Peanut Butter and Jelly in Space

I love these little 'Day In The Lives of...' that NASA gives us. Just so we can get a taste of what it's like for the ISS dwellers!
And by-the-way did you know that the International Space Station has been continually occupied, by over 100 astronauts, since November 2, 2000? Which means we are working toward 17 years. And seriously, that is quite a long time

From: NASA Johnson
Astronauts on the International Space Station eat the same kinds of food as people on Earth—they just prepare them differently. Expedition 50 commander Shane Kimbrough demonstrates on-orbit preparation of one of Earth’s most popular foods: the humble peanut butter and jelly sandwich. But without bread. And without being a juggler.

Wow, even something as simple as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is so complicated to make there! You have to be careful with everything that you touch and make sure they don't end up floating in disarray. Cool video!

You are exactly right. If anything gets way from them, even a drop of jelly, that could end up messing up some instrument or who knows what? Very complicated!
