Until three years ago peanut butter used to be one of my favorite comfort foods. You know… on fresh Bunny Bread (if your from the Nola area) with grape jelly and a tall glass of ice cold milk? OOOOoooo OOOOoooo so good! Then down came the hammer, after a series of allergy tests…Kaboooom! ”Mrs. Reiners, do you ever get a funny feeling after you eat peanuts or peanut products?” Gasp??!!! NOOOOooooo!!!! ”You are allergic to peanuts.” I ask, “Are you sure?” “This can’t be!” “Why certainly my tests must have gotten mixed with someone else’s tests. I live on peanut M & Ms.” The ENT then proceeded to explain the levels of allergies and that mine was not a deathly allergy. Consequently, now I do not consume peanut butter (at least when anyone is looking ) but thanks to Jill at One Good Thing By Jillee I have a new and even better use for peanut butter.
She shows step by step how to get rid of the sticker yuck, from the left over residue, when you pull a price tag, piece of tape, label, or anything with adhesive off of anything. I just knew she was wrong…I just knew it. I mean if Goo Gone couldn’t do it, nothing could. Well, HOLY COW! It works!!! This chick knows her stuff…for real!! Check out my experimentation. Disclaimer***some adhesives are more stubborn than others. If you notice this, just push the peanut butter back over the adhesive and walk away and come back again later. Some things I left sit for an hour and some over night.

Bottles Used (They Were Trop50 Bottles)
My children were completely amazed with this and asked each day, “What are you doing with peanut butter again today?”
Even if you don’t have anything to take the sticker off of you have to try to take the label off of something to see how well this works.
One other tool I used was the little square plastic scrapper that comes with a Pampered Chef stone, hot water, and Dawn to cut the grease and get rid of the peanut butter.
Give this a try and let me know how it works for you

Kansas City BBQ Nachos Recipe from Betty Crocker.
Tried these the other night for family movie night. Coupled with the Green Hornet we had a rockin’ Sunday night. I might need some coaching on appropriate TV for children but hey it was family time !! Dinner was yummy! I also did side salad instead of cole slaw, the “fam” is not a fan of cole slaw. Talk about dinner in flash give this one a whirl!!
Years ago, 13 to be exact, I took a continuing education class through, Potporrui at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, USL back then. Each season they offer classes of various interests from business to hobbies, from A to Z. At this time I was pregnant with my first child and had an abundance of time on my hands. I taught at a sweet little Catholic School on Bayou Teche and because my husband, who is a rice farmer, was in the fields, what seemed to be ALL the time I needed to busy my time. The class was called Sweet Indulgences and was held for half a day on one Saturday morning. During this time, we got to make all sorts of bath and body concoctions to bring home and enjoy. We were also sent home with handouts with recipes to recreate these at home. Well you know how good intentions go !! I never got to far with those handouts they went in my crafting room along with all the other good intentions. Nevertheless, today Hayden came home from school complaining about a crick in his neck that has been annoying him on and off for some time. I imagine he gets this because he sleeps on the 40-minute bus ride, with his head hanging, and by the time he gets to his stop, it is stiff. This often leads to lower neck and back pain as well. Most of the time within a few minutes it’s gone and so is the thought from my head, but to today for some reason I remembered this class I took I took all those years ago, and how the instructor taught me how to make soothing bath salts. Interestingly enough this was all when I was pregnant for him. I think today I felt a little nostalgic and also a little bad for him as he has really been studying fervently for his finals. So, before I get CRAZY B**CH on him for making silly mistakes on his math study guide, I’m going to go draw him a bath with some of these soothing bath salts let him chill for a few minutes and pray that the night goes off without a hitch!!
