I invented a sandwich! Please, please, save your applause for after I reveal my brilliant creation. Today's Vegan MoFo prompt is "best sandwich ever," so here is my gift to you.
You are welcome.
I found myself with nothing to eat but a couple of slices of bread, a little bit of peanut butter, and some strawberry jelly. What was I to do? I had to get creative and make the best of what I had. I thought about it for a while, and then suddenly out of nowhere an idea popped into my head - make a sandwich with the peanut butter and the jelly! Here's how to assemble my original invention:
Start with two slices of bread.
Spread peanut butter all over one of the slices. If your bread is very "holey" you may want to spread peanut butter over both slices to keep the other filling (next step) from escaping through the holes.
Now spread your choice of jelly or jam over the other slice of bread, or straight over the peanut butter if you want your fillings to really mingle like mine.
Are you following this? I know it's a little complex, but the result is phenomenal, if I may say so myself. Now flip one slice of bread over the other.
And you're done! Isn't it a fantastic idea? It's a peanut butter and jelly sandwich! Who knew those two ingredients would be so delicious together! I thought I'd call it a PB&J (TM) sandwich for short, which is cute and totally me. Thank you, thank you, yes, I know I am a creative genius. Please, stop! You're making me blush! Anyone could have thought of it, really. Although it WAS all me.
Please, do leave me all kinds of comments praising my ingenuity and telling me what a unique sandwich this is. And how amazing I am for creating it. Flattery fuels my genius, so we both win. Well, I must retreat to my "mind palace" now so I can come up with new ideas with which to knock your socks off.
Oh, the silliness!
This blog post is dedicated to all of you who have ever had your creative ideas plagiarized by some assbutt blogger who shamelessly claimed to be the actual mastermind behind your culinary creations. It's hard to keep putting our original work out there when someone takes something that we conceived and are proud of, and they claim it as their own invention. I'm not talking about a simple recipe for a burrito or a chocolate cake because most of those are bound to have similar ingredients, I am talking about those times when what is plagiarized is something personal.
To those of you who do go around the interwebs stealing people's ideas - we know what you're doing! Everyone knows what you're doing! Yes, you there, in the back! I can see you taking notes and trying to steal my PB&J sandwich idea! Go away!
For those of you who don't go around snatching people's ideas, here's a picture of my computer buddy (not my pup, I was just puppy-sitting) resting his little chin on my desk. I thought he looked a bit uncomfortable so I gave him a tiny chin-pillow. He seemed to approve.
