Happy National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day

I was wierd as a kid. This is not a secret. Maybe picky is a better word than wierd to describe my likes and dislikes. I’ll leave it up to those of you who knew me and/or grew up with me to determine which is more accurate.

A simple, classic meal.

A simple, classic meal.

I didn’t like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as a kid because they got too smushy for me. Instead I liked peanut butter and honey. Really, the foundation of my “liking” is the peanut butter itself, which must be smooth. In fact, I’ve been known to have a spoonful of peanut butter for a meal. My favorite peanut butter combination is with chocolate; the second is honey.

Did you know that it takes about 540 peanuts to make a 12-ounce jar of peanut butter? Check out this blog from The Huffington Post about the history of peanut butter and interesting peanut butter facts.
