Not Peanut Butter Jelly Time

It is with a heavy heart that I inform you all it is no longer peanut butter jelly time. Feel free to set your watches to simply "Jelly Time", if it makes you feel any better.

In the event you only read this blog to stay informed, here's the bad news. The AP is reporting that:
People should avoid eating cookies, ice cream and similar products that contain peanut butter until the government knows more about possible salmonella contamination. But there is no indication that major brands of peanut butter sold in stores are a problem.

All of us are obviously broken up about this, and want to celebrate peanut butter again, as soon as it's safe. The FDA is monitoring the situation and will update the public with the latest news on its website.

In the meantime, I would like to invite you all to share your thoughts and/or concerns in the comment section. Let this be a community where we can share our feelings over the situation and find support.

That is all for now.

Peanut butter and jelly is like one of those binary bombs in the action movies where the two liquids mix and the kitchen timer starts counting down. It just doesn't work with one ingredient alone.

I have a jar or two stockpiled. I bet I could sell it on eBay for $100 to peanut butter addicts. Unfortunately I'm a peanut butter addict. Now I'm off to buy a shotgun to defend my peanutty property.

Now is the time when great men get off their asses and make it themselves. Homemade peanut butter
