Sandwch King. At least to toddlers.

So Peanut Butter and Jelly Day is a thing. And it's April 2nd every year. If you didn't know that I'm sorry about your life up until this point. But you may start living now with the knowledge that the world's love for peanut butter and jelly merits celebration.

What time is it?

Now PB & J has been a favorite sandwich for most of us since we were kids. If you're not one of those people, what kind of monster are you? Regardless bread, jelly and peanut butter are a timeless classic. So of course let's take it and bastardize it into some crazy (and awesome) alternate incarnations. Recipes included (though, ya know, they're still PB & J.) Ready go.

Right off the bat, PB & J Pizza:

Sweet dessert pizzas are hit and miss but you can bet on this one being tasty. This recipe is pretty obvious, but if your feeling real crazy try making the crust out of sugar cookie dough.

Next, PB & J Sushi:

Dawwwwwwww

Huge waste of time you say? Well maybe but they are really adorable. And personally I like to eat as much of my food as I can with chopsticks, and sandwiches aren't easy. Check them out here (be careful, they're tricky.)

Alright let's get weird. Spicy Peanut Butter and Pepper Jelly Wings:

So it's cheating a little bit, turning a sweet into entirely savory. Still an interesting (and tasty) eating experience to be sure. But dig on this. You're a CoolGuy right? Why not just go all out in the name of PB & J Day and make the wings full on sweet? Nix the chili flakes, pepper, sriracha, and probs the soy sauce. Replace the pepper jelly with strawberry and keep the peanut butter it's regular sweet and saltyness. You could even use a Thai style peanut sauce. Mmmm I think we're onto something.

And for drunk, PB & J Shots:

Drink your calories like an adult.

Like I would leave out an alcohol recipe. Pfft. Really simple and while it's made with hazelnut, I promise you will taste PB & J.

Hopefully that whets your appetite for the timeless classic and prepares you for proper celebration and admiration. Here's a cute little graphic (which I sadly did not make) with a few more ideas for PB & J extended enjoyment. Also have you tried one with pickles? Don't knock it.With all these ideas you could eat PB & J a different way for a while. Have I said PB & J enough? Answer is no. PB & J. Good day.
