I put a small amount of Kerrygold butter (the best by the way) on my 1 piece of toast in the morning. How should I measure it?

When you can no longer see bread, that's 1 serving.

I think that's for peanut butter... :bigsmile:

Tape measure. Or ruler. Whichever.

What is all this fuss about, weigh the amount you use, in grams. Weigh it as you take it from the container, simple works for anything.

If I had my way, by the stick.

Kerrygold is even better. It does not come by the stick but in 1/2 lb. blocks

Do you use butter with your peanut butter?

I eyeball it. I guess I'm a rebel. I know what a tablespoon looks like because I have baked all my life. So I gauge it based on portion of a tablespoon, either 1 T or 0.5 T.

I weigh PB, but I have a pretty good idea of what a serving on a piece of bread looks like too (after weighing it many times).

My butter has little tick marks on the wrapper which tell you where a table spoon is, etc. I just use that.

Well I do when I make a grilled peanut butter & jelly, just not on the same side of the bread.

Next you'll be telling me you've never had a peanut butter, honey, and cinnamon sandwich.

More seriously, I grew up having grilled PB&J as a "feel better" food when sick and knew them as Teddy Bear Sandwiches. Not sure how they got that name.

Edited to add: use quality peanut butter, preserves, and real butter. Cheap jellies and margarine aren't going to give you a good sandwich.

I feel so behind everyone else.

I didn't even try peanut butter and banana sandwiches until I was 38.

I am 62 and I still haven't tried one. Might be because bananas make me barf.

How about peanut butter/brown sugar sandwiches?!? Still one of my guilty pleasures.

So how is it living under a rock?
I often feel like I'm living under a lot of pressure. Thanks for asking! :laugh:

Ummm, no. But I could see that being tasty.
