Cherished Memory

Cherished Memory

The peanuts and clip are so old they are from before I started keeping track - I have no idea where I got them. Sorry. :(

I wanted a snack tonight and thought I'd have a pbj and it made me think of this: When I was young my Dad took the same thing to work in his lunch every day: 2 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches - bread, butter, peanut butter and cherry preserves. One day when I was about 10, I wanted to make his sandwiches for him and Mom let me. I got to work - bread, peanut butter, and jelly - I didn't know about the butter. I was careful to put the same number of cherry pieces on each sandwich, artfully arranging them evenly over my pallette. : ) That night, Dad, not knowing I had made the sandwiches that morning mentioned that his sandwiches seemed kind of dry . . . . .. who knew I needed a recipe? lol! I've never left the butter off since - it really does make a difference!

I'll have to say, this is the first time I've taken a photo to fit a layout rather than setting up a layout to go with a photo! :)

    Oh, this is a great page subject! Food really is a memory keeper. TFS!! :)
    What a wonderful page. I can see you carefully placing those cherries. Love your journaling and the photo and "recipe."
