Peanut-Free Peanut Butter
Which is why when my coworker was complaining that the daycare facility that her toddler goes to does not allow peanut butter because some kids are allergic, and instead allows only fake peanut butter, I said "what is this fake peanut butter?" Well it is apparently made from roasted soybeans and it tastes just like peanut butter. Actually I may not be the best person to ask since I haven't have real peanut butter in years, but I think this stuff is delicious. What is actually funny is that my husband actually being allergic to peanut butter does not think that the thing that resembles something that could kill him is exciting. I said "It tastes just like it!", and he said "So why would I want to eat that?" But it is perfect for me. So far I have put it on Triscuits and graham crackers sometimes with a dollop of cherry jam on top too. It feels like I am getting away with something, it is so good. My coworker who actually does eat real peanut butter is not impressed, but for someone who lives with someone who is allergic to nuts this is a real find!
