Peanut Butter Princess

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!!!

ok this is a total fat girl tendency thing so hold on to your love handles for THIS ONE.. I can't keep an open bag of chocolate chips in my house. I have to ONLY open them right before I use it, and I have to use the WHOLE thing cause one of my favorite chubby chick things to do is get a spoonful of peanut butter and then DIP IT IN CHOCOLATE CHIPS so all the chocolate sticks...SO YUM!!!! Right after we got married rich came in the kitchen and saw me eating that and dang near passed out.. he said "Kellie that's just sick" too bad he married a girl who likes to have candy in her pockets!!!

I can totally picture Brett laughing hysterically and calling you that. I with you on this one. The only thing better than eating chocolate, is peanut butter with chocolate. I have a couple of favorites I should give the recipes for. John and I take vanilla ice cream and dump spoonfuls of peanut butter on top and mix m&ms or chocolate syrup in it. Soo good.

Oh and I'm sure Brett told you his dad eats sandwiches with Miracle whip and peanut butter on them. See you really do belong in the family!

You are so funny Kristy! You crack me up. So the other day I was thinking of you cause we drove by a Sonic. So of course I asked Dj if he remembered that funny story I told him when we were at sonic and he said yes. I started to laugh so hard. Man that was a good night! And dont worry he didn't drop anything!!! lol So Dj and I are coming up this saturday to drop off a bed and we need to drop off your wedding gift. Will you guys be there? Let me know! And I will keep u updated. We are only going up and back so it will be a short time.

if only we'd known you were such a peanut butter connoisseur......pretty good stuff! I caught Kyle doing "peanut butter fingers" as we call them (when you use your fingers as a spoon out of the jar!) just the other day. gotta love it!

I know we've never met, but I'm one of Brett's cousins... and I share your love for peanut butter. You have got to try Peanut Butter on Graham Crackers. I just discovered this a week ago. Love it, love it, love it.

Yes indeed, I remember I used to eat peanut butter by the spoonful as a kid and I'd always get in trouble....or have panic attacks when the peanut butter stuck to my throat and I couldn't breathe!!! What a treat! "You want me to put peanut butta cups on ya eggs???" Name that movie. And by the way Ashley still doesn't understand that peanut butter marshmallow tortillas are official! I just had to add my peanut butter lovin comments. Hope everythings good with the newlyweds.
