PBJ du Jour #3 - Peanut Butter and Mayonnaise



I had to try it.

I had to try it because I was getting sick of, "Oh, you like peanut butter and banana sandwiches? Well, you must like peanut butter and mayonnaise then, right? Right?"

Now I have the Answer: Not so much.

So I tried it. I didn't want the peanut butter to have to go it alone, so I sent some banana along as well. I put the mayonnaise on one half of the slice of pumpernickel, and the peanut butter and banana on the other half. I closed my eyes and took a bite.

I find that I'd rather have just plain peanut butter and banana. The mayonnaise didn't do much for the sandwich, and what little it contributed was not good. It lent a slightly sour, slightly eggy taste to the sandwich--not enough to make me toss it out, but enough to convince me that this was the only time I'd eat a peanut butter and mayonnaise sandwich.






Tamara fared a little better. She went with the more standard setup, with the slight alteration of a maraschino cherry. (I removed the stem). Unfortunately, the pitted cherry still had a pit in it.

**Idea for pbj sandwich- try spreading Nutella on top of the peanut butter- it's that chocolatey-haselnutty-peanut buttery combo...
You put bananana or little chocolate chips on top of that.
Isn't your mouth watering right how? Hmmm???
