Bucket of Happiness's arrived.  I love it.  It makes me smile when I walk past it.  See, I even gave it a hug with my feet.  (what?)

Well, actually my foot was just in the picture to give you a sense of scale. LOL.  See, I wanted you to be able to really feel just how big the bucket is.  I wanted to take the picture with one of my little cuties sitting next to the bucket, but alas....they are all upstairs snuggled in the big bed listening to the Magic Tree House books on CD.  We have had a visitor off and on this past week, called the stomach flu.  Not fun.  Even less fun when you have no washing machine, but yet we have made it through alright.  (only one more boy to go?)  Anyway...I can't wait until we are all well enough to actually open the bucket.  Because, it just wouldn't be fair to open it if you couldn't actually eat what's inside right?
In case you really can't see it, it says, Organic Peanut Butter.  35lbs. of it.  A 5 gallon pal.  A bucket of happiness.  

Now, what should I make with all this?  And where are all my canning jars? (i will have to refrigerate it after opening right?)  Perhaps I didn't think this through......

If you have a favorite peanut butter recipe that we just have to try...please leave a comment for me!  I don't have a kitchen just now....but chances are we will still have peanut butter when the kitchen is finished. ;)

*editorial note :  I figured out how much money this has saved us.  $47.  I actually paid less for this per ounce than I would at the grocery store for non-organic natural peanut butter.  How long do I expect it to last us?  About 6 months.  And just think about all those jars I didn't have to now i have a nice big bucket for carrying chicken feed..... ha ha. :)


  1. that is a lot of pb! did you get a giant tub of jam too??? ;)

  2. ooooo! a giant tub of jam!?! LOL

    I just have to say that I made enough jam last year to make it through the whole year! And I made it from berries and grapes from our own yard!!!! I still have 4 containers in the freezer. I'm so thankful to be able to feed my children from things that grow right here. What a blessing! :)

  3. Oh my word, that is a LOT of peanut butter! My mom seems to use a lot of it when she makes monster cookies. And if you decide to make cookies, I would be happy to eat some of them.
