Ordinary? No, it’s Extraordinary…Peanuts in the Shell!

Every now and then, the little things I see or use every day suddenly appear unique and amazing. Today, it’s peanuts in the shell (or, “out” of the shell for eating!).Not that I don’t love peanuts out of a jar.Or out of a can.But there is something unique about cracking the peanut out of the shell.

I’ve never eaten a burger at Five Guys but I have certainly feasted on their peanuts in the shell. And, what’s more fun than eating peanuts at a baseball game?Staring at one peanut…after I’ve eaten a thousand over the years…got me thinking about how exactly they grow. If you click on this photo, you can learn a bit more about their growth process.Although it was interesting, I’m going to give my perpetual-student mind a break and merely enjoy how cool these little things are. Appreciating something so ordinary in our everyday cuisine is really quite extraordinary.

    My husband will eat peanuts from the shell at every opportunity. Last time we went to Texas Roadhouse he ate so many he had to take most of his meal home as he was too full to eat it!

      Hahahaha! That’s a guy who really loves peanuts! How funny that he was too full for his dinner :).

    Love peanuts out of the shell. I’m even one of those weirdos who eats the shell if the mood strikes me right. 🙂
