You’re the Peanut to my Butter

Pin It!

National Chocolate-Covered Day, National Carrot Cake Day, National Oatmeal Day: I keep missing these days until after-the-fact, when someone tells me about them. So this time, I’m going to be early! National Peanut Butter Day (March 1st) is just too good to forget.

Peanut Butter Cup Babies


I love you, peanut butter!  Enjoy your well-deserved day of recognition!

  5. i’ll listen to “girl i want to lay you down” by alo simply for the line “you’re smooth and creamy…like peanut buttaaaa” haha

  6. I think I’ll celebrate the day making your peanut butter cookie dough babies, they look delicious!!

    Hi Katie

    I’ve been following your blog for a while and it’s GREAT! 🙂 anyway, about PB.. hmm.. as I’m not from the US it’s still a bit unfamiliar for me but it seems most of the US food bloggers use it everyday! 😀 must see if it’s available in stores here in Finland too and give it a try.

  11. Melinda says:

    Looks so yummy, all of it! I love PB!

  12. eaternotarunner says:

    I just had PB on a sweet potato, yum!

    I love the scrapbook page. 🙂

    Thanks for answering my question on Formspring about graduation recipes. Those look like some great ones. The Texas Caviar and Bugs Bunny Cake in particular caught my eye. Thank you also for answering the question about vegetable feeling pain. I didn’t ask that but I appreciated the response because–silly as it sounds–my mom has asked me that before.

    I did n’t know there was a Peanut Butter day! Flamin’ Nora what else have I missed?x

  15. EE says:

    I am going to celebrate my wedding anniversary that day. This might be a tad bit of sacrilege, but I prefer nuts to peanut butter. 😉 TCL, though, the man would only eat Dark Chocolate Dreams if he thought it would be acceptable.

    Happy Saturday, Katie!

  16. Katie says:

    Ahh, peanut butter. I used to hate it. What was wrong with me!?!?

  17. Jess says:

    I am SO excited for national PB day!!!

  18. Oh peanut butter I love you so much! There is no better partner for my chocolate obsession. Mmmmm!

  19. Michal says:

    Ah peanut butter how I love thee. I am so celebrating this one! 🙂

  20. welshsarah says:

    I have a serious obsession with peanut butter. I go through loads of the stuff. It’s my fave daily staple. However, my obligations tomorrow are with my country- celebrating St David’s Day. Maybe I can give peanut butter a little honour during the day though. 🙂
