I'm Back!! With One of My Dad's Concoctions!

It has been awhile since I've been on blogger. I am off for the summer and I figured it was time I came back. Working at an elementary school sure helps me get through each day. I only told a few of the kids what had happened to my parents. We are doing okay, just trying to get through one day at a time. My parents were the best at creating a strong close family, we think about them everyday. I miss them so much it really hurts. I know that there are no words that can even come close to express how we feel, and I want to thank all of you for your prayers and support.
I am back with a new computer and an internet service that now should make things a lot easier.
This one is for my dad...I would like to come back with one of my dad's favorite breakfast sandwich...peanut butter and pickles on toasted bread.

 Really...don't knock it until you try it! The last time I was with my dad he would fix himself this and had it for breakfast. When I was a kid we would eat this as a sandwich for lunch, but seeing my dad make this reminded me of it again, so I have been having it for breakfast too.

I even used the plates that we had when I was a kid, my mom gave the dishes to me a few years ago. Ahhh brings back such good memories. I love vintage dishes and have been collecting many mid century dishes made in the USA. I will be sure to share my finds some day.

Coming back to the sandwich...I would bring this to school where my morning job is monitoring breakfast in the cafeteria. They would always check out what I would bring in to eat for my breakfast. They would wrinkle their noses at this. Hey I thinks it's better than when they put chocolate milk on their Frosted Flakes!

The only difference from my dad's sandwich is he used his homemade bread and made his own peanut butter. I did a post a long time ago on his peanut butter. He knew how to make it right!
