Ever since I was a little kid, I have love loved peanut butter.
I would sneak spoonfuls, I loved the stuff so much.
Weird fact – my parents used to store the peanut butter in the fridge. No idea why. They did this with pancake syrup too.
It wasn’t until the past year that I finally branched out from they typical “skippy” type peanut butter and started trying the healthier types of peanut butter. You know, the ones that DON’T have a bunch of ingredients I can’t pronounce and my least favorite of all “hydrogenated oil”. Yuck!
Typically if the ingredients say more than “peanuts, salt” I’m a little skeptical.
One thing I do remember from being a kid was the excitement of a new jar.
A new jar meant a fresh smooth top.
When we opened a fresh jar, we always drew a heart in the top. It was a must. And you’re supposed to think of someone you love and it’s supposed to trigger them, magically through the airwaves, to think of you.
I have no idea if this is true. It makes absolutely no sense.
But to this day, I cannot open a new jar of peanut butter without first drawing a heart and thinking of someone that I love.
And honestly, that person is usually sitting across the counter from me…looking at me like I’m bat-ass crazy and wondering why it takes so long just to make a darn piece of toast.
Do you draw a heart in your peanut butter? I tried to google this to get more info, but found nothing.
