Everyone has that one food which they ALWAYS keep at home. Are you surprised that mine is peanut butter? Last year, I made the mistake of underestimating my capcaity to get through a jar and lo and behold, we eventually ran out of peanut butter. Sure, I could have rushed to the supermarket to buy a replacement jar…if natural peanut butter was freely available in Mumbai. Fortunately my sister in Dubai came to the rescue and sent me some. Since that
dreadful day, you better believe I stock up at every chance I get. I currently have 3 unopened jars in the pantry and my mom who is now travelling just picked me up a couple more. If you are as ‘nutty’ about peanut butter as I am, this lunch is for you!
Packed Lunch: The Peanut Butter Lovers Edition
Before I dive into the food, check out the new lunch-bag my mom hooked me up with:
Apparently showcasing my past
plastic bag lunch-bag is a bad reflection on her….*cough* dramatic *cough*
- My current favorite sandwich
Peanut butter & tofu on rye bread from Le Pain Quotidien–> best bread ever!
- Carrot sticks topped with even more peanut butter
- Pineapple & choc chips
Is it possible to inject sugar into crops? I’m pretty sure that’s what the farmers here are doing with pineapple!
Random F.Y.I: Americans spend almost $800 million a year on peanut butter, making it one of the most frequently purchased items in the supermarket. And if I lived in the US, that might change to $900 million !
