Peanut Butter & Jelly Puppy Chow

It’s August! Where did summer go? I haven’t even finished my summer classes yet and the stores are already crawling with back to school supplies… Don’t get me wrong, I actually love buying supplies (I know… nerd alert). With school right around the corner I was inspired by the thought. What is everyones go to lunch? A peanut butter and jelly sandwich, of course! Why not take the flavors that make an amazing sandwich and make them into an amazing snack instead!

Eating a piece of each at the same time is like biting into a dripping peanut butter and jelly sandwich… without the jelly dripping all over your hands and getting them all sticky ๐Ÿ™‚ There’s nothing that drives me more nuts than being sticky. No matter how many times I wash my hands they always seem to remain sticky. The only way to resolve it is to shower.

It’s going to be sad saying goodbye to another summer. I’m excited for autumn, it’s my absolute favorite season. The changing of the color of the leaves, the smells, and the cool air. Autumn puts me in the best mood. I love the candles, the flavors, the soaps and hand creams and the clothing. Everything about autumn makes me smile. So here’s to another school year!
