I hate those evenings when I go home tired but that’s about it, and then the hubs asks about my day and by the time I’m done...
Cutest e-mail ever alert: “I’m sorry, I don’t know how to do what you’re asking, but I’ll wait till next week when my grandkid comes for Christmas.”
My car is now in hospice care. I’m not doing anything to prolong its life, and I’m just going to make it as comfortable as possible. We’re going to...
I love it. It’s been a standby of mine since forever. As a kid, the only sandwich I would eat was peanut butter, no jelly. (Seriously, I didn’t eat any lunch meat ever until high school, and even then it was only when there was no way for me to get a peanut butter sandwich.)
My sandwich habits have branched out (nothing more delicious than spicy cured meat and ridiculously sharp cheese), but peanut butter remains a staple. And tonight I made my own!
Easiest thing ever. In food processor, 2 cups of roasted unsalted peanuts and 2 tablespoons of oil. Peanut oil was ridiculously expensive, so I got grapeseed oil instead and it worked out great. I added a heaping tablespoon-ish of brown sugar and about 2 tsp of sea salt, but you could obviously do whatever you wanted. Next time I’m going to blend in some cinnamon and sugar, I think. Honey would be lovely. My current mix is delicious, though—slightly sweet with a hint of salt.
I don’t think it’s any cheaper than buying pre-made stuff—a jar of peanuts costs about the same as a jar of peanut butter. It’s probably at least marginally healthier, though. And tinkering with the taste is fun.
