Peanut Butter and…

Back when I was a kid, I enjoyed peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. The real kind – none of this prepackaged stuff. But since then, I’ve found that a peanut butter sandwich by itself is pretty darned good… not to mention Fluffernutters.

I’ve also learned that people are pretty persnickety when approaching peanut butter perfection. I prefer plain, but some prefer peanut butter with a chocolate spread, and some prefer it with Nutella. What do you like? Remember: the odder, the better. -pm

I love peanut butter. It is one of my favorite foods. I generally eat it plain, right out of the jar with a spoon.

peanut butter, i eat at least 1/4 cup a day. nutella is huge in europe but i cant get over that preservative taste. its all about super chunky natural peanut butter. arrowhead mills is the best, but i can rarely afford it.

Did you guys know they're making plastic wrapped peanut butter slices now? Like Kraft cheese singles, I think.

I can't eat too much peanut butter. Peanuts are BEANS, you know. I can't stand myself after eating peanut butter, either. Whew!! I can only imagine adding taco sauce to the mix. Good Lord.

Its all about the crunchy peanut butter on bread. About a half inch of peanut butter on a slice, and then put another slice on top, and then put another slab of PB on. and then another slice of bread. If you can open your mouth after eating that, I commend you. But it is still all the peanut buttery goodness.

My friends and I just saw Mr. Deeds a few days back- great movie!!!! So we had to try to make a peanut butter and oreo pizza. Granted in the movie it was oreos and french fries, and then peanut butter and gumballs, but we had to alter it- so we ordered the pizza, and when it came we spread the peanut butter on it like it was a sammich. Then we put one oreo on each piece. The peanut butter is heated by the pizza, and sticks to the roof of your mouth- I tell you you've never eaten until you've tried this pizza- It is great

Ack! My stomach is turning. How did you spread peanut butter onto slippery tomato sauce? In short, I must refuse to believe you (only because doing so quiets my panicked stomach again).

That's stale nutella. It tends to get dusty and stale on the shelves here in the US at traditional grocers. I've seen it on shelves and can tell by the label that it's a number of years old. You've got to go to a so-called foreign grocery to get it, where the foreigners buy it and keep the fresh stock moving. When the Nutella's fresh, life just doesn't get any better.

I also like peanut butter and jelly on toast warmed in the oven. Not weird, but good.

Sliced bread slightly buttered on the outside and filled with peanut butter and banana slices then fried 'til the sandwich is slightly crisp and golden. They say this made Elvis fat - 'twas one of his faves (and mine too)!
