Date Morning

What to do when you must go to your most favorite restaurant for a meeting but its the end of the month and your budget is blown until November?
Cook up your second favorite meal in the whole wide world!  Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana sandwich!  Nothing better...except of course substituting Trader Joe's Sunflower Seed Butter!  Mmmm!

Last night I had a Solemates Social at Joel's, my favorite sushi place!  And I love veggie sushi!  And veggie tempura! And miso! And many many other treats at Joel's.  Of course I planned the social at Joel's purposely as an excuse to go and enjoy!  But when the date finally rolled around, my budget was blown for the month.  I had to eat something delish for dinner to keep me from temptation. 

Enter the Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich!

2 slices of bread
1/2 banana, sliced length wise
2 tbsp nut butter

Spread nut butter on one slice of bread and place banana on other slice.  Place slices on nonstick grill pan (I don't use any butter on the outside of the sandwich!)  After bread slices are toasty and brown smoosh the sandwich together and slice.  Enjoy!

P.S. there really is no reason to ever eat a cold PB&B ever again!

Mr. Kummerow and I enjoyed date night morning today!  The alarm went off at 5am and we were out of bed and on our way to our favorite bagel place: NY Bagel! 

One pumpernickel toasted with peanut butter, one marble rye toasted with peanut butter and two cups of coffee and we were on our way home with the goods!

Movie choice: Fantastic Mr. Fox
Our goods were spread out and shared.
We only made it half way through the movie...it was too scary for me.  So then we switched over to my new favorite: Cake Boss.  Low and behold the episode we chose was an hour-long special in Charlotte, NC- my backyard!  They made a life size replica race car out of cake! 

Best date night morning ever!
