March starts off with a delicious National Day. This Sunday March 1st is National Peanut Butter Lover's Day. Celebrated since 1990 when it was started to commemorate the anniversary of Peanut Butter made it's commercial debut.

According to the National Days Calendar Peanut Butter was first supplied by a doctor to his patients in 1890. It was to help people who couldn't chew. Good idea I guess except we all know how it can also get stuck on the roof of your mouth.

I am a huge peanut butter fan. I have been known to put it on everything including Chocolate donuts. Don't knock if you haven't tried it. And yes I am brand loyal. Peanut butter is always JIF and I prefer the crunchy.
