Peanut Butter Giveaway

I stumbled upon these pictures and had a good laugh.  That's me in the boots and little Paul...who is now 6'4.  There's mom in the background.

The neighbor girl and me, rockin' big wigs.  Oh yea!

Sam and Ceth, ruling the road Big Wheel style.  Doesn't that look like Kael and Caleb?  I sure think so.

Sam and his dad.  Wow, makes me realize how much Ceth, Sam's brother, looks like Garth.
I take oodles of pictures of our boys.  They are pretty used to me with a camera and rarely give me much reaction.  Caleb is the one out of my two that will ham it up on occasion.  I like hammy.  Kael is a little more serious and often looks past me or gives me a look that would say, ‘not again mom.’

Here is Kael filling Daddy's shoes...

Well trying to at least...Sam wears a size 14 shoe so Kael has a little bit of room to grow.

Here are the boys with one of our many new friends Mr. Hopper.  These mammoth grasshoppers are everywhere!
I made the most amazing dinner tonight for myself because Sam was eating at the church with some of our new volunteer friends.  We love our volunteers and there are a few young adult volunteers that we have grown especially fond of.  Sad that they will be leaving on Wednesday, but hopeful they will come back to visit again.  I am sure they will.
I will share with you about my amazing dinner tomorrow night because I devoured it.  It had no hope of getting its picture taken.  I was too hungry, and it was too delicious smelling, and then it was delicious tasting…I sat there thinking, “I could eat this everyday for every meal.”  It is healthy and it is tasty!
I know…you are in such suspense right now.  Going to have to keep you there for 24 hours, until I can make more; I don’t want to ruin the surprise.
I did want to share with you about my favorite peanut butter.  You may be thinking, ‘seriously Ronda, peanut butter…that’s the best you could come up with?’  Wrong.  It is because I love you, and this peanut butter that I am sharing it with you today.  It is chocked full of good stuff.  And it has a wonderful sweet taste and texture.  When I found it I had to share it and I sent my folks some in Washington.  And guess what, they love it too.

Here is what I love about "Naturally More":
1.       It is full of ‘GOOD FOR YOU’ ingredients and is all natural
2.       It is de-lish-ous!
3.       It only costs $2.88 at Walmart (and yes they carry it in Washington Walmart’s too)
4.       It has OMEGA-3 Fatty Acids (good for your brain)
5.       It does not contain hydrogenated oils, no trans fats, and contains no cholesterol.

I do not get any incentive for suggesting this delicious peanut butter to you, just the foreknowledge that you might buy and enjoy it as much as we do is enough incentive.  It's ingredients are: Dry roasted peanuts, flax seed, wheat germ, sugar, honey, egg white.
Leave me a comment either on facebook or the blog as to your favorite thing to eat that involves peanut butter and I will randomly pick someone to send a jar to.
My favorite…oh man, so many!  So hard to pick…um, a peanut butter and Nutella sandwich, that would be tops for me.  But that also equals a ridiculous quantity of calories so I only eat this when I am pregnant, or breast feeding.  That way I can justify the splurge.
I have wanted to make my friend Manuel’s European Sweet Bread, but have been unable to locate all the ingredients.  Who knew Anise would be such a hard item to find!  I have looked at two stores with no luck.  Joplin doesn’t have many more stores.  I will keep my eye out and as soon as I find some I am making a batch.  I have heard it is amazing!
You may have also noticed that I have a new look for the ole blog.  Hope you like it.  I sure do!
Lifting you up in prayer! Don't forget to comment about your favorite thing to eat peanut butter with/on.  Hopefully there will be more than two of you who do...or else I will have to flip a coin.  That could be fun too I guess.



  1. Love the new look. Peanut butter on toast with sliced banana and honey drizzled over it all... so good!

  2. Newmans Own Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups and red wine! Xoxo <3

  3. Our family enjoys using peanut butter to make homemade peanut butter cups...Yum!

    Of course, just on a spoon out of the jar works too! :)
