Magazine Monday #14: Mary Katherine's D.A. PB&J


If any of you guys are in the "early to mid-30's but still technically a Millennial" phase of life, you may remember Disney Adventures Magazine.  I had a subscription to DA beginning with the first issue and for many years after, and I'm pretty sure my penchant for ripping recipes out of magazines started with today's recipe.

Back in 1994, DA Magazine apparently had a contest where kids could send in crazy sandwich combinations, and the magazine staff picked the best ("best ") ones and made them.


In celebration of National PB&J Day, which is today, I decided to make the winner, which came from a young lady named Mary Katherine Findley, age 9, of Hoover, Alabama.  (I tried to find Mary Katherine on Facebook, but I didn't have any luck.  She was 9 in 1994, which puts her right around my age now, so it would have been interesting to see what she's doing these days.)

Her entry says "Hey, D.A. staff, try this sandwich.  Don't blame me if you barf," which is super charming.

So I tried this 24-year-old sandwich recipe, and it was...nothing, really.  It was kind of boring.  And I did not barf.  I wouldn't recommend it.  (Sorry, Mary Kathrine!)

Mary Katherine's D.A. PB&J
Makes 1 sandwich


Ingredients

2 slices bread, toasted
2 Tbsp. peanut butter
2 Tbsp. jelly
A handful of barbeque-flavored chips
1/2 pack of nutty buddy bars (1 bar)

I feel like you know how to make a PB&J sandwich.

Spread the peanut butter on one piece of bread and the jelly on the other piece of bread.

Crumble the nutty buddy bar on the peanut butter side.  Add the chips on top of that.  Put the other piece of bread, jelly-side down, on top.

Voila.  Sandwich.
