Breakfast on a Tuesday

the simplest of breakfasts.

this is also my refuge whilst in the midst of veganism during lent or after a night of culinary indulgence.

whole grain toast, light smear of dijon, and thinly sliced lady pink apple. paired here with green tea.

Grilled Peanut Butter, Banana, and Chocolate Sandwich

I told you I would try to take a picture!

This sandwich is RICH. Pair with salty items or a nice big dill pickle (neither of which i had, so here i ate it along side some summer squash and green peppers, and some figs on romaine hearts with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese). This also makes a good afternoon snack for kiddos. Make as directed below, except cut into thin sticks and pair with a nice tall glass of milk. Your children will wear delightful chocolate joker grins and milky mustaches too cute for wiping.

Grilled Peanut Butter, Banana, and Chocolate Sandwich

2 slices whole grain bread
1-2 tablespoons peanut butter (i used creamy, but chunky would be just as tasty)
1/2 of a semi ripe banana, sliced (bright yellow with no brown spots--maybe even a little green on the tips--over ripe bananas make this sandwich a bit too rich)
10-12 semi-sweet chocolate chips
itsy bitsy pat of butter

Heat a non-stick skillet on medium high. Spread peanut butter on one slice. Top with sliced banana and evenly disperse chocolate chips. Cover with other slice of bread. Smear a teeny bit of butter on the outside of both slices and grill about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until outside is a nice golden color and chocolate chips have melted.
Eat immediately.

*for anyone that i have told my dieting woes: you will kindly disregard this post and nary mention it again
