If you're looking for something to do today then get ready for a classic because it's National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day!  That's right; the sandwich that never goes out of style!  Let's get right into celebrating National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day!  


Do you really need to ask why people would want to celebrate this sandwich? How many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches do you think you've eaten in your lifetime? Probably a good amount, huh? So why not celebrate something that most people have eaten multiple times in their lives?  This is such a popular sandwich that a study conducted in 2002 showed that most kids in the United States will have eaten on average 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches before they graduate from high school! Now that's a popular sandwich!

All it takes is some bread, peanut butter and jelly and you're set! But you aren't limited when it comes to the type of bread, peanut butter or jelly you use. You have different choices for each of the ingredients but I will give you one simple suggestion. Don't pack a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch! When that jelly soaks into the bread it totally ruins the awesomeness of the sandwich! Trust me on that one... but if you think I'm wrong, go ahead and try it. You'll see!  Are you ready to slap a PB & J together?


So how can you celebrate today?  Well, for a lot of you it's going to be really easy.  Just head to your cabinet and pull out your peanut butter, head to the fridge and grab your jelly and then slap the two in between some bread.  BAM, celebrating!  But since it is a special occasion then why don't you make a double or triple decker PB & J?  Or maybe try a new kind of bread.  Or try some crunchy, smooth, natural or some other kind of peanut butter out to see which one you like the best.  I've even seen peanut butter and honey in one jar.  You could even try out grape, red raspberry, strawberry, blueberry or any other jam or jelly you can find today. 

They even have something called Goober that's peanut butter and jelly in one jar!  Or you could skip all that and buy some Uncrustables which are sealed, crustless peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  There are so many options, huh?  And to be honest, go ahead and look at the title of this holiday... it doesn't say SANDWICH!  So you could make anything that includes those two ingredients and you'd be celebrating in style.  How about a cake that's sweetened with jelly and then you make a peanut butter frosting?  How's a peanut butter and jelly milkshake sound?  And what if you coated chicken with jelly, grilled it and then dipped it in peanut butter?  If you try that last one let me know how it is!  Regardless of how you decide to celebrate today, I hope it's full of PB's and J's!
