Mmm ... I like peanut butter with green peppers and onions and tomatoes and lots of hot chile peppers in a West African chicken soup over lots of rice. Does that count?

Or that nice peanut butter dip for Thai stuff ...

Now the kids have grown up, we no longer have peanut butter in the house.

Sorry -- I assumed it was just for kids

I keep peanut butter in the house. Today (I have a cold and the idea of food wasn't really interesting) I had a peanut butter sandwich. Actually two tasted open-faced sandwiches. I like crunchy peanut butter and I like it spread on hot toast so it gets gooey.

Celery. And that's not very adventurous. It's so good straight out of the jar I can't think of any reason to mix it anything strange.

Didn't Elvis like pickles and bananas, or mustard, on his peanut butter sandwiches?

Toast? Didn't I teach you to grill 'em like a cheese sandwich?

OMG, what unforgivable thread drift! :oops:

I don't mind the drift at all. Little celery in France? Bizarre. Can you get celeriac? I was jazzed to see that at our local market this Saturday. Of course, we have celery available year-round, though it's especially good right about now.

As to the original topic, I've never used peanut butter in a way that's the least bit unusual. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

I like to take leftover steamed rice and fry it up with a little oil, some celery, carrots, onion, maybe some chicken, whatever else is sitting in the fridge, and a good dose of red pepper flakes. As soon as it's fried up nicely, it comes off the heat and a dollop of creamy peanut butter goes in. Mix it all up and you have peanut butter rice.

I put a tad of chunky peanut butter on apple wedges ....

by Karen/NoCA » Thu Mar 23, 2006 10:35 pm

for breakfast sometimes. In my younger and more foolish days, I would eat it right out of the jar! Always the chunky kind.

Satay sauce. Yes, indeedy! That gets my vote.

There's also Chinese Dan Dan Mein, which traditionally is made with sesame seed paste, but in many Chinese restaurants in the USA is made with peanut butter instead. Having had it made both ways, I think I actually prefer it made with peanut butter.

Not sure if I'm doing this right - I couldn't find a "REPLY" to a message button. Anyway, I like peanut butter with vanilla ice cream.

You did fine, Howie! You can use Reply To at lower left or Quote at upper right to respond to a message. Either is fine, but "Quote" automatically plugs in a backquote (which you may edit), and that helps substitute for threading.

The most bizarre thing I've mixed with peanut butter is balogna and Miracle Whip. Somehow I got on a kick of eating a peanut butter, bologna and Miracle Whip sandwich as an after school snack in high school. Twenty-five years later I still get the craving for that concoction about once every two years.

A local favorite is to mix corn syrup with peanut butter. Spread that on bread and it's almost as good as honey.
