    My PB&J sandwich is no longer PB-less… sorta

    A few weeks ago our friends D&T decided to move back to New York. As they cleaned out their fridge, they left some of their left-over condiments with us. Although I could never put Tobasco sauce to use in my house (I can’t digest spicy foods), they had lots of other goodies I was happy to take, and curious to try.

    I will start off by saying that I can’t stand peanut-butter! I like it in they tiny Reese’s peanut-butter cups you score while Trick-or-Treating, but that’s about it. For me, the best way to spoil a jelly sandwich was to put peanut butter on it. I think PB is something you have to grow up with, and the majority of Europeans that I’ve talked to that haven’t (grown up around it), can’t stand it either.

    Well… NO MORE!!! Today amongst D&T’s food gifts I discovered sunflower seed butter. Yeah, I know it’s not the same as PB, but it’s so damn good. It actually tastes a bit like Halvah (for those that have tried it), which is an additional bonus for me because it makes me remember the goodies I ate growing up.

    2 tablespoons have 7g of protein (which is good for pregnancy)… and I’m ignoring how many calories are in that same serving.

    I’m a happy girl today! By extension, G will be a happy boy too, since nutty-type butter spread will no longer be exiled from our home.

      That does sound really yummy!
      You know, I am not a huge fan of PB either, the only way I like it at all is if it is the extra crunchy kind, but either way, I think I would rather have what you’re talking about!
