My Time to Share

Good morning friends!!  I hope that you had a nice weekend. Today I am having my first ever giveaway – not sure what took me so long?  The goodies that I am offering to you all – 2 jars of Peanut Butter.  Not just any PB, but PB & Company PB.

I decided to share my two favorite flavors with one lucky reader – Mighty Maple and The Bees Knees. They both are fabulous!

Here is all you have to do:

Leave a comment on this post telling me What is your favorite way to enjoy peanut butter? Easy right? If you are a fellow blogger you can earn an extra entry by linking back to this post – make sure you let me know if you do. 

You have until tomorrow morning to enter. I am going to let D draw the winner at breakfast.

Back to the normal routine.  I went to the gym this morning – no running for this mama today.  I did 50 minutes on the Elliptical and then moved into the weight room. I really enjoy adding some of the exercises that I learned from the Shred DVD – gotta mix it up now and then. I did some foam rolling when I was finished – stretching = happy body. 

Breakfast this morning was a yummy bowl of protein oats.

I did the stovetop method again but added a scoop of rice protein powder during the cooking process.  I think that I was able to add a lot of extra water due to the addition of the powder. This bowl was a whopper.  I topped it with a banana and it was darn tasty.

So the AC in my truck seems to not be working properly. I must get that fixed as they are predicting 90 degrees tomorrow.  I never thought that it would be this warm in April.  That is my mission today – I am not sure at how successful I will be.  The dealer that I bought the truck from is usually great about getting me in and out of there so lets hope that will be the case today.  I also need to go to the grocery store.  Lots to do so I am off to tackle this Monday.  Have a great one. 

My favorite way to eat PB is on a banana. That is combo that I will never get sick of.

 THE CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED

My favourite way to enjoy peanut butter is to spread it, old-fashioned style, on a piece of untoasted whole wheat bread! MMmm! Thanks for hosting this Sammie!

FoodsThatFit said...

My favorite way to enjoy pb is to stuff it inside a medjool date. SO good!

Erica said...

AH! This is the greatest contest maybe ever! I have been wanting to try the Bees Knees so bad! My favorite way to enjoy PB- with an apple!!! Just the best combo! I linked back on my blog!

Michelle said...

My favorite way to eat peanut butter is something you taught me: in a "mess"! I use greek yogurt w/ lots of cinnamon mixed in, topped with Kashi GoLean cereal, cinnamon Puffins and peanut butter drizzled across the top. Sometimes I also drizzle some apple butter or raspberry preserves, or throw some fruit in as well. Thanks for the opportunity to try some new PB!

Sally said...

I love to eat peanut butter in my hot oatmeal so it gets all melty and delicious...with a sliced banana, of course!

Sarah (lovINmytummy) said...

Strangely, my favorite way to enjoy PB is on top of a cereal mess. Now where would I have picked up such odd behavior? ;)

Hope you and D enjoy your Monday!

Holly said...

I like peanut butter and banana!! YUM!

A said...

I love Ants on a Log--reminds me of my childhood--I spread a nice, THICK layer of PB on a celery stick and top it with raisins...healthy and delicious!

Haleigh said...

Great giveaway! I love PB&Co Peanut Butter! My favorite way to enjoy peanut butter is to add a spoonful to a yogurt/muesli mix, and of course.. I also love PB straight from the jar :)

molly said...

I am with you... PB on a banana! I am a Boston girl too, and I cannot believe it will be 90 tomorrow! I am going to have to get my run in early!

Kelsey said...

TJs with flax PB is super uper uper fantastical!!! BUT how could anyone resist a PB with the name like "THE BEES KNEES"!! SO FUN!!

kelsey said...

OH- and I enjoy the TJs PB by putting it on a spoon + licking it off -- OR -- smothering it all over my dogs mouth + watching her lick it out.. It never gets old + she likes it -- I swear!!

HeatherBakes said...

Cool giveaway! My favorite way to enjoy PB is either in oatmeal or on top of an apple... though when I was a kid, we used to eat PB & pickle sandwiches. Seriously.

I enjoy peanut butter with baked tofu and sliced bananas in pita bread. Yum-o! And with melted chocolate of course :)

Jessica said...

I love to mix a spoonful or so really well into greek yogurt and use it as a dip for apple slices. Also great- PB, shredded carrot and raisin sandwich.

Lindsay said...

Peanut butter and banana sandwiches, on celery, by the spoonful! Great first giveaway...and they are the flavors not available to me so that works out great!!!

Arianna said...

I'm usually a lurker, but peanut butter was enough to de-lurk me! I have to agree: pb and banana is a match made in heaven. And throw a little chocolate in there if it's a special occasion? Amazing.

Meredith said...

Ahh!! I have been wanting to try Bees Knees for so long and they don't have it anywhere around where I live.

My favorite way to eat peanut butter is on a toasted Kashi waffle with strawberries on top. Mighty Maple is delish this way :)

Thanks for the email, my sweet Sammie. xoxo

I am entering for my Abbi. She is a LOVER of peanut butter and prefers it with strawberry jam on her sandwiches, but also LOVES it in a banana shake made with vanilla ice cream. PB BANANA shakes are D and A's special treat. I cannot imagine how amazing it will be with maple mixed with that pb!!

AWESOME first contest!! Love you! XOXO
