Sometimes you feel like making an elaborate bento.
And sometimes… you don’t.
But on the other hand, there’s never enough time to praise the awesomeness of peanut butter. PB, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…
I never tasted any peanut butter when I grew up. It’s just not stuff we have much over here. I first tried it when I was visiting a friend from the States. At first, I was suspicious – salty peanut paste and marmelade on the same toast? – but once I bit into it, I was an immediate convert. What I had missed!
It’s not just a toast spread either – it makes a great dip for all kinds of vegetables, I put it into my pad thai sauce to increase the already lovely peanuttiness, and let’s not even get into all the awesome possibilities of stirfry and satay sauce…!
I like mine best chunky, and without additional sugar. Sadly the grocery stores (where you can even get it, it will be in the “import” section if you don’t have to go to an Aisan supermarket to get it in the first place…) have stopped carrying that variant right now, it seems. Sigh.
How do you like yours?
