PEEAANNUUUUUUUTT, peanut butter...

...and jelly, jelly. You all know the song so sing along! Last Thursday, I went to a Salad Supper at the church we've been attending. When I went to sign up, all the salads were taken and I was left with making peanut butter sandwiches. You could say I was more than disappointed with my assignment but I tried to make the best of it. Here's what I came up with.

I used the crusts from the sandwiches to make croutons for DH. I really like to cook, especially for other people, so that's why I was bummed with PB sandwiches so I just had to get in touch with my creative side. When I got there, I swear there was every kind of salad you could ever imagine...tuna salad, chicken salad, Jello salad, fruit salad, pasta salad, regular salad and the salads never stopped! It was a nice meal because I had a little of each, they were all light and I wasn't super stuffed at the end. There was a lady who did a cookie decorating demo and she owned over 8,000 cookie cutters?! Holy Moly! I own about 10!!!

When the lady at my table found out that I'd made the PB sandwiches, she said, "OH! Are yours the ones that look like a quilt?" So what do you think? Would you grab one of these yummy delicious PB sandwiches???
