to come.

    We should all take a minute to show our appreciation for these individuals (cowboys/pilgrims/enablers/patriots/barrons/financiers) whatever you might call them!

  2. hmmm…is that just bs or does john really know what he’s talking about πŸ˜‰ ??
    i would like to try a pb and cheese sandwich – it does look quite yummy πŸ™‚

  3. So I knew Boom would have some kind of witty comeback for that post, but WOW, little did I know!!

    Even though I believe it to be 99% b.s., it was credible enough sounding that I give him an A+!

    hehe πŸ™‚

  4. p.s. That post totally made me crave a PB sandwich yesterday – not PB-C, but PBJ or PB-banana, although I never did make one. After all this talk, maybe I will have to try the historical PB-C after all, just to be able to say I have….
