I have created a Russian Peanut Butter Monster…

I loved this…

My sweetpea loves peanut butter. It was not something she grew up with, so it is special to her. I grew up with peanut butter and jelly as a kid mainstay. Never thought twice about running around with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Not jam, jelly….Welch’s Grape Jelly…

But, Svetochka has fallen in love with…

Peanut butter, real butter and toast…

Svetochka loves this…

Forget the jelly, just toss some butter on first and then after it melts some on the toast. Put a layer of peanut butter on the still warm toast…

Peanut butter has until recently been very expensive and I tried to stay away from the taste treat of peanut butter. But then I noticed, along with the drop in many food items in Russia, that roasted peanuts are dirt cheap and I thought, “What about peanut butter?”

Good question….Maynard…

And I discovered before Christmas in this article below…

Talked about prices dropping and new items several times…

Therefore, I keep a stock of cheap peanut butter now and little Miss Sweetpea likes to eat peanut butter for breakfast and supper/dinner. Breakfast is on toast and dinner is on crackers. It is her new dessert at night and a happy start to the day at breakfast…


Svetochka spent the weekend at her mom’s and she came home a tidbit grouchy. Sveta took a jar of peanut butter, but her mom decided that she did not need it and Sveta did not get any all weekend. But…

Last night she ate several crackers with peanut butter and this morning I made her two whole wheat toasts, with real butter and yummy peanut butter…

Happy girl now…
