A Special Sandwich

“My mom was famous in my house for her peanut butter and butter 'sammitches.' My [dear son], 4 years old at the time, insisted that I call his 'Mema' and get her recipe for peanut butter and butter sammitches. Apparently I didn't have the same knack as my mom! I called, and she giggled at the request and shared her secret—she put butter on both pieces of bread and then 'floated' the peanut butter in between. She also advised that it was crucial that they be cut into exact quarters.

“Now, my mom was self-taught and very accomplished in the kitchen. Everything she cooked was wonderful, from piecrust to bread to Beef Wellington. But I will never, ever forget my son's quest to get his Mema's recipe for peanut butter and butter sammitches.”
