Peanut Butter and Jelly Time (A Giveaway)

I have to admit that when I was a child I didn't ever get peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in my lunch.

And even though I usually got some kind of Cuban-food-of-awesomeness-leftover in my Barbie lunchbox, I confess that I was jealous of my little American counterparts who found those crustless sweet and salty offerings in their brown bags day after day. 

As I got older, I didn't give peanut butter and jelly much thought, until I had a peanut butter and guava jelly sandwich. (ohyesIdid.)

It was a beautiful melding of the two cultures that have made me the person that I am today.

Are you wondering why am I waxing nostalgic over peanut butter?
