How To Eat Peanut Butter

I know that I am going to risk sounding like a commercial with this next sentence.

To best show you how yummy Tropical Traditions Coconut Peanut Butter is to your taste buds, allow Mr. Smiley to show you how to properly polish off a jar of Coconut Peanut Butter (WARNING:  If you have a peanut allergy look no further.)

Let me set the stage.  Mr. Smiley woke up around 10 AM a few weeks ago.  I had made cheese eggs for him . . . but they were cold.  His brothers were spending time with The Lord reasonably quietly in their bedroom.
I figured that I could multitask and spend quality time with the bambino and God (At the time, I had just started my Esther study and was so excited!  I still am but now I am more realistic that I can’t do my quiet time and feed my child.) Said 30 pound child was to eat his healthy free range raw cheese eggs seasoned with Real Salt breakfast.

The Tropical Traditions Peanut Butter was out only to make the banana enticing to this child’s unusual aversion to bananas.  I didn’t intend for the coconut peanut butter to become Mr. Smiley’s entire meal.

“You want me to eat this?  It’s on a pink plate?  What will Dad say?”

Hmmm, Jodi, I feel sorta sly being the first to comment for another give-away when we just finished your granola this morning! (snail mail coming your way)

My older DDs are studying the coconut oil book we just rec'd with a recent order from Tropical Traditions - I'm subscribed to their emails already - and have started washing their faces with the coc.oil!

I'm sure my PB lovers (all of us) would like to try this!
