Creamy Peanut Chicken Stew

What else can you do with a jar of peanut butter?

Recently, I attended a talk on Generation Y. Contrary to what the media portray Generation Y to be (i.e. spoilt brat, wasteful..etc), the seminar spoke about how we are shaped by our environment and Gen Y shouldn't be pointed out as "impatient/selfish ones".

For instance, if you are born in born as part of Generation Y, you probably would have chuck the jar of peanut butter when u r done with it.

BUT, your grandmother/grandfather, would probably pick the jar up, scrap ALL the peanut butter out (like at least 3 more spreads) and then.....

wash the jar out to use it as a container/vase/cup...

Is it because they are environmentally friendly?

Maybe.. but most likely it's because as they were growing up, it was war time! And you HAVE to learn to be careful with what you have during war time. The Y-generations however, were brought up in a disposable culture-hence their behaviours were shaped by their environment. Same thing as why Gen Ys are more tech savy than the baby boomers or builders.

As for me.... well, I'm definately scrapping the end of my jar to make this creamy stew!
