Peanut, Peanut Butter

Had an impromptu blind date with fellow actress and food blogger Amy yesterday!


Since it was National Peanut Butter Day, I called about 10 businesses to see if they carried any appropriate creamy, nutty treats for our meetup. To my surprise, only 3 did; forgot that one was completely allergen-free – and I think I offended them (sorry).

PB Pinkberry was what I was jonesing for, but it had already been discontinued at the closest location. Went with the next best option:


Don’t think I’ve ever been to Twirl and NOT overloaded my cup with a smorgasbord of at least different 5-6 flavors/fruits/toppings. In honor of this national holiday, I showed a lot of restraint – just FroYo…


…and Peanut Butter Chips…


…pleased to say it satisfied my craving!


We parted just as the sun went to sleep.



Wasn’t too hungry at dinnertime, so I ate melon and miso


…then around 10pm, I broke into the only Peanut Butter left in the house (from our Halloween stash)


All that sugar had me craving salt – two handfuls of Pretzel Crisps before bed!


A little trivia – one of my first professional gigs was singing the “Peanut, Peanut Butter – and Jelly” song for The Merrill Staton Children’s Voices. I have never heard the finished product – if anyone remembers growing up listening to this recording, please let me know – I’ve been curious about the end result my entire life!!!

Are you allergic to peanuts? If not, did you celebrate yesterday?

  • Sarah Jordan

    • Lynn at The Actors Diet

      was it the version sung by the merrill staton children’s voices?!?

  • Jacky

    I am so thankful that I am not allergic to peanuts, I love love love PB. And yes I certainly did celebrate; pb&j breakfast, ants on a log snack and pb smoothie for dinner. Love those skyline pics.

  • Cindy

    I had a pb&J lunch and a Peanut butter cookie Larabar for a late afternoon snack. Love me some peanut butter!

  • Emily

    I don’t know what I would do if I was allergic to peanuts! I love PB!
    I didn’t do much to celebrate yesterday- just had waffles with peanut butter for breakfast. But, I did with So Delicious’ National Peanut Butter Day Giveaway! I’ll be getting a prize package from Justin’s Nut Butter- so excited! <3
