Triple Your Everything

29 Jan


Except nipples. Stick with two. If you have three, that’s all well and okay, but I’d only pierce the principle two.

Just to clear up any confusion I only have two nipples. And piercings.

So I’ve been pretty busy. My improv team has been booking more gigs outside of our weekly performance.

Auditions are back up and running.

I’m harloting around to casting director workshops like crazy in the name of ye olde pilot season.

Still reading and writing like a maniac for Hello Giggles.

AND most importantly Alice and I are planning our next pie party and boy is the theme of it this time a doozy. Let’s just say that my inner goth cook is hard at work.

So I’m busy. Ergo I am presenting you with a simple sandwich. I have a lot of random thoughts about/inspired by this recipe:

I’m not sure if it is an amazing recipe so much as fun. Maybe not amazing but WORTH IT.

I think everything is better with butter.

There are people who like grape jelly and people who like strawberry.
Of course I prefer blackberry or raspberry because I am persnickety. But will always take grape over strawberry. I think what you are raised with will always be the preference.

I was skeptical as to whether a slice of toast would do much for a sandwich, but then remembered how Bill Cosby used to put potato chips in his sandwiches, so I thought maybe crunch would be good.

It was. But I wanted to double the creamy to play against the crunch. So I did. Double the amount of PB and J initially called for. I adore the looks of this sandwich. It is so…architectural.

PBJ Triple from the allrecipes app
1 piece of bread toasted and cooled
2 slices untoasted bread
4 Tbsp. Peanut butter
4 Tbsp jam
Spread jam on one side of untoasted bread. Spread pb on either side of toasted. Make a sandwich. I hope you are capable of figuring it out.

    Bah ha ha ha ha ha! I am glad you clarified the piercings, however… I am now curious if your 2 piercings are on your nipples! LMFAO! And if so, did it hurt? I always oddly wanted to get a nipple pierced! ah ha!

      Hehe, the answers to your questions are yes and yes-although it did not hurt as bad as my navel piercing. So if you want to I say do it! Although I’d say if you get one done, get both. I think I’d feel oddly unbalanced if I only pierced one.

    Omg you are a riot. I almost couldn’t read the whole post after hearing about your third nipple…or lack of a third nipple…I can’t remember anymore. As for this sandwich, I might have to add another piece of bread…and another layer of Peanut Butter. We’ll call it the Grand Slam.

      Ha, I do NOT have a third one. As for the Grand Slam-I’m in!

    I have no piercings. I felt you should know. Only seems fair. GREG

      Thank you Greg. I’m glad to know. This is a safe space.

    Here’s what happens when I don’t visit in awhile…I miss priceless conversations about 3rd nipples! Meanwhile, I’m learning about animal totems, and the opossum has 13 nipples (representing the sun that centers the zodiac). A little not-so-random info to titillate you ;).

      Whoaaa 13?! What an odd odd number. Consider me tittled.
