  1. I cannot believe you have a day for Peanut butter …….. ?!!!
    Must admit I love the stuff, although Jiff here in UK is not as good as you get.
    A bit like Idaho Potato mash – lovely but only if I get it from the US.
    Must blame your Marines for this English eccentricity. 🙂 as they feed me both when I worked with them several years ago.
