Extra Peanut Butter

I used 1 tablespoon of peanut butter in some sweet potato soup, and now I have the remains of the whole jar left over. Besides cookies and peanut butter bread, what are some ways to use up the leftover peanut butter?

  1. If it is smooth peanut butter, it can be used to make hummus instead of tahini.

    1. Satay Peanut Sauce. This is the only reason I have any peanut butter on my shelves.

          It's also an entertaining way to get meds into a DOG!?! Last dog has "summer allergies". Once whether turned nice, she'd lay out in back yard for hours, rolling in grass. She'd develop itchy spots and do a lot of scratching/chewing. Vet said... $$ for allergy testing and possible steriods (NOT her recommendation, surprisingly). Said try Benadryl... same dose as for adult HUMAN... she was a 90 lb Dobie. I'd put 2 pills in a nice blob of PB on a soft spatula and stick it to the roof of her mouth. Knew she like ti cuz that little stub of a tail wagged like crazy & it was about impossible NOT to laugh as she tried to get it off roof of mouth.

            I use to feed pills to my cat by wrapping them in braunschweiger. They went down very easy.

        2. Funny, I've never had extra peanut butter (for long, that is). Eat from jar, spread on toasted wholegrain bread, put into satay sauces, eat w/an apple or banana. If you really hate it and no one in the household will eat it, birds and squirrels love it (especially in cold climates for energy).
