Hip-hip hooray! It’s Peanut Butter Day. Gotta love it.
Every year, on January 24th, peanut butter lovers celebrate this favorite foodie holiday. And, if you’re not allergic to peanuts or peanut butter, jump right in.
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches all around!
Have you ever tried a crispy peanut butter and jelly sandwich, with the gooey and warm peanut butter oozing out the sides?
Can you beat that? Maybe you’re a fluffernutter fan, smearing one slice of bread with sticky marshmallow fluff and the other with crunchy or creamy peanut butter. Slap them together, and you have sandwich heaven in your hands. (Just don’t count those calories.)
Maybe you prefer peanut butter honey, peanut butter with bananas (or Elvis Presley’s own fried peanut butter and banana sandwich), peanut butter and bacon or even my childhood favorite: peanut butter and tuna salad. (Don’t even ask!)
However you slice it, Peanut Butter Day is as good as it gets.
C'mon, you know you want to. Take a bite out of life today!
Just for fun, here’s an assortment of delicious peanut buttery (and just plain peanut) recipes to try:
- Colonial Williamsburg Peanut Soup
- Dog Food for Kids
- Peanut Butter Cup Pie
- Easy Peanut Brittle - Microwaving Makes Magic!
By the way, September 13th is Peanut Day. Twice a year is simply not enough for something so tasty!
