Peanut Butter & Jelly

The best PB & J is made with homemade whole wheat bread, homemade peanut butter, and homemade plum jam.  It comes with apple slices, carrot sticks, and a glass of chilled farm fresh milk.

And to make it even better?  Add an episode of Mr. Ed on Hulu.

Every Thursday, lunch is just such a party.  Mom and Dad are gone for the day, in Tyler for Mom's weekly Vitamin C infusion, and we sit around the living room with our full plates, smiling over the funny 50's TV show, complete with old fashioned dresses, comical characters, and a talking horse.

Need I say it is one of our favorite days of the week?

That sounds like a most perfect lunch time ritual! I might have to try and recreate it for myself! Mmm, I do love plum jam, I feel so Anne of Green Gabels making it, though I'm not entirely sure as to's mentioned in there somewhere, right? ;-)

I love this. Fairlight and I often eat milk and cookies after dinner while watching and episode of The Waltons. :)

I like Mr. Ed! ;) I didn't know it was on Hulu! I shall have to loot it up. I like watching The Dick van Dyke Show on Hulu.

You have such a way with words. This is how I want to spent my noon time meal now. Unfortunately I have to work today. Maybe for dinner :)
I forgot how yummy homemade peanut butter is! Now that you've mentioned it I think I will go make some.
