This has become my new go-to sauce to keep in the fridge. We eat it over steamed vegetables and brown rice, stirred into plain hummus and even as a salad dressing. I just picked up more peanut butter at the store last night, so I have ‘make peanut dipping sauce’ on my to-do list for today. Once the Monday motivation hits….
Random story (skip to the bottom for the recipe): My girl, age 7, all of the sudden loves peanut butter. As in requests PB&J sandwiches for lunch instead of just tolerating them, eats peanut butter + celery for after school snacks and recently looked at me like I was the greatest person in the world when I gave her peanut butter + sliced apples. I am taught over and over again that kids come around to things on their own time – be it with eating peanut butter, potty training, learning to read and so much more. It’s pretty cool to watch, but it’s also a lesson I keep learning the hard way.
