A New Fixture

This is my 200th post!*

*Standard exclusions apply. (Some partial creations still have not seen the light of day.)

I had an idea of something I wanted to post for this, but between a pulled muscle in my back and Scott's stomach flu, it just hasn't gotten finished. Go figure... But if I wait to post until I finish that post, I'm afraid I won't post until after Fetus is born. So instead my 200th post is about peanut butter.

Yes, that's right, peanut butter. Do you know how many times a day I put the peanut butter jar back in the pantry? It seems to range between 1 and 6! Scott's first pick for a meal is ALWAYS a PB&J, so he eats that almost once a day. And Claire's favorite snack is peanut butter sandwiched between graham crackers (which she can make by herself now, yay!) And let's be honest, those graham cracker and peanut butter sandwiches dipped in a glass of milk taste pretty good, so I've been known to indulge too. And when it's not that snack, I'm also fond of peanut butter and banana on toast. And a lot of very tasty baking involves peanut butter, especially things M likes. And because M is a real sucker for peanut butter, his 11pm snack is often those same graham cracker and peanut butter sandwiches. And as the mom, I usually get to put the jar away after all of these applications.

So why do I even put it away? I mean, I have lots of things in my kitchen that I keep out on my counter. My toaster. My new stand mixer. (!!! BTW, white won with 11 votes out of 21. Pictures to follow as soon as my kitchen is clean enough and I remember.) My flour, rice, and sugar canisters. And let's be honest, those all rarely get used more than once a day. Maybe I can call it the peanut butter canister and line it up with the rest.

Do you think it clashes?

I think it's more like modern art.

wrap tinfoil around it......it'll blend right in! LOL

Maybe you could wrap it in aluminum foil and it would blend right in? ----wow, I should read before I write... I'm nor erasing it because someone already said it.

But here's another thought: jsut grab one more canister and drop to PB jar down in it, then it'll LOOK like all the rest, but be right there when you need it.

Very funny. You should just put in inside another canister and shut the lid. Oh, I guess someone said that, too. Well, I think it's a good idea.

I think the PB fits in quite nicely there.

I say leave it on out :)

PB is a fixture in my kitchen too. I think it just has to go, no matter what. It isn't tacky, it is practical!
