Scoop a couple of spoonfuls of peanut butter and about the same amount of honey into a small mug or bowl.
If you’re a kid, mix them together. If you’re an adult, pretend you’re a kid and mix them together.
Take a thick piece of homemade bread, break it up into bite-size bits and put it in a bowl.
Pour milk over the bread. (Don’t use store-bought bread. It just doesn’t work.)
Use your spoon to scoop up a tiny bit of the PB & honey mixture, then scoop up a bit of bread and some milk.
And that’s how you eat bread and milk.
My father would often garnish the whole thing with a slice of cold cheese.
My favorite though, which I also learned from him, was grabbing a handful of green onions or chives straight out of the garden, and dipping the cut ends in salt and eating them raw.
It’s actually a delicious combination with the sweetness of the bread and milk.
And yes, after putting together pictures of a rather simple meal in as pretty a way as I could… I went outside, took a few minutes to myself to listen to the rain, and ate my bread and milk. 🙂
