A Wee Little Problem

I know that everyone has issues in their households. For example, Cee Cee from My Little Bit of Heaven has a toilet paper roll problem. I have to admit that her problem happens in our household once in a while as well. 

The problem in our household has been going on for a long time and it involves peanut butter.  I love peanut butter as do most of the people I live with. I always make sure to have plenty for the grandchildren. But we have one member of our household that REALLY loves his peanut butter. On apples. On carrots. On shoe leather.

He opens that jar and dips a big old glob of the stuff on the end of a carrot and eats it. Not just once but, yes folks, he double dips. He is a big fat old double dipper. All together now, EWWWWWW! 

For years my daughters and I have complained  that he ruins peanut butter by doing that. We won't use it once we know he has opened the jar.  

I thought I had solved the problem by purchasing his own jar of peanut butter. Super crunchy even. But no, I found him with his carrot dipped in the smooth creamy jar the other day. His excuse was that he didn't remember which jar was his. 

Well maybe this will help. I have printed multiple labels for future jars. Now I hope he can read.

Oh and on a final note, this zucchini is one that I made the farmer let grow just to see how large it would get.  Some frost got some of the plant but I still think I will let it go for a while longer.  Isn't this huge? I have my stinky foot there because I wanted you to see how big it was in comparison. Oh and I don't have small feet either.

Perhaps I can club the peanut butter double dipper with this when caught in the act.

Bwhahahaahahaahah~~~~~~!!!!!!! Oh my gosh, Vonda!
You had me laughing so hard this morning. THANK YOU!!!

You are so funny sometimes. lol!

Will you make a set of those labels for my peanut butter double dippers, too?
And one for the milk, THAT is double nasty :P

Swipe that. Just make a label for me as the normal eater/drinker and a label for the rest of my family as the evil double dippers.

And when you're done with that colossal zuke, send it my way, k?

Yet another benefit of living alone! Double-dipping and nobody cares! I LOVE peanut butter, so I never buy it...except when I need to make another batch of Smooch cookies. So there was a jar of extra crunchy in the pantry on Saturday...when the power went out for 18 hours...and I couldn't make dinner... well, let's just say, Smooch won't be getting her homemade cookies this week. I am a sinner. Thanks for being my confessional.

We are bad about eating peanut butter by the spoonfuls, but double dipping isn't allowed. Atleast I hope everyone follows the rules!
That zucchini looks to be a size 22. tee hee

I am now craving a big glob of peanut butter with chocolate chips!
I guess I'll finish off the chocolate zucchini cake instead. Yous would make lots of cakes and zucchini bread!

Funny! Thats very sweet of you to label his jar. Altho, now he will have to come up with another excuse when he decides to double dip in your jar!

Double dipping-say it ain't so!! At my house its the toilet paper never getting changed unless I do it!!!

OMG!! It's the toilet paper never getting changed in my house; of course when "somebody" else is in need of tissue then of course it MUST be someone's fault?!
The peanut butter on the other hand: it disappears really fast, but ABSOLUTELY no double dipping! Dodgeman and I love PB&J sandwiches! Teresa

AAAAhhhhhh!!! I think I'll keep my problem over yours! A great big 'ewww' to your dear hubby.
Please have him read this:
Maybe, just maybe, he'll switch to putting his PB on a plate. Bacteria l.o.v.e.s protein (ie:PB!). They'd get married if they could.
