Honey Roasted Peanut Butter

The fresh Honey Roasted Peanut Butter from Whole Foods is awesome. It’s not something available everyday, they make it fresh at the store. I used to get the small container before, when they had it; today, when I saw that there were only 2 boxes left, I took one of the big containers without blinking an eye.

I spent this evening at my linguistics professor’s Janet’s house, we had an end-of-year BBQ for the linguistics students. After I got home, I found out that my lovely container of peanut butter got sqooshed in my backpack, but thankfully my bag is unharmed because the peanut buffer was inside a plastic bag. For 5 minutes, for the love of peanut butter, I salvaged all that I can out of that plastic bag and back into the container.

This peanut butter is that good. Every scoop is worth the effort.

Here’s evidence from some other people:

“Honey Roasted Peanut Butter”がお薦めなのだそうです。

The honey roasted peanut butter that comes out of the machine at Whole Foods is [...] heavenly.

I also discovered the best peanut butter at WHole Foods–freshly ground honey roasted peanut butter–which when smothered on a banana is soooooooooooooo tasty.

My favorite way of eating this tastiness is spreading it on slices of green Granny Smith apples. I once tried it with strawberries, it didn’t work as well as it did with apples. The Japanese page above says that it’s possible to make the same peanut butter at home and it’s cheaper. I’m gonna investigate into it, cuz I’m starting to get addicted to this stuff…. yum….

I’m going out to lunch tomorrow with my new Japanese friend (from Nagoya 名古屋)Takushi and this Korean girl Soogee, who are both here in Boston to take English language classes. Soogee said she’ll bring along this other Japanese girl from her language school, Keiko. We planned on having sushi at this place Nori in Coolidge Corner, but I just had sushi last night at Sushi Express, so maybe I can find somewhere else appropriate.

While planning for tomorrow on the phone tonight, I told Takushi that I met Soogee by chance at Harvard Sq this afternoon. On a whim, I used the word わざわざ (wazawaza), but it didn’t feel right so I came home and looked it up on the net. It means “intentionally”. The exact opposite of what I wanted to say.

The correct word is 偶然 (ぐうぜん, guuzen), which is a word I already knew. It’s not even difficult, because I know the exact Chinese cognate for it.

Moments like this that makes me want to give up (learning Japanese), it’s too embarrassing….
