i have a problem.

i can’t stop eating the peanut butter in our house.

right there out of the jar.

heinous and uncouth.

please, if ever you are our guest, and are offered a sandwich with this said condiment, insist that we use a fresh, unopened bottle. otherwise you are subject to a peanut butter ravaged and abased with my passed, unstoppable spoon dips.


i try to qualify my food crime with buying organic, unsalted, sugar-free peanut butter.  in the end though, when you’re scraping the bottom of the glass, and your peasant blouse fits like lycra…..does it really matter?

last week i had had enough. i trash canned ALL the peanut butter in the house.

out of sight out of mind. out of my mouth.

{maybe the silverware will go next}

all was going so well until hunky hubby wanted his saturday peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

him: where’s all the peanut butter?

me: uh. well, ah…hmm. ahh….don’t i look cute in this dress?

20 minutes later my beloved returned from the market with a jar of…..skippy.


skippy, in like annette funicello?

skippy, where the ingredient list has sugar before peanuts?

if ever a label could boast its hydrogenated oil content this one does.

remind me of this when i’m checking in for my bypass surgery.

  • This made me giggle because as a kid, I hated the smell of peanut butter. My sister would eat it out of the jar and breathe on me GROSS! Peanut Butter breath! Fast forward to the present…when I'm in a need of a quick fix or need something to fill the tummy – I toast my high fiber bread 6 grams and put some peanut butter on the toast for quick protein. I too, ran out of peanut butter (but not from eating out of the jar) and I asked Blake to pick some up and he came home with Skippy too. What is with men and Skippy? I think it's a childhood thing. It doesn't taste nearly as good as mine from Whole Foods and it has a sweet taste. I never looked at the back but now I know why. OMG!

  • Sweet Nothings

    god I LOVE peanut butter

  • I am so glad to know I'm not the only one with this problem! I made the mistake of buying 2 for 1 at Henry's and could not stop eating them. To the point I had to throw one away…ahhhhhh! Anyway you could eat a few jars of peanut butter without any harm to your figure!


  • Oh Skippy..a symbol of my childhood. But seriously, sugar before peanuts? Quite possibly you could go through hypnosis to kick the PB habit? Then report back so I'll know if it'll work for my current white chocolate covered pretzel addiction.

    You always make me laugh Katie! xx oo Deb
