Thanks for the link to homemade sunflower seed butter, creative. I'll pass that on to my daughter - she has a family of 5 and would be more inclined to use it up than I would with just me.

MsM, I just added the TJ's peanut butter with flax and chia to my list.

I never could stand peanut butter, even as a kid. I never had a dog that didn't adore it though.

I LOVE the disclaimer on the Trader Joe site

Trader Joe’s Crunchy Salted Peanut Butter with Flax and Chia Seeds. It’ll only cost you $2.99 for the 16-ounce jar. We’ve yet to put a price on the nutritional benefits, but that would probably mean it would be too expensive to sell in our stores.

NOTE: Since posting, the details of this item may have changed due to fluctuating market prices, federal regulations, currency rates, drought, pestilence, bandits, rush hour traffic, filibusters, clowns, zombie apocalypse, punctilious product developers... Contact our Crew for current price and availability.

Ingredients


Roasted Peanuts, Chia Seeds, Flax Seeds, Sea Salt. CONTAINS PEANUTS.

Ha...some people dislike peanut butter because it can stick to the roof of your mouth. It looks fairly tame in this respect compared to tahini though!!

I have had cats that love peanut butter.

I agree with you, Creative, that the chip butty was a poor choice for the UK. Could they not have jizzed it up a bit? The London offering was definitely better, but I hadn't heard of a pork roast roll as a sandwich filling before.

Someone mentioned Jif as an alternative to peanut butter, or was it jelly? Anyway, that was the name of a cleaning product here, until EU rules changed it to Cif! Actually, I think it's also a lemon juice thing.

There was also mention of sourdough bread. I've never seen that, apart from the gluten free version which my coeliac daughter loves. Unfortunately it has been discontinued at the supermarket where we used to get it.

I can't do with the American way of cooking burgers, placing them between two roll halves and calling that a sandwich. To me, a sandwich is a cold filling between two slices of whatever and is supposed to be a quick and handy snack. Wasn't it named after Lord Sandwich who wanted something quick to eat and didn't have a lot of time to wait for it, so he was given some meat between two slices of bread?

I remember living in a YW hostel in my first two years at university in the late sixties and how a lot of the girls there would make everything they were served up with into a sandwich, no matter what it was. The results were weird sometimes, but to each their own lol.

You have never had a hot roast beef and gravy, hot turkey and gravy, a hot French dip, a hot fish sandwich, a grilled cheese etc

Hope you like it, creative. It will be interesting to see your review after you've had one.

That sounds more like a French dip than an open-faced roast beef sandwich.
