This week I made a peanut butter and jelly (PB & J) sandwich for lunch. After I’d evenly spread the peanut butter on one side and the plum jelly smoothly on the other, I realized I forgot to toast it. There’s just something delish to me about a slightly warm and mildly crispy PB & J.
My dad, mom, and I enjoyed Tuna, Noodle, & Pea casserole. However, when we ate it, it was more of a one-dish wonder, since we didn’t put it into a casserole dish and bake it with chips or crackers on top. Now and then, I would hear my dad ask my mom to make it the way his mom made it (baked), but by then my brother and I preferred it unbaked. Now and again, she’d bake it just for dad.
