ok, we good? yes, moving on...

i like my peanut butter on a peanut butter, banana, and mayonnaise sandwich. preferably with hellman's mayonnaise, and the thickest white bread you can find that's still soft.

Many years ago, my little brother bought a kids' cookbook by Emeril Lagasse. My favorite recipe was for a peanut butter, jelly, and marshmallow sandwich. I don't have the exact recipe, but it's kind of like this (use whatever amounts you like):

Peanut butter
Jam/preserves
Marshmallow fluff
Softened butter
Sliced bread

Stir together PB, J, and fluff until swirled. Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. Spread the PB mixture on the other side of one of the slices. Top with the other slice of bread, buttered side out. Toast in a pan until GBD. Enjoy the gooey deliciousness.

Peanut Butter
tomato
miracle whip
bread

It's a really good sandwich and one of the few things that I'll make with miracle whip.

Substitute lettuce for the tomato and you have my favorite sandwich from childhood :D

No exact recipe, but I like to make what we called fake Bit O'Honey:

Mix creamy peanut butter with honey and powdered sugar. Mixture should be firm, then roll into a cylinder and place on some foil that has been sprinkled with powdered sugar. Wrap the candy and place in freezer to firm up for a couple hours. Pull out, open foil and slice into rounds and YUM!!!!!!

This is a variation on Sesame Noodles:

Whole Wheat Pasta with Cucumber and Spicy Peanut Sauce

3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
1 cup hot water
20 ounces whole wheat pasta
2 medium cucumbers, peeled, seeded, halved and cut diagonally into 1/8-inch slices
1 cup thinly sliced scallions

In a blender combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, red pepper flakes, sesame oil and hot water until smooth. In a pot of boiling salted water, boil the pasta until just tender; transfer to colander and rinse briefly under cold water. Drain the pasta noodles well. In a large bowl, toss noodles with peanut sauce, cucumbers, scallions and red peppers. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately at room temperature. Makes 6-8 servings.

SPICY SICHUAN NOODLES (DAN DIN MIAN)
from: http://www.snickollet.blogspot.com

1 lb. or so "Asian-style" noodles. At my supermarket, I can find these in the section with tofu, etc. They are packaged in 9 oz. packages, so I use two. You can also just use a pound of dried linguine.
1 lb. ground pork
6 T. soy sauce, divided
1/4 c. sherry
1/4 c. oyster sauce
1/2 c. natural-style peanut butter, crunchy or smooth
2 T. rice vinegar
2 c. chicken stock
2 T. minced fresh ginger
10 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 t. red pepper flakes
2 T. sesame oil

For serving: bean sprouts and minced scallions

1. Combine pork, 2 T. soy, sherry, and a bit of fresh-ground black pepper in a bowl. Mix well with fork. Set aside.
2. Whisk together oyster sauce, remaining soy (4 T.), peanut butter, vinegar, chicken stock, and a bit more pepper in medium bowl. Set aside.
3. Combine ginger, garlic, and red pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.
4. Set water to boil for noodles.
5. Heat a bit of peanut or vegetable oil in large skillet until very hot. Add pork. Brown pork well, breaking up large chunks with spatula. Stir in ginger/garlic/red pepper mix and cook until fragrant (about 1 minute). Add chicken stock mixture and stir well to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until thickened.
6. Stir in sesame oil.
7. Drain noodles and serve topped with a generous sprinkle of bean sprouts and minced scallion.

Charlene, I'm intrigued!
So, do you eat it like bread...or cake/yanno like banana bread?
Have you toasted it?
Wonder how it would be as French Toast?!

I made the peanut butter bread today and served it as PB & J shortcake, with macerated strawberries and whipped cream. It was awfully good. I knew I already had the strawberries so I left it plain but I would like to try it with a layer of chocolate cream cheese in the middle.

It's not as moist as banana bread or as sweet as you think it would be. Toasting would be good but I think you'd have to toast or dry it to keep it together for French toast. You don't have the gluten to hold it together, or at least I didn't using the limited mixing sweet bread method.

Sounds good, okbye. I've added PB Bread to my list of things I want to make.

Thanks for the recipes! (and sandwich ideas...I did have one of them, not too bad) :D

The winner is Charlene for the peanut butter bread! It was delicious and my husband and parents loved it. I didn't have any buttermilk on hand so I did half sour cream and half milk/lemon juice mixture. It was actually pretty moist and held together well. The edges got all nice and crispy which was delicious. I ate mine with some nutella and strawberries, and hubby just ate it plain. He doesn't go for sweets very often and appreciated its flavor without being too sweet.

Have a good night!
