So a few days ago Brett & I were driving to Grand Junction to exchange vehicles with my parents. They had let us drive their car back from the Alamosa reception so we could bring all of our wedding gifts back; my car is just way too small. Of course we packed some snacks for the trip & Brett brought a little container of peanut butter & a banana. One thing he may not have known about me before this little trip was my love for peanut butter....so let me just put this out there, I LOVE PEANUT BUTTER! I know it's full of fat, high in calories, and really not the best for ya, but I can't help it, I love it!
As we were driving, I decided to finish off Brett's peanut butter with my apple. I really do love pb w/ apples, but Brett caught me using an apple slice as a spoon...and I happened to have pb all over my fingers & face (It difficult to get the pb out of the bottom of this container:) Anyways, Brett looked at me and just died laughing. He started calling me his Peanut Butter Princess!! Now, anytime I eat pb I get a little crap from him.
What can I say? I absolutely love peanut butter! I love it plain (yes by the spoonful), on breads, fruits, carrots (a little weird i know), and I absolutely love any dessert with peanut butter in it, and any peanut butter/chocolate combo is great!!! C'mon girls, I know I'm not alone on this one? Why is it so dang good? My absolute FAVORITE peanut butter treats that just happened to be super naughty are:
*Peanut Butter & Marshmallows melted on a tortilla (in the oven or microwave)
* Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies (and so easy)
* My mom's famous peanut butter balls (mmmm....melt in your mouth)
* PB & J's (of course)
* Peanut Butter Cheerio squares
* Peanut Butter on Pancakes:)
Now I know you're all thinking I pig out on peanut butter all day....I really don't eat these yummy treats very often. But I sure enjoy em when I do!!!
