Have you ever discovered something so obvious that you wonder, why didn’t I see that before? That’s the way I felt when I realized what I’d been missing all these years by not knowing how good a blueberry nut butter sandwich is. It was like a V8 moment. I wanted to slap my forehead and say, “What a dummy, I could have been enjoying a blueberry nut butter sandwich all these years.”
Yesterday I wanted a nut butter sandwich but without the jam or jelly, and then the idea came to me, why not try it with blueberries? I’d been eating peanut butter with bananas since I was a little girl, why hadn’t I tried it with berries? I spread almond butter on a piece of whole wheat bread, topped it with fresh blueberries and took a bite. What a surprise! Why would anyone ever come up with the idea of making jam to put on toast when this fresh fruit tastes so fresh and juicy?
You might be thinking, why put up a post for something so simple, I mean…, blueberry nut butter sandwich? Really?
If I didn’t write this post today you could go years, like me, without ever having it cross your mind to make a blueberry nut butter sandwich. That would be sad, and I would feel guilty for not having shared my find with you, even though you might think it is trite. But if you try it, I know you’ll agree with me that this sandwich is worth the post.
Sometimes the most delicious and memorable foods are the simplest. And sometimes they are just to obvious to even be seen, but if you let yourself relax and let your eyes gaze casually over the foods in the fridge, you might just have a V8 moment.
