for the love of peanut butter

I have only been partly following the FDA peanut butter recalls due to a salmonella outbreak. You see, in my house we love peanut butter. We are in major denial. In fact, just this evening my husband stood behind me eating peanut butter filled pretzels as I was reading the FDA peanut butter recall list on the computer.

Lucky for us, the products we have are not on the list—yet. They are updating it all the time.

It's just as well, really. There are plenty of other foods we should be eating instead which would be either healthier or more eco-correct.

So I remain on alert, but still a wee bit in denial. I hope my next post is not from the hospital.

Thanks for the link! I have been looking at my bags of PB pretzels that I just got at Trader Joe's, wondering if I should toss them...PB is such a staple for me! Ugh. Thankfully the kid doesn't really like it, or I'd be in trouble!

I did give in and have a PB sandwich yesterday, but it's a jar I've had for awhile...so far, so good!

I too been skeptical of all things peanut butter lately. Did you know how easy it is to make your own peanut butter? I did a post on it w/a link to a recipe. http://mindfulmomma.typepad.com/mindful_momma/2009/01/homemade-peanut-butter-anyone.html
