Peanut, peanut butter and jelly

Peanut butter is an unknown food in Ukraine, though by now it may be in the better supermarkets in the large cities like Kyiv or Dnipropetrovs'k.  When Ky was here in June to visit, she brought a jar of it with her in case she went into withdrawal.  I remembered we had it the other day and introduced Tanya to peanut butter and honey on toast.  She is hooked.

She has now had peanut butter and jam, peanut butter on celery and tomorrow I will introduce her to peanut butter and banana sandwiches.  Peanut butter and dill pickle and peanut butter and onion sandwiches may have to wait.

Unless we can find it in MegaMart or such, it will be a permanent addition to the care boxes sent by MEEST on a regular basis.  Along with Maple Syrup.  Cheez Whiz I can live without though a jar would be nice sometimes.


  1. Peanut butter and pickle sandwiches!!! Now I know what I want for lunch.

  2. My mom would make us peanut butter, chocolate chip, marshmallow and banana wraps all toasted and melty.

  3. LynnieC, me too except it is bedtime.
    PN, if I can find marshmallows, I will make it for Tanya. Another food we don't have YET.

  4. BD: Before Diabetes, my all time favorite sandwich was peanut butter with a ripe banana sliced on it and grape jam.......oozing.....and the aroma.....and the delightful combination of tastes and textures and the........cold, COLD glass of milk......and...and...

    damn diabetes!!!!!! *sigh*

  5. They do sell peanuts there right? You can get a peanut butter machine for about $50 U.S. and make your own. You'll be the hit of the neighborhood kids.
