Peanut, Peanut Butter and Jelly – Cooking with Anna

“You’re the peanut butter to my jelly. You’re the cream to my coffee. You’re the bacon to my eggs. You are the flip to my flop.” Everyone needs someone in their lives that truly is the peanut butter to their jelly. We all need cheerleaders in our lives that stand by our sides, hold our hands, and help push us towards our goals.

My sweet husband is my peanut butter. He holds my hand and walks with me when I’m feeling alone on this road to better health. He stands beside me in my decision to totally change my lifestyle. He pushes me to not give up on my goals and continues to praise my victories and carry me through my failures. I’m one lucky girl.

Who is your peanut butter, your bacon, your cream? It could be a spouse, a co-worker, a family member, or a best friend. Look for someone to help you succeed. It is important to have someone in your corner.

It is so refreshing to hear from you all, and I’ve so enjoyed getting to read about your stories. If you would like to reach out to me about your journey, I would love to hear from you.

Having a community of support calls for a dish that is perfect for a summer picnic get-together. The recipe this week would be the perfect addition to any party and it is a great and healthy dish. Cobb Egg Salad is delicious, cool, and refreshing. Even your friends that don’t like eggs will fall in love with this dish. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.
