Sometimes I get an urge for a big spoonful of peanut butter. Yes, right off the spoon. The Brit does not like peanut butter (and was grossed out by my new snack), so I get the whole jar to myself. Despite this, I am not a double-dipper. One spoon, one dip. If I want more, I get another spoon.
Yes. I do a lot of dishes.
Tonight, I had a spoonful of peanutty deliciousness- thank goodness the peanut contamination that had perplexed me a few months ago seems under control, as I was missing the stuff during that nonsense- and then decided, while I had a spoon in my hand, to have a chocolate pudding cup for dessert.
I ate dinner earlier. The peanut butter was not a meal
this time. Peanut butter has many friends aside from jam. Tonight, it made a new one.
There was still some peanut butter on the spoon when I took my first few bites of pudding. This was even more deliciousness! Peanut butter and chocolate pudding. It reminded me of the old commercials for Reese’s Cups.
Wow… the 70’s. *shiver*
I wanted to provide some history on peanut butter, but could not find definitive answers as to its origin. George Washington Carver is often credited. The ancient Incas supposedly ate a paste made of mashed peanuts. John Kellog is also given credit. Dr. Ambrose Straub supposedly invented peanut butter as we know it today to be a protein substitute for patients with bad teeth who otherwise had trouble chewing meats. Being a pseudo-vegetarian, I know that PB is a good protein substitute from the doctors who have tried (and failed) to control my anemia.
NO! I will not eat a steak for crikey’s sake (nor for anyone else’s).
Anyway, I felt compelled to share with you my new snack. What are your favourite peanut combinations?
