Episode 130: Meal Planning Check In, Peanut Butter, Picky Eaters

Marisa’s own homemade natural peanut butter

Here’s that New York Times article and recipe concerning out of season tomatoes. It puts forward the idea that local and seasonal is dead. We don’t think so, but we love slow roasted tomatoes just the same.

Marisa and Joy confess that their 2016 meal planning and vegetable consumption has been far from perfect.

Everybody loves peanut butter and neither Joy nor Marisa is any exception. Both favor the “natural” types, sugar free, over the big brand varieties.

We talk about cooking for picky eaters and how we hide things from them.

It’s mid winter, and few vegetables are in season. Sunchokes are among them, and that’s what we talked about this week.

  1. I’m listening to your podcast on peanut butter & I thought of a solution to not getting all the nut butter out of Vitamix. Make a smoothie right after & residual nut butter will incorporate into the smoothie. You’ve inspired me to try making nut butters. I live south of Chicago & still enjoy your broadcasts & love your canning recipes Marissa, especially tomato jams! I do get jealous that I can’t try the places you talk about.

  2. I am with you guys on the natural nut butters. I grew up on Skippy, but I can’t go back. A must for me in peanut butter is salt, though. And I’m creamy all the way like Marisa.

    I tried a curried sunchoke soup and it was really underwhelming. Thanks for the reminder to give it another go!
