Happy Birthday Mom

Today is my Mom's birthday. Mom is a breast cancer survivor. She got the news and, in her quiet, strong way, went through treatment, listened to her doctors and beat this insidious disease.

My renewed high school friend, Vera, is aggressively working to triumph over this disease that was in her body. She's not quiet about it because knows that knowledge is power.

To these two incredibly strong women in my life, thank you!

In honor of Mom, here is her Peanut Butter and Potato Chip Sandwich that I loved so much as a kid.

Peanut Butter and Potato Chip Sandwich

Serves 1

2 slices of your favorite bread- toasted
Peanut Butter- I prefer chunky
a handful of potato chips- Wise brand is good because they have darker chips.

Smear peanut butter on the top side of both slices of bread.

Put the potato chips on one of the bread slices. Press the chips slightly into the peanut butter.

Top with the other smeared slice of bread.

Lightly press together.

Cutting the sandwich in half is optional.

Crunch and enjoy.

  1. I, to this day, put potato chips on all my sandwiches, except peanut butter! I remember doing it as a child. My older son does the same thing now. It's funny.

    Congratulations to your mom on beating breast cancer. My thoughts go out to your friend.
