A JOURNEY IN RUNNING, LIVING, LAUGHING AND LOVING

Happy National Peanut Butter Day!

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

For those of you that didn't get the memo, today is the best day of the year. No, it's not a holiday (not a real one, anyway). It is not the start of summer. It is not the birthday of someone you love (well, it might be) or an anniversary (again, it might be). 

Today is National Peanut Butter Day. 

Anyone who knows me well can attest to the fact that I like peanut butter. A lot. A. LOT. 

Peanut butter is easily my favorite condiment. "Condiment?" you may be thinking. "Peanut butter is not a condiment." 

FALSE! Peanut butter is THE condiment! On bagels, cookies, toast, animal crackers, brownies, graham crackers, pita chips, ice cream sandwiches, pieces of chocolate, plain bread, Cheez-its, celery, apples, Thai noodles, bananas, muffins, Oreos, pretzels, oatmeal, smores, or your finger, peanut butter takes the cake. OH! And cake! So great in cake! 


My favorite type of peanut butter is Skippy Natural. It is DELICIOUS. It's more natural than other peanut butters but without the annoyance of stirring like many of the natural ones make you do. As I type this, I am on my last jar. Yes, I keep a back up jar of peanut butter. You do weird stuff too. Don't judge me. 

Two years ago, I gave up peanut butter for lent. Some people would think this was a minor sacrifice. NOT FOR ME! It was a long 40 days. I celebrated the end of it by eating an entire bag of peanut butter M&M eggs on Easter Sunday. By myself. On my grandfather's couch in Florida. It was glorious. 

So, with the hours slipping away, make sure you celebrate National Peanut Butter Day with something delicious. I have a box of Tagalong Girl Scout cookies and the jar of peanut butter staring me in the face. :)
