National Peanut Butter Lovers Day (RECIPES)

NATIONAL PEANUT BUTTER LOVERS DAY
Ah, peanut butter. One day is not enough to recognize peanut butter. March 1st was made for National Peanut Butter Lover's Day. The goober has been paired, blended and added with many tasty results! The creamy, nutty goodness that is peanut butter is so amazingly delicious that when we pair it with creamy and dreamy chocolate, we almost have bacon.

We digress. Another great love is peanut butter ice cream. Blended smooth with a few chopped nuts and a drizzle of peanut butter syrup is a peanut butter lovers dream come true.
The slang term for peanut butter in World War II was "monkey butter." A monkey visited the lab at Kellogg's one day and dipped his banana in a jar of peanut butter, and he's been ape over the combination ever since. Actually, banana slices with peanut butter sandwiched between them and dipped in chocolate make a terrific snack. Peanut butter and bananas was a combination even fit for a king. Elvis Presley loved a peanut butter and banana sandwich or two.
Then peanut butter got its passport and traveled the world. It paired up with some shrimp and got a little saucy. The result is a Thai peanut butter shrimp that is so yummy it had to be true love.

Things heated up a little when peanut butter jumped into the stew pot to sweat it out with a spring chick seasoned with some cayenne. African Chicken Peanut Stew tastes better than ever.

Some of the best times peanut butter has ever had is with marshmallows. Fudge enjoys a satisfying dessert status to be envied.
