s'mores

One of our staff members now lives in and works out of her apartment in New York City. She is fond of sharing her unique restaurant finds while exploring the streets of New York. Last week she told me about Peanut Butter and Co., which serves only nut butter and fruit spread sandwiches — the ultimate PB & Js. Here is their feature sandwich for this week — September 8-14: White Chocolate Wonderful & Blueberry Preserves. Oh, my — I want one — now!!

On Monday, someone suggested that we build a bonfire and have s’mores during our weekly staff meeting — all quite unlikely as we work in an office building surrounded by a parking lot with no fire pits in sight. Being the oldest on staff and therefore officially “Mother,” I was determined to find a way to have s’mores around the conference table if not by a crackling fire. Purchasing the graham crackers was a no-brainer and marshmallow Fluff easily substituted for the real thing. But what to do about the chocolate bars? As I wandered down the PB & J aisle at the grocery store, I happened to notice a new product – Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams — oh, yes!!! A sinfully delicious combination of peanut butter and very good chocolate. New York City comes to Topeka, Kan.!

Well, as you can imagine the conference room s’mores were a real hit! And when I go to New York City to visit my granddaughter, I plan to take her out for a gourmet PB & J.

This spread is even better than Nutella... if you can imagine that.
