"Dad's Stuff"

Growing up, Sunday evening dinners were pretty casual.  Dad often made bacon and egg sandwiches or his signature recipe, "Dad's Stuff".  In honor of Father's Day, I whipped up a batch of "Dad's Stuff" last weekend.  I have never made it before, and I can't even remember eating it in the last 10 years, but it's a taste I will never forget.  So here's what you need:
Light corn syrup, peanut butter, butter (imitation is just fine), maple syrup (imitation is just fine), and honey
Note- this is not a very healthy recipe!
So you pretty much just throw a little of everything in a bowl.  I don't have amounts, helpful huh?  I just put 2 spoonfuls of peanut butter, 1 spoon of butter, and a squirt of each syrup and the honey. 
You just mix it up and slap it on some bread or eat it straight out of the bowl.  I did both.  At first it didn't have the taste I remembered, so I ended up adding  more honey and maple syrup.  It was just right.
You'll probably never make it, but I just wanted to share one of the foods that reminds me of my Dad and takes me straight back to my childhood.  Mmm mmm- "Dad's Stuff"

I'm Amanda Nichol's Aunt Sissie and I have to thank you for the memory reminders. My great-grandmother had a similar syrup concoction that we ate on biscuits. My Daddy was a preacher and he often made special suppers on Sunday evenings after services.

I remember eating this at your house (maybe middle school age??) and I can still remember how it tastes! I'll have to whip up a small bowl--it would be awesome on french toast or biscuits too! Thanks for the sweet reminder! :)
