I made this dish early this summer for my father’s birthday. A casserole during summer season?

Peanut Butter Popcorn & Oatmeal Cookies: 10 Peanut Butter Treats for Fall Recipe Roundup Nutty, creamy (or chunky!) peanut butter is associated with fall lunch boxes, and with classic autumn treats like thick, chewy peanut butter cookies. I grew up in a family that always had a jumbo-sized jar of natural peanut butter in the fridge ( do you refrigerate peanut butter? ), and the quintessential movie night snack was peanut butter popcorn.
Peanut butter and jelly never gets old. My fondness for this classic combo has only grown stronger since my days of pulling crustless peanut butter and jelly sandwiches from my Care Bears lunch box. These baked pockets give us just the slightest twist on the classic. All the great peanut flavor and sticky jam, but made ahead (and frozen!) for easy lunches through the week.
