Peanut Butter Or Bust...

“For good nutrition, it’s hard to beat Skippy.” -Annette Funicello, from a 1970’s Skippy peanut butter commercial

Before Paige moved home we had 2 varieties of peanut butter; Skippy Creamy and Skippy Chunky. This pretty much fulfilled our peanut butter needs since Brent likes chunky and creamy is my favorite.

Now an entire shelf in our fridge is filled with a variety of peanut butter options.

Paige has made homemade peanut butter and cashew nut butter in our BlendTec blender. She’s bought sunflower seed butter, honey roasted peanut butter, almond butter from Trader Joes, and almond butter with roasted flaxseeds from Whole Foods.

Paige would love New York City’s Peanut Butter and Company sandwich shop in Greenwich Village (see photo). It’s filled with all things peanut butter and a menu of peanut butter treats.

So, just after Paige amasses her collection of every nut butter on the market, she invites her friend, Korey, who is allergic to nuts, to come to town for a visit. Go figure!

“The next best thing to sliced bread is peanut butter.” -Lee Zalden, owner of Peanut Butter & Co.
