Ode To The Nutter Butter (Confessional #5: I Love Peanut Butter)

I was at Bouchon the other day to get some coffee, and I decided to help myself to a snack. Why are all good things made of carbs? Well I guess bacon doesn't have carbs, but everything else good in the world seems to.

Anyway, as I was looking at the display case, my eyes fixated on the Bouchon Nutter Butter. If I have a weakness in desserts, it's peanut butter. I think it's because if my palate tends towards sweet or salty, I definitely have a salty one. And peanut butter always has the right amount of saltiness to counteract any coying sweetness.

OMG, the Bouchon Nutter Butter was the best thing I've ever tasted in a while. Two sweet cakey discs of oatmeal goodness with this gooey, creamy, peanut-y filling.

Oh Nutter Butter
It is you who I pick
With peanuts spread so thick
Slathered in between
Two cookies that I could lick
It is you who I will eat alive or dead
Give me no substitute
No copycat from elves
Keebler or else
Just give me the original
And put me to bed.

Oh my! You get your coffee from Bouchon?!?!?! How decadent!!

My favorite midnight snack is a peanut butter sandwich with a fried egg in it. A east-meet-west version of peanut butter sandwich. :-)
