First things first: No pregnancy here. I feel like any strange food combo that includes pickles needs this disclaimer. I still don’t know how to interact with children and lack any real motivation to learn how. But for those of you who are pregnant, forget pickles and ice cream. Nut butter and pickles is where it is all at.
Yeah, you are probably making a face at this combination, but I promise the sweet and salty pickles works so well with the creamy peanut butter. Crunchy, creamy, and wonderful. I made my sandwich with my dad’s home-smoked turkey, and I loved the extra smokey flavor with the toppings. G
You know what this sandwich also goes great with? Watching The Newsroom. Great transition, right? I should be a newscaster.
I love Aaron Sorkin’s writing and fast talking shows (Gilmore Girls, anyone?), but I only just started watching The Newsroom yet. And a few days later, I have seen all episodes. And am sad that my cable does not include HBO. And I am 50% considering making a career change to be a journalist. But that’ll change as soon as I watch a Law and Order episode on Netflix. Then I will want to be a lawyer.
So to sum up this post: Make this sandwich and go watch The Newsroom. I promise I do more than eat and watch TV. Those are just my two most important activities.
Good night and good luck.
TURKEY, PICKLE, AND ALMOND BUTTER SANDWICH
