Food truly brings people together.  Today, let me share two wonderful meals that we enjoyed as children.  Now you can make these sumptuous treasures for your own kids.

Recipe #1: Onions with Mustard

Back when we were 12, I know Debbie was thrilled when my mom insisted on sharing this tasty and original snack with her.  I know she was so glad she tried it.

Ingredients
1 raw yellow onion
Dijon mustard

Cut the raw onion into thin wedges.  Dip the onions in the dijon mustard as if they were chips and dip.

Recipe #2: Peanut Butter on a Plate

The perfect afternoon treat.

Ingredients
Peanut butter

Put a very large glob of peanut butter on a plate.  Grab two forks and dig in family-style with a friend.  Be prepared for a parent to yell at you later for embarrassing them by serving our guest peanut butter on a plate.

    The onion and mustard thing was not original with me so I can’t take credit for that. There was a bar/diner in Oakbrook Illinois that used to serve that as an hors d’oeurvre a long time ago. It was delightful!
