I think peanut butter sandwiches are one my favorite, if not favorite, sandwiches. I’ve posted a couple time about peanut butter sandwiches. I was looking through our cabinets and saw a container of hot cocoa powder.

Hot Cocoa Powder

Hmm, the gears started turning. I started with raisin bread.

Raisin Bread

I slightly toasted the bread. On one side, I spread peanut butter. On the other side, I spread a thin layer of margarine, then sprinkled cocoa powder over the margarine. I joined the two pieces and let the sandwich sit for a few minutes to let the cocoa powder melt into the margarine and peanut butter.

I ate the sandwich with some fresh strawberries and a banana. Yum. It was a Reese’s moment (maybe even a Nutella moment too). 🙂

Kimbap or Gimbap

This is a continuation of yesterday’s post.

I always thought the rice rolled in dried seaweed and stuffed with fresh and pickled vegetables and shredded meat, sold at the Korean market was Korean-style makizushi. In looking for information about gim yesterday, I found out that the rolls of rice is not Korean-style makizushi, but a dish in its own right. My bad. The Korean name is kimbap or gimbap.

Here’s the Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gimbap

I bought a roll of kimbap for lunch yesterday from the Korean market.

Roll of Kimbap

This kimbap had dried seaweed, cooked rice, pickled radish, spinach, and meat.

This is what the kimbap looked like after I took it out of the container.


Kind of looks like a mosaic or stained glass, don’t you think?

I got a complete meal in a roll, starch, protein, and vegetables. I think because the kim is roasted in oil, there was a little heavier feel to it than the Japanese nori. I think both kimbap, made with kim, and makizushi, made with nori, are very good. I have no favorite (actually, I do have a favorite, it’s nigiri sushi, but that’s a whole different subject).
