Does anything taste better than a PBJ sandwich? Maybe a toasted PBJ sandwich suitcase style?

Do you have a good recipe for cooking them you could share?

Challenge your taste buds with different kinds of jelly. My long-time favorite is strawberry preserves, but I also use different kinds of English marmalade and even ginger preserves.

I prefer chunky. Yet another indication (as Khan would say) that I am not really a woman?

Am thinking of going big-time and switching to organic PB, as I've heard it tastes better than commercial.

Great breakfast, Amethyst.
I also prefer chunky--and ginger preserves!

Trader Joe's carries a good peanut butter that you have to stir. Creamy unsalted for me.

I grew up on peanut butter and iceberg lettuce sandwiches. The lettuce does a decent job of keeping the peanut butter from sticking to the roof of your mouth.

The chunky stuff is good for stir fry and baking.

Lsbcal has just posted a poll on our self-evaluation of our health.

Now, that's an "indicator of wealth" that cannot be bought with dollars. Along with that, there are many others, such as relationship with others, like a spouse or SO, family members, friends, etc...

3 times the price for organic at one store I go too - there's your wealth indicator.
I like the regular that doesn't separate. Unfortunately, I think that's partially hydrogenated oil, one of the few food items I actively avoid.

(We actually also had a Caesar salad prepared at the table in our last dinner out for steak.)

PB or baloney with mustard reminds me of hard times. Not that I don't still enjoy them but definitely not in this thread.

For me, peanut butter, cheese and eggs bring back memories of times that were good, but also hard. Indicators of wealth for us back then sure were different than they are today. It helps to remember that once in a while.

After that dinner with braised lamb shank, I have been eating light. It's tough to eat heavy meals day in day out.

But I have never had a peanut butter sandwich in my life, if anyone can believe that. I can eat it, but I just do not have the habit. I eat peanuts plenty, but in the form of dry roasted.

And it's been forever since I ate jelly. Nothing wrong with jelly either, but I'd rather have a ham-n-cheese sandwich.

I think it was a New England thing. I get the same comments now that I am in the Midwest.

For breakfast, peanut butter on toast with fresh fruit, usually peaches or whatever else is available.

I think you are behind times. We had quite a big discussion about it at work.
Older guys (let say >50) were talking & lusting about cars, restoring their Corvettes, etc.
Out of the younger crowd, almost nobody cared (2 dudes). They don't mind nicer, comfortable ones, but super-cars or classics are not on their radars.
This was a sample of around 40 engineers (including 3 women), I'm guessing ages from late twenties to sixties.
