Check It. March: National Peanut Month.

March is National Peanut Month, and Dean & Deluca has a package (above) that can help you celebrate. The Peanut Lover's gift basket includes everything from extra-large Virginia peanuts to Cream-Nut Natural Peanut Butter, to peanut brittle. The retro packaging is very cute, making the set a perfect gift for the peanut lover in your life (or for yourself if you're feeling extravagant--it's $45). If this is too fancy, a simple jar of supermarket-bought peanut butter or some Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are also appropriate items to celebrate with.

How about Elvis' favorite fried peanut butter and banana sandwich? You'll need a ripe banana, two slices of white bread, 3 tablespoons of peanut butter, and 2 tablespoons of butter. Toast the bread slightly, spread the (mashed or slices of) banana on one side, and peanut butter on the other. Fry the sandwich in melted butter until golden brown. Serve hot and sliced diagonally. Enjoy!
