Dandy PB&J sandwich

We had a board meeting last night and I was late getting home. ‘Fast food’ isn’t so fast on the late shift, so I took my chances with dinner at home. I whipped up a peanut butter and jelly, out of desperation comes inspiration sometimes. It was delicious. What really was a treat was that I used dandelion jelly.  That’s right, that dandelion – the yellow flowered yard weed. I had bought the dandelion jelly this week at Aunt T’s Sweets and Eats in Centerville, Tennessee (142 N Central Ave.) Great stuff! That is the kind of unique experience that can be had only with local food. Try it out.
