She Said: Purification Days 7 & 8: “Woman Overboard!!”

June 3, 2010 by  

First of all, is that a pic of a MAN, or a WOMAN, on that scale?

Secondly, I just LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this. After going over like 2 things I need hubs to pick up at store on way home from work tonight, he says: “And, just so you know, I AM G>E>T>T>I>N>G   R>E>A>L   P>E>A>N>U>T  B>U>T>T>E>R>, too”.  So, I rattle off (bark) major incongruencies in what is FOUND in “real” peanut butter, vs. what SHOULD be in Peanut Butter (which, as you would think, would be TWO items: “Peanuts. Salt.”), right?

DRUMROLL, please:

Thirdly (and I got just SOOO much joy and THRILL out of this one! What a parenting and spousal G L O R I O U S moment. Hubs tried to prove a point and it spit at him in the face):

Hubs (after I proved my point above) rattled off AGAIN, “This is ridiculous. Peanut Butter is a staple product for kids. ALL KIDS. Always has, always will be. And, that stuff was disgusting when I had to stir it yesterday”.

Then he says, “Kids, what did you think of the peanut butter sandwich you had yesterday for lunch?

Everyone replies (without ANY coaching from me [not to say I wouldn’t have gotten my claws in them and paid them JUST TO SAY they loved it, HAD I had notice]…): “We liked it; why?”

G L O R I O U S moment for HER, last night.

Fourthly, no worries about me cleaning out my purses and handbags. Did you not get the memo that I’m doing that this weekend — it’ll only take about 8 hours each day (being serious) — you’re fine watching the kids all weekend while I do that, the Master Closet, and the Master Bedroom, right?

Lastly, YES – you will be leaving the house for good if you complain one more freakin’ time about the grocery bill from eating healthy or DEMAND that I still feed the kids certain things rummaging through garbage dumpsters to find the food you’ve been drooling over.

  1. We too eat only Natural Peanut Butter, both Jiffy and Peter Pan have come out with a natural version and it doesn’t have to be stirred but I prefer Smucker’s version.

    Good to know so I don’t have to spend $$ trying out varying kinds. Happy to know I’ve got the best on in the good ‘ole pantry!

    Everything in moderation. I’m all about learning healthy lifestyles. But if that means I have to give up Little Debbie? Aw HEY-ELL no. she’s my bff.


    Kat Reply:

    Oh, no WORRIES over there. I am really going to try moderation, when we first come out the gates into ‘normalcy’. Oh… I love the PB wafers (covered in chocolate) of Little Debbies. Goodness gracious!

    For the record, we are obsessed with Smucker’s natural peanut butter. Man, I could eat a mountain of that goodness!! 🙂 Here’s a tip: store it upside down before it’s first opened. The oil will settle at the bottom (which is really the top where the lid is). That way when you flip it over and first stir it, the oil just falls down into the bottom of the jar. You also have to make sure you stir it really well that first time–if not, the parts that don’t get much of the oil will harden too much and it will be difficult to spread that part. And then after that first time, you shouldn’t have to stir it anymore. Our kids love Smucker’s when they are dipping their crackers–but I will admit that if they’re having a sandwich, they request “special peanut butter” (Jif). As for me and my husband, though, we both prefer the taste of the healthy stuff now. Give it time–Dave will get used to it and maybe even grow to like it better!! 🙂


    Kat Reply:

    OK – how funny that they ask for the “special stuff” for sammies. Too ironic. Meanwhile… okay — your TIP about putting it upside down? Genius! And I considered myself astute. Not so much!

    I think Dave will “eventually” get used to it. You see that pantry from y’day’s post, CK? Is that not gorgeous (and healthy crap is all over the shelves… finally!)?

    I told D that he shouldn’t have to stir it after the first time… maybe coming from you, he’ll believe it.

    Oh, I WISH I could dip a Hershey’s bar into the PB RIGHT NOW!

    I’m right there with you on the PB. For the record? You are supposed to stir peanut butter. The American public got brainwashed by additives to think otherwise and now they think it’s “gross”. You go girl!


    Kat Reply:

    Yeah, like Ally said — people! We are soo brainwashed. Thanks for the support, girl!
