Join Diane, MotherOwl, Mimi and me as we dish up some more good eating. You can post your poem in the comments or on your own blog; if you do the latter, please leave a note in the comments so we can find you and applaud your work.
Use the topic or choose another -- it's all good. The idea is to work our brains and have some fun.
At first, it was hard for me to pick a favourite snack. There are so many healthy -- and unhealthy -- candidates. Bagels, grapes and cheese, cereal, even a baked potato, fall into the healthy category of things I snack on. Potato chips, baked goodies, chocolate and sweets, while they are very pleasing to the tastebuds, sadly do not.
But when I asked myself what I wouldn't want to do without for even one day, the answer came to me loud and clear: peanut butter and banana.
Peanut butter alone is too sticky and tastes harsh to me. Banana alone is too astringent and . . . banana-y.
But together, they are a slice of heaven ... to me, anyway. I know people who gag at the thought. And others who understand completely.
I also know folks who meditatively slice their banana and dish up their pb, put it all on a plate and eat it daintily with a fork.
I am not one of those folks. This is why we have two hands, people! Half a banana in one hand, with the peeling gradually descending, and a spoonful of peanut butter in the other hand. A bite from the left hand, a lick from the right hand, repeat, repeat, repeat! (Lefties might want to switch hands 😛)
My Favourite Snack And A Terrible Rhyme
Some folks like their peanut butter onto celery spread
While others like it thickly piled atop their favourite bread
And then there are the ones who have their p.b. bread with honey
And ones who add molasses even though it's awfully runny
Bacon goes with peanut butter, so I have been told
Although I'll never try it, who am I to be a scold?
Another combination which I've seen but never tried
Is peanut butter added to a dish that's been stir-fried
The ultimate in combos (though it's hardly healthy food)
Is chocolate-peanut-butter cups -- oh my! those things are good
But I'm content to make my snack from p.b. and banana
It's yummy and I hope it adds some years to my lifespana
If you're a fan of odd peanut butter combinations, go here for more ideas. And tell me about your own favourite way to eat it -- if you eat it at all.*****
And shall we have a few funnies to round out our snack?
Hope you're staying well and happy and enjoying some of your favourite snacks.
