Let's Celebrate Peanuts!

Did you know that March is National Peanut Month? I had no idea until I saw another food blogger post about it today. Our family is HUGE fans of peanut butter and we go through big jars of it too quickly!

Here's some fun facts about peanuts:
  • National Peanut Month had its beginnings as National Peanut Week in 1941 and was expanded to a month-long celebration in 1974.
  • Americans eat 3 pounds of peanut butter per person every year. I think my husband eats way more than that!
  • One acre of peanuts will make 30,000 peanut butter sandwiches.
Now to share some of my favorite recipes that feature peanuts/peanut butter.










And always...just a peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwich!
