We  are total peanut butter fanatics around here. Love it.  I actually have a child that coats everything in peanut butter (including vegetables), because, he says it “just makes everything taste better”.  I’m not that fanatical, but, I do love me some peanut butter.  It’s just so darn good.

Today’s post not only has peanut butter, but, actual peanuts.  Real life, crunchy, fabulous peanuts. Yum.
