Survey: Do You Eat Peanut Butter With a Spoon?

This may seem a desultory question, not too connected with the greater stream of culinary conversation. But as many of us admit to feeling less than inspired in the early days of March, we couldn't help but wonder if you resort to an age-old technique to keep you fortified and energized: eating peanut butter straight out of the jar with a spoon. Well, do you?

Eating peanut butter straight from the jar has become a recurring theme in my household. My husband loves it so much -- it's his comfort food and his easy snack. It's come to the point where if I hear him moving around downstairs, between work phone calls and errands, and I hear the spoon drawer open, softly... you can bet I am going to smell peanut butter next time I go in the kitchen!
