Gin Blanco's (Jennifer Estep) Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich (From Spider's Bite)

 Ever since I read Spider's Bite where Gin talks about making this Peanut Butter, pumpkin & Banana sandwich, I have been dying to make it (and eat it of course). Nathasha and I were going to get together and make it, but we both decided it would be much more fun to make with my little experimenter Jake.  He loves to experiment in the kitchen -- and than make me stomach whatever he has made (Trust me this has been pretty nasty at times) so I figured this would be right up his alley.  Also had to make it today since for the next 10 days I have to go without wheat and there was no way in hell that I was going to make it  -- and not eat it.

Here are some pics and the recipe follows. Oh yeah, and if you haven't read the book -- trust me go buy it now, you will not regret it -- and you will totally understand why I had to make this too.

 No you cannot make me try that nasty looking thing!

 O.K. I tasted it, I am soo not going to swallow it -- pumpkin icky!!

Oh Yeah, thanks to Natasha for reminding me -- It tasted AWESOME !!!!!!! You gotta make it

Peanut But­ter and Banana Sandwich

1/2 cup peanut but­ter
1/2 cup pump­kin
1 banana, sliced
2 slices of your favorite bread

Mix the peanut but­ter and pump­kin together to form a creamy spread (there will be enough spread for more than one sand­wich). Put the spread on one slice of your favorite bread. Top with the banana slices. Driz­zle the banana slices with honey and sprin­kle with cin­na­mon, if you wish. Top with the remain­ing piece of bread and enjoy your sand­wich with a glass of cold milk.

  1. I like all of those things separately. DID you like it?

  2. It was so yummy Stacy -- you have to make it. I was complaining to Jennifer that I wanted more but cannot eat wheat for the next week and she suggested that it is really good as a dip for veggies and some fruits - haven't tried that yet, but it sounds fantastic!
