So, the Spouse has gone Paleo, the Cute Chicks still have their Autism food issues (no gluten, no casein, nothing too saucy or squishy, veggies raw, fruit or cookies for dessert. They love spaghetti as long as the sauce never touches the noodles.) So Spouse requires a special meal, Chicks require a special meal and I usually end up with a bowl of soup and a sammich.
Tonight, everybody has salad, then Spouse is on to liver and onions, steamed veggies, and quinoa with garlic; chicks have a GFCF pizza. And everybody has oatmeal raisin cookies. And me? I'm having an OCD PB&J.
So here's how I do it. Take two slices of bread out of the bag, avoiding the heel like ebola, and open them side by side mirror image. You want them to line up when you close the sammich. Spread peanut butter on BOTH pieces of bread, I'll tell you why in a minute, no globs and no flopping over the edges. Peanut butter must cover the full surface right up to the crust. I never use jelly, it's a globby spreading nightmare. Always jam, spread lightly across the peanut butter without disturbing it, stopping about 1/4 to 1/8 inch of the edges. Now, why is there peanut butter on both sides? Because it sticks together, sealing in the jelly. With your bread perfectly aligned, cut carefully on the diagonal.
And now everybody is fed and happy.
