Peanut Butter Banana Sandwich

A few weekends ago, I finally made it to the Barataria Preserve of John Lafitte National Historical Park. You thought now that I live in Louisiana that you won't get any great outdoors posts, but let me tell you about the swamps down here. Bayou also means "sleeping waters," and out here in the bayou live hundreds and thousands of plants and creatures that make Louisiana swamps distinctly lush and green. The draping Spanish moss, the crooked cypresses, and the murky waters give the bayou a sense of mystique. It draws you, chills you, and hypnotizes you.

After a long walk in high humidity, you definitely need to replenish with a snack. I packed a double decker peanut butter banana sandwich and green grapes, which was perfect to refuel for a second wind. Peanut butter banana sandwiches are one of my favorites. It's sweet, gooey, and will definitely have you smacking your lips. Be sure you have enough water with you!
