The simplest grub was the best grub for young cowboys on Nebraska Street, so every saddle bag had to be filled with Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwiches.
Grape jelly was best, but strawberry would do. Anybody who tried to use marmalade, whatever the heck that is, was cruisin’ for a bruisin’.
If Steve was joining me on the cattle drive, a HUGE menu change was required. He would only eat Peanut Butter sandwiches. He was a purist. No jelly. End of story.
One time, out of curiosity, I took a bite out of his sandwich. I thought I was going to choke to death. It was drier than a cattle drive. I would’ve been a goner if Mom hadn’t just made a pitcher of grape Kool-Aid. I had to glug a whole glass to wash it down my gullet...
