I was watching Paula Deen, Queen of fattening food, on FoodTV the other day while I was at the gym. I have this sickening habit of watching FoodTV while I'm on the elliptical or the treadmill. Its sick I know, but I still do it. Mainly because I do not have cable at home, and thus must fill the craving for watching my shows. My dad canceled the channel at home in Toronto and my sister was so upset. He only watches CNN and movies. Oh yeah, and Reba. So she finally reinstated it this weekend when I visited! (Poor dad, she canceled movies on him, but he says he will be more productive as a result.) I got my fill, and my mom was so cute, saying 'Oh, it's nice to see our old friends'. Disclaimer: we do not stalk people on FoodTV.
Back to Queen Fatty, and yes one of her comfort foods was PBnB sandwiches. FRIED IN BUTTER, need I say more. I made a less fatty version. Only a little butter. It certainly filled the afternoon craving for something sweet with my tea.
Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwiches
2 slices of bread, 1 tbsp peanut butter, 1/2 large banana sliced, 1 tbsp honey, 1 tsp butter
1. Place the butter on a hot griddle, and swirl it around.
2. Spread peanut butter on one piece of the bread.
3. Toast the bread slices on the griddle, put the banana slices on top of the peanut butter.
4. Drizzle honey on top of the banana and close the sandwich. Cut it in half.
