My husband just had me do something disgusting ...

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Shawn couldn't sleep all night, and he's really tired. So he asked me to make him a sandwich just now. Okay, no problem. "What kind?"
"Peanut butter, banana, and jelly."
I figured he was tired and thus a little mixed up. "You mean peanut butter and banana?"
"No, peanut butter, banana, and jelly."
Blech. How disgusting. But, that's what he wants, so ... A bit later he toodles into the kitchen while I am composing the abomination and says, "and butter."
"What???"
"Butter."
"Peanut butter, banana, jelly, and butter," I say. Just to clarify matters. Because at this point, I am thinking he's slipped off the edge of sanity and just needs a gentle nudge back into The Land of Normal.
"Yes. How do you think Elvis ate his peanut butter sandwiches?" Okay, that came way out of left field. How is what Elvis ate even relevant to this conversation? However, something in me won't let it go, so I say, "Well, actually, Elvis ate grilled peanut butter and banana sandwiches, but they didn't have jelly in them."
He mumbles something about seeing a recipe with jelly in it, and one with honey in it too, but that's too sticky ... or something. I dunno. So, as he moseys on out of the kitchen, still murmuring under his breath, I shrug and put butter on one of the bread slices. I then put the two slices together; assembled, it looks like something a brave kid might eat on a triple dog dare. Gads.
Ever the dutiful wife, though, I take it to him in the bedroom. He takes one look at it and says, "I asked you to grill it." (You can review the conversation yourself. At no point did he ask me to grill it. He is always doing that to me.)
Ladies and gentlemen, I did the only thing at that point that could have made that sandwich more revolting: I grilled it. I'm not proud of myself.

Did he actually end up eating it?

My cousin always put butter on her peanut butter & jelly sandwiches.

I do think a plain peanut butter and banana (maybe with a little honey) would be good grilled though.

I guess I don't see it being all that bad. Now if it was peanut butter, vegemite, and jelly, I might be wondering...

Yes. Yes, he did.

Maybe you're not getting the full effect. Close your eyes and imagine: white bread with peanut butter AND jelly (cherry jam, actually) AND banana slices AND butter on the inside, GRILLED, which of course means more butter on the outside.

He must have a cast-iron stomach. I can think of something worse - my grandfather used to eat peanut butter and sardine sandwiches.
I eat peanut butter and horseradish on crackers - maybe your husband would like that.

Sounds tasty enough, but I don't think I'd be able to eat more than one bite of it!

Eww ... peanut butter and sardines. Blech.

The weird thing is that usually Shawn is not a "sweet stuff" person. Like, to him, a peanut butter sandwich is not food because peanut butter is sweet. I'm kind of wondering if maybe he was fully awake when he asked me for the sandwich. I mean, he seemed awake ... I'll have to ask him when he gets up.

Yeah, the first bite might not be bad, but even though I love anything sweet and fatty I think I'd be gagging by bite #2. And eating the entire sandwich? Um, ew.

At that point, I'd have chucked that nasty sandwich at him!

Me too. Or at the very least told him to grill his own sandwich!

Actually that sounds pretty good to me. And I also think one should have butter on everything. I love butter on banana bread, lemon loaf, well actually pretty much anything. I ordered a BLT in the restaurant last week and they brought it without butter - ugh!

I wouldn't have jelly with that kind of sandwich, but it's the butter that kills my appetite the most. Mmmmmmmm... cold, yellow, fat spread onto bread with peanut butter? Never! (unless it's garlic bread. Then I'm okay. )

LOL my husband hates when I put butter on his peanut butter sandwiches.
So now, if he wants a sandwich, well, he just has to make it himself.

I'd eat that too. Not disgusting. Just an odd combo. I think avacados are disgusting, but that's me.

If the Mrs. posted here, she'd be telling you all about my grilled cheese and peanut butter sandwiches.

I would have cracked it when he asked me to make the sandwich!!!
