Anchovy-stuffed Olives

As long as I’m blogging about silly stuff — Anchovy-Stuffed Olives are yum!

I cannot begin to tell you how much I love these. So much I put ’em on my Amazon Wishlist.

Well literally nothing about this post is relevant anymore. Every link broke, I decided I like garlic-stuffed olives better… It’s interesting though, that I became aware of my olives/anchovies/capers savory sort of taste enjoyment right about this time. I know known that the savory flavor profile is sometimes called Umami. Between this and sour beer, I’ve got that flavor profile covered.

Peanut Butter and Pickle Sandwiches

From the kitchen of: Paul Mineart, Sr.

  • Bread
  • Crunchy Peanut Butter
  • Sweet Pickle Chips (NOT Bread and Butter Pickles)

Directions: pretty obvious; just make a peanut butter sandwich and put a layer of pickle chips in there.
The important thing is to get the right pickles, and they’re hard to find anymore. Bread and Butter pickles (the kind with the little yellow floaty things) don’t taste right. You need real sweet pickles, and they usually only make them in midget size anymore, not as chips. I like to toast the bread lightly, but it’s not necessary. The cool thing is that the pickles keep the peanut butter from sticking to the roof of your mouth, so you can load up on peanut butter if you want.
My dad used to make this for us when we were little kids. I know it sounds strange, but give it a try; it’s great. One of my all-time favorite comfort foods, second only to apple sauce and cottage cheese mixed together.
