The FDA's Recall on Peanut Butter Products has many of us double-checking our pantry. Hopefully, you are keeping an eye on the origin of your peanut butter and you are healthy and well. The link above has the latest FDA info, if you need it.
But, this post...well, let the rant begin.
I'm not a parent.
I've never personally experienced the effort it takes to get a handful of toddlers ready for a carpool.
Nor do I know the *fun* of smearing peanut butter in a child's hair in an attempt to remove a clump of gum with one hand, juggling a phone call with the other hand, while packing lunches...with the third?
Trader Joe's sells celery pre-loaded with peanut butter?
(Some of it's recalled, BTW.)
I thought "Uncrustables" PB and Jelly was the epitome of...
I just going to call it as I see it.
This is not busy-ness.
We are not too BUSY to smear peanut butter in celery.
We are too LAZY.
I can forgive "Uncrustables."
(Which as of this date are NOT part of the recall.)
If I REACH, making a PB & J involves opening 2 jars, (only 1 if you already bought Smucker's Goober grape) dirtying 2 spoons, reaching for 1 ziplock bag, and disposing of the paper towel which you used to wipe the crumbs off the counter.
But, buying pre-packaged peanut butter-filled celery?
That means you were too lazy to wash the celery and smear peanut butter in it.
To those who buy pre-loaded celery:
Good thing TiVo allows you to order a Domino's pizza directly from your TV.
Because, seriously, I'm concerned you-
Okay, well, I'm done.
Tomorrow I'll be bright and smiley.
