I heart peanut butter. On toasted wheat bread. On untoasted wheat bread. In cookies. In candy. But not in ice cream.
I haven't saved so much money since she stopped wearing diapers. There is nothing like a peanut butter sandwich consumed on the way to a restaurant to ease the dent in our bill.
And for the one-too-many nights when a proper dinner hasn't been planned for, I reach for the jar of creamy peanut butter.
I know for many families, having a speck of peanut butter can lead to severe allergies.
For me, it's a nutritional time-saver and low-cost meal. (Why this topic was never covered in the parental tome What to Expect: The Toddler Years is beyond me.)
When my sister was a kid, there was no end to how much butter-coated noodles she would consume.
What's your child's favorite low-cost meal?
