Freaky Friday

Yeah, so I’m sure that’s a post title you haven’t seen today? What can I say, I’m an original! *brushes fingertips across chest*

So, anybody have any weird and crazy things happen to them today? I’m not superstitious, but if there is ONE thing you learn when working in the hospital, it is this: there is SOME truth in the whole cycle of the moon/Friday the 13th thing…don’t believe me? Venture into an emergency room on the next full moon…it won’t take long to see the signs (bonus points if they look like dude from the bookstore!)

Now that I’m off work, I can officially say (without jinxing myself) that today was surprisingly a fairly normal day. So what makes this post worthy of the “Freaky Friday” title? Well, that would be my latest PB&J obsession!

Watch out PB&J Hummus, there’s a new kid in town!

When Jessica told me about her favorite PB&J, I have to admit I was a little curious. But then, the more I thought about it, the more I COULDN’T STOP thinking about it…I mean, seriously? Peanut butter and jelly with barbecue tofu?!?!

Is that girl on crack?!

So I bought this

and some bread

Anyone tried this brand before? Seriously, it’s the best thing since sliced…wait,
uh, you know what I mean!

Soft, pillowy, and DELICIOUS!

Yes officer, I recognize him. The short one with the black hat…
he’s the one that took over my PB&J!

The unsuspecting PB&J

Then for the fun!

Sneak peek

Going for a bite!

Mmmmm! Smack yo mama!

That girl is most definitely NOT on crack!

But this sandwich is definitely MY crack!

Thick and gooey peanut butter

Sweet FROG (fig, raspberry, orange, ginger) preserves

Sweet ‘n spicy barbecue sauce

Soft cushy bread

And a glass of almond milk!

BEST.SANDWICH.EVER!

And, because I can never leave well enough alone…

Somewhere, a vegetarian/vegan just died at the sight of this.

There is probably a special place in hell for people who combine tofu and bacon.

I’ll bring the marshmallows!

πŸ˜‰

Barbecue chicken PB&J anyone?

Ok, so I was having a bit of fun with this…but then the REAL magic happened!

*Light bulb*

Peanut butter and jelly
with pan-fried chicken breast in stir-fry sauce (or soy sauce)
chopped scallions and a
sprinkle of
sesame seeds

Don’t

Knock it

Till

You try it!

How do you like your PB&J? Any Elvis lovers out there? Are Jess & I the only weirdos?

  1. I AM SO INTRIGUED RIGHT NOW. Hahaha I’m a big fan of peanut butter + raspberry jelly + banana… I really want to try some new combos though! I also love peanut butter with honey and cinnamon πŸ™‚

  2. Missy says:

    Funniest.line.ever – “I’ll bring the marshmallows”! I about died laughing! I don’t knock any food combos – but those are interesting to say the least! I like peanut butter mixed with maple syrup and eaten with bacon – it’s divine!

    And yes I know about full moons and hospitals – just look at the babies born! We always notice that.

  3. carlee says:

    I saw this on Jessicas! I am SO trying it…SOON.

  4. Gillian says:

    This has been in my mind since I saw it on her blog! I’m definitely going to have to try it, if only just to get it out of my head.

  5. You’re so silly =) I would totally eat these if you made me them! and that bread ROCKS! even paul loves it better than white bread! =)

  6. jodie says:

    I dont like bacon but why am I drooling at the site of the others???

  7. Hahaha! Even if I was a vegetarian, I wouldn’t eat bacon- I never liked it- but I’m really curious to try the banana/PB/bacon combo! I need to get some fak’n bacon πŸ™‚

    I totally forgot it was Friday the 13th until I went to work this morning. There must be a full moon or something, because all the kids at the daycare I work at were acting even more awful than normal!

    • Ohhh yeah, it would be awesome with some fakin’ bacon! Yum!

      I used to work in a daycare when I was in high school. I swear kids are like animals…they have some sort of sixth sense when it comes to those things! Little devils!

  8. Emilia says:

    Why is the new trend around the blogworld savory and sweet? Black bean brownies, tempeh- PB-pumpkin sandwiches, chicken and PB&J. Crazy I tell you- everybody must be on crack! πŸ™‚

    I’m sure stir- fry sauce, peanut butter and chicken go well together. I have no doubts about that. But jelly, too? Hehe. πŸ™‚

  9. Veronica says:

    OK, I totally cracked up about the special place in hell for people who combine tofu and bacon!!!! I once wrapped a Quorn fake chik’n breast in bacon (and dredged it in a mixture of chili powder and brown sugar) so I guess I’ll be joining you there. hehehehehe I don’t think you’re a freak for making a sandwich like this–I would totally do it! And probably will! I’ve made an Elvis and thought it was OK. I think this would be better.

  10. Can you get any more amazing? Seriously. I think I might love you. Jenny mentioned liking peanut butter and bacon sandwiches and I thought that was a good idea; so bacon, pb & j, bbq tofu and jelly? I’m almost tempted to do that and I don’t even eat meat πŸ˜› And bbq chicken. I’m not dying at the sight, don’t worry! I respect good ideas when I sees ’em.
    I haven’t tried that bread yet – but I’ve seen it and it’s about half the price of the VT Bread Co. bread I’ve been buying. It looks really good, and if it passes your taste test I might just have to try it for myself!

    • Awww, shucks! I think I’m blushin! So glad I didn’t scare you away my little herbivore friend! πŸ˜‰

      The bread is fantastic! So light and fluffy! If I didn’t know any better, I’d say it was white!

  11. lindsay says:

    no food combos are weird to me! did you see my egg, spicy peanut, and ketchup sandwich? haha. Bring it!

  12. Jenny says:

    **YES!!!!** finally someone who can understand my addiction. I used to eat PB&bacon sandwiches all the time when I was younger. They are perfection!

    oh! and I’ve made peanut butter and bacon pancakes as well. to. die. for. I know you will love them πŸ™‚ http://www.peanutbutterjenny.com/2010/12/01/when-life-hands-you-bacon/

    • Oh ho ho hoooooo! I know what tomorrow’s Pancake Sunday is going to feature! πŸ˜‰

      And my mom makes the best chicken pot pie too…though I haven’t had it in forever!

  13. Katie says:

    I ADORE and LOVE the PB and Chicken Combo! I used to eat that a lot!!!!!

    U cracked my ass up girl!!! LOVED the ‘ there is prob a place in hell for people combine bacon and tempeh ‘ lol!!

  14. You totally just rocked my world. I swear, only bloggers can come up with this stuff!! πŸ™‚ Kudos to you for having the guts to even try it!

  15. This is why I love the blog world… People come up with some of the most amazing things that I would never be able to come up with on my own. I used to be totally grossed out by a lot of the odd sounding combinations I came across, but after trying and loving so many of them, I’m pretty much open to anything. This combo is definitely going on my “to make” list. Mrow.

    • I was the same way at first…”spinach? In a smoothie? Is this girl crazy??” Luckily, I’ve always been too curious for my own good because I haven’t looked back since!

  16. you seriously just proved why we live
    holy crapballs
    this is
    insane
    best post
    ever

  17. Jenny says:

    Wow everything looks amazing!!! I don’t think any food combo is weird to me anymore. I’ve never had a pb bacon sammie ever, definitely intriguing! My friends think everything that I eat is disgusting. I was told yesterday that pb with oatmeal is incredibly gross…It was hard to refrain from slapping my friend lol

  18. girl you craaazy and i love it πŸ˜‰ way to spice up the good ole pb&j… lots of fun possibilities! πŸ™‚

  19. Brittany says:

    OHh my gosh, your PB&J’s are awesome! I couldn’t help but laugh as I saw each new creation. I could feel your excitement through the computer.!! YUMMM.

  20. caitlinoco says:

    So I still stick with either raisins or cottage cheese on my PB&J but I’d be willing to keep my options open, tofu actually sounds really good!

  21. DiningAndDishing says:

    Interesting!! Peanut butter, banana and bacon is about as crazy as I’ve gotten :).

  22. Ginger&Rice says:

    I am in love with this post! I do a PB sandwich with bacon and maple syrup.
    I’m gonna have to try that BBQ though.

  23. Priyanka says:

    I totally love weird combos. Your ideas are amazing, love the PB and j and tofu combo!

  24. I have to say that at first I was like…wtf weirdest combo ever… but I ain’t gonna knock it till I try it!!! You bring the marshmallows and I’ll bring the chocolate and graham crackers! HAHA, awesome post! πŸ™‚

  26. I’m intrigued. My son loves PB&J with a slice of cheese: http://tootimidandsqueamish.blogspot.com/2011/03/danwich.html

    He had me try it, and I wasn’t really a fan, but your chicken one sounded good to me.

  27. I like PB and pickles, but I think I’m gonna have to leave this combo up to you, babe! πŸ˜‰

  30. You CRACK me up!! “I’ll bring the marshmallows’!! Ha!

    So where do you get FROG jam? Sounds yummy!!

    I guess I like ‘sweet’ PB&J’s more than savory… but then again, I dunno if I have ever tried a savory PB&J?! My favorite combination is Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter with Boysenberry Jam from Trader Joe’s!

    • I got the FROG preserves from the farmer’s market in Nashville. I’ve never been a huge fan of orange marmalade, but I couldn’t resist a combo with fig in it (my fave)! I swear it totally made this sandwich!

      Hmm, don’t think I’ve ever had boysenberry jam before. I’ll have to check it out on my next TJ’s run!

    I heart pb with savory goods.
