Who doesn’t love a peanut butter sandwich? I know I do! Most of us boomers grew up eating a lot of them as it was a go to staple in our simpler world. I bet many of you over fifty women still love peanut butter sandwiches, but if you’re like me, we don’t eat them because of the bread. So I decided to ditch the bread and use a banana in its place.
