NATIONAL PEANUT BUTTER DAY

April 2nd is National Peanut Butter Day – in the US Peanut Butter is a favorite of children and adults alike.  There is nothing like a Peanut Butter Jelly Sandwich to get you to drink your milk.  When I was a child, it took lots of Milk to wash down the Peanut Butter and unlike most other kids, I was not a fan of Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches.  Fortunately, for the Peanut Butter Industry, more people love Peanut Butter than dislike it.  It’s not that I dislike it, it’s just that I have these childhood memories of not enough milk to go with my school lunch to wash down the Peanut Butter.  Fortunately, I don’t ever remember my Mother packing Peanut Butter & Jelly Sanwiches beyond the first time she did it when I was in first grade.  It has stuck with me ever since.

As an adult, I have a new regard for Peanut Butter and even will eat a Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich occasionally.  However, there are many other uses for Peanut Butter and Jelly and one of those is to make Peanut Butter & Jelly Cookies. /cookies/peanut-butter-jelly-cookies/ These are really good!  Even if they do not look beautiful.

Another use for Peanut Butter is to spread it on Hong Kong Waffles.  Hong Kong Waffles are a soft waffle that can actually be rolled up.  In Hong Kong, it is a street food which is spread either with Peanut Butter or with Nutella.  Add a little bit of Jelly and you have a Peanut Butter & Jelly Waffle.

How many ways can you think of to use Peanut Butter & Jelly?   Please let me know.
