    Aw Shell, thanks for the upcoming food thread. Even I, as a card-carrying member of the Chocolate Mafia, could see that we were infiltrating every thread 😉 I see some nice recipe exchanges coming up.

    And Sadie is just the cutest thing!!! Aren’t dogs so beautiful with their trusting eyes and wagging tails?

    *wants to get a dog real, real bad but can’t cos she lives in an apartment block. is sad :(*

    Beau says Hi to Sadie.

    I beg my fellow MonkBots…please, please, no Peanut Butter recipies!

  3. Squeebee Says:

    Peanut butter balls, peanut butter cookies, peanut butter ice cream cake……..mmmmmm…..oh so sorry shrew…I am a fan of the evil PB. Hope you are feeline better soon, Shrewbie!

    Thanks for the video, Shelley!

    I heart Sadie!! I love the way she was wagging her tail but wouldn’t look at the camera. What would we do w/o our canine buddies? Mu-shu (our sharpei) and Bob (our evil jack russell/boston terrier/chiahuaha mix) wave hello to Sadie and politely sniff her hindquarters as doggies do to get to know one another.

    Why no peanut butter? Did I miss something?

    It’s not that I’m obsessed with food–it’s the antics of Rowan and Claire that draw me in. They’ve turned me into a Cadbury egg revolutionary.

    Just about doggies – I was flicking through the TV stations earlier and I caught an episode of Steve Irwin’s (RIP) Australia Zoo series. It was so sad. It was the episode where Sue-ee (Steve’s dog) passed away from cancer. He just lay with her on the floor when she came home from the vets and stayed with her/slept with her until she passed away. I.was.bawling. (and so was poor Steve.)

    Isn’t it amazing how smelly, furry, slipper-eating hairballs become part of our lives that we cannot bear to be without.

    *misses her doggy who died four years ago…(x x Brownie)*

    Sorry Shelley, don’t mean to bring the mood down……Lee!!! I ate TWO of The Things that Dare Not Speak Their Names today. (REVOLUCION!!)

    And Shrewbie!! Just before I read your post, I had returned from the supermarket where I bought a large tub of peanut butter. The crunchy variety. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…..

    Shelley, you are adorable, hahaha. Thanks for making my afternoon (cuz I just woke up…) not suck, especially when I have SO much work to do right now! 🙂

    Amigo will come from the far reaches of the house to the sound of the peanut butter jar lid being removed. He also has a pavlovian response to the toaster, since I usually have peanut butter on my toast. Shelley, your food topic will come none too soon, considering the way we’ve hijacked this one!

    I feel the monkbot love guys.

    Lee…no peanut butter cause of the recall of PeterPan for Salmonella

    oh, duh!!! Watch out for #2111. No probs here in my house cuz we eat generic.

  11. Dr. Bob Says:

    Grrrr — I had to take my salmonella-butter back to the store. Not quite at the point of checking out the symptoms on the internet, but am keeping a sharp eye on Sam.

    I still love peanut butter.

    Hi to Sadie from my two wuppies — they are curled up in their beds.

    (Hey, did that make Sadie look up?)

    I like peanut butter too. But the homemade kind. I’ll have it with toast now and then, but more often, I just have it with a spoon.

    But oddly enough, those are the only two ways I’ll eat it. Me no likey PB cookies, PB ice cream, PB chocolates …

    Oh, I almost forgot. There’s a third way I’ll eat it. My mom makes the best kare kare, which is a Filipino dish that resembles a classic African peanut stew. I know that probably sounds gross to you, but it’s yummy!

    Hmm. Haven’t had it in a while though. Why did I have to go make myself hungry so early in the morning?

  13. leejolem Says:

    Ivory, I make a coconut/pb thai chicken recipe that is too die for. I know this isn’t the food thread, but I had to add this. So good to hear from you again Ivory!!! I’ve actually tasted an African PB stew in high school. OUr church hosted a missionary family from Africa and the mom made it. It was yummy.

  14. ivoryhut Says:

    Ooh, thanks for reminding me, Lee! Make that a fourth way I like PB – in satay!

    Yeah, I can see how our threads are all leading to food …

    So glad to be back online too, Lee!
