"I am going to make a peanut butter sandwich."

Allow me to introduce you to precocious epicurian prodigy Baby Kate. In this blast from the past, little Kate (here at the promising age of four, in a nautically-themed outfit) will give you step-by-step instructions on how to make that famous culinary item beloved by children everywhere, the peanut butter and honey sandwich.

(All italicized text is a direct quote from Baby Kate's gastronomical premiere in 1988, available on home video. Please try to ignore 80s kitchen decor.)

"You get some bread and put some honey on it..."

"Then you get some peanut butter and put it on the other side. Then you smooth the peanut butter. I am just getting all the peanut butter off so I can get some more..."

"Then you put it on..."

"...and eat it! Mmmmm...I sure do know how to make 'em!"

I believe that in this video I go on the feed the sandwich to the cat.

Thanks to mom for digging out the old camcorder and capturing these stills! Also, my apologies for my recent absenteeism - next life goal: to get responsible living to coincide with responsible blogging. My heartfelt gratitude goes out to all of you who asked after me this week - thank you for making this slice of pie feel special!

More updates very soon. 'Til then,
- (Grownup?) Kate

Oh how I love Baby Kate! Although I didn't get to meet Baby Kate, I did get to meet Pre-Pubescent Kate, which was just as awesome. Love you!

That's my girl! I know your readers will think you as cute as I did/do and we all needed to be reminded how good the simple things in life are...I mean, peanut butter and honey, everyone needs to know how to make! Keep on cooking/writing. You made me smile today.:)
