PB&J pies

In Chicago, Lindsey and I lunched at an organic, vegetarian cafe called Handlebar where we drank Hibiscus & Mint iced tea and ate fresh salads –  I had the “Everything Green” (below) with extra tofu. The night before we had indulged in ‘bacon fat popcorn’ and ‘pulled pork pizza’ at Revolution so we were glad to have a lighter meal…

We felt virtuous after our very green meals …. then we saw the peanut butter and jelly fried pies on the specials menu. —–>

We asked our waiter about them and his whole face lit up, ‘Oh my goodness…. Those are DELECTABLE’. So much for our attempt to keep things light… !

Words can’t really describe our reaction when we took a bite… The deliciousness was beyond compare!!! Warmed peanut butter and strawberry jam, hot buttery shortcrust pastry and a sticky sugary glaze over the top…. I’ll never forget them 🙂

    The salad and tofu does look so healthy and delicious, but who in their right mind could resist the lure of peanut butter and jelly PIES?! That is too awesome! Argh.. it’s like torture reading your description of eating it and looking at the photos. I wanna taste it too TT
