EverySimpsonsEver FXX THe Simpsons 3

This is admittedly a weird post. Why? Because it’s about a local something we’ve been seeing that, despite research and reaching out to the source, we have no idea who is behind it.

The pair seems unlikely—but it really works.

COMPARTES Honey Peanut Butter Sea Salt SQIRL Strawberry Thyme Jam La Brea Bakery 2

Given our recent acquiring of fancy Compartes Peanut Butter and SQIRL Strawberry Jam, we had an idea: we need to use these two ingredients to make a sandwich. It would be a decadent, literally rich treat—but it had to be done. It would be a Los Angeles Grand Slam. Thus, we grabbed some La Brea Bakery bread and have created one of the most Angeleno sandwiches.
