Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

My favorite sandwich was and is a banana sandwich.


1. Slice bananas

2. Slice 2 green onions, including most of the green stems

3. Spread mayonnaise on 2 slices of white bread

4. Layer the bananas on one slice of bread and sprinkle green onions over

5. Top with second slice of bread.

6. Cut sandwich in half, lengthwise.

Enjoy memories of childhood.

I don’t know when I made up this sandwich recipe.

My mother put peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in our lunch bags.

My father made grilled cheese sandwiches with Velveeta  for Sunday supper. These old favorites were prepared on Good Morning America, in honor of Velveeta’s 75th anniversary.

Eventually, I started eating egg salad and tuna salad sandwiches.

And, of course, I discovered the runner-up to my favorite, bacon-lettuce-tomato (BLT) sandwiches.

BLTs are really good with standing-over-the-sink, fresh-from-the-garden tomatoes you can only get at the peak of tomato season, late summer.

Are you getting fresh tomatoes now?

After a business trip to New York City some years ago, I discovered there is simply nothing better in this world than a hot pastrami on rye from Carnegie Deli’s for the train ride home.
