Comfort Food

PBJ sandwiches. No matter what life throws at me, I can rely on the good old peanut butter and jelly sandwich to lift my mood. It takes me back to being a kid, with no worries or cares. It reminds me of a time, sitting outside and eating this wonderful concoction in the summer, a glass of chocolate milk to wash it down. Real chocolate milk, not that skim milk healthy crap they have today. The peanut butter has to be Jif creamy peanut butter and the jelly either Welch’s grape or Smuckers Cherry preserves. A cold Pepsi replaces the milk and potato chips are now added to the plate, but the sandwich is the center, the life ring to cling to in troubled times. Any substitute and it isn’t the same and will bring no comfort to my troubled mind and body.

    I never liked peanut butter, but ate it anyway hoping it would add a few pounds to my needy frame. I’m glad you found, and still find, comfort in it. You expressed it well. I agree with you on the chocolate milk. Most tastes watered down compared to the rich drink we enjoyed as kids.
