Celebrate National Peanut Butter Day

It's National Peanut Butter Day! 

From the internet: 
 "The average person consumes more than six pounds 
of peanut products each year, making peanut butter a very popular
household food. 
Peanut butter was invented by George Bayle, a St. Louis snack food maker, during the 1890's.
Did you know that it takes 550 peanuts to make a 12 ounce jar of peanut butter?"
To celebrate bake some peanut butter cookies or enjoy peanut butter as a spread on 
crackers, bread an apple slice or just enjoy a spoonful out of the jar.

Jif Peanut Butter is my personal favorite.
A little Kentucky trivia for you: 
 Jif Peanut Butter is made is in Lexington, KY 
Jif Peanut Butter, Creamy, 40 Oz

Love peanut butter cookies. Yummm! Now you have me thinking of them, but I must resist, I must resist! Wonder how long that will hold.

Mmmmm good! We love our peanut butter, especially on celery sticks! When we were kids, we would grab one of our mom's big spoons (please don't tell her) and put a big dollop of peanut butter on it and let the dog lick it. It was so funny to watch him!

I do love peanut butter - and those cookies sound delicious!

Well, there's another fun fact about Kentucky! I rarely eat peanut butter (although I do like it), but my husband probably goes through a jar a week, so I'm pretty sure he's keeping the average up for our household!
