I Freakin’ Love Peanut Butter

Apparently my favorite peanut butter is being recalled.

Technically, no one has gotten sick from the exact product that I buy…they’ve just expanded the recall to include all peanut products made by this manufacturer…and I’m already 2/3 finished with my jar…so….

My point is that I went to the store and bought a DIFFERENT kind of peanut butter after work today because I clearly can’t go 24 hours without it. A hassle, but worth it.

And also, since we’re talking about peanut butter (and when am I not?), I have a new brown bag lunch idea for you.

Last week I made a full box of pasta because clearly my eyes are way bigger than my stomach (they are also bigger than my casserole dishes), so I had some left over.

While I do love salads for lunch, sometimes it’s nice to switch it up and I’m not one to spit in a leftover horse’s mouth.


Friggin’ idioms.

Anyway, so what I did was toss together leftover noodles, a bunch of veggies and a quick peanut sauce.

1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon Sriracha (optional if you can’t take the heat)
a splash of water, unfiltered from the faucet, like a daredevil

Stir it together, pour it on your pasta mixture, shake it up in some tupperware, and you’re good to go.

Look, I know I throw some crazy things together before work, but at least I didn’t turn on the oven this time.

  1. I’ve made a pb sauce before… it’s so rich! Love.

    And my mom felt the need to text me about the recall. It didn’t bother me so much. Nor did the empty section of shelving at TJ’s. I just bought what was still there… lol

  2. This sounds amazing! I go through phases with peanut butter. Right now, we’re kind of on a break. But I love peanut sauce!

  3. I like the idea of a quick & easy peanut sauce!

    My mom warned me about the peanut butter recall too. Luckily, I’m so bad about peanut butter that I literally can’t have it in my apartment, because when I do, I go through a jar in 1.5 days flat. =\

  4. This is such a good idea. Peanut sauce is delicious. I love peanut butter and flat out refuse to date anyone that has a peanut allergy. I just can’t guarantee that I won’t accidentally kill them.
