So, the stars aligned last night and two things simultaneously occurred in odd synchronicity:
1. I finished up my last batch of impromptu, not-as-good-as-the-original-but-it’s-homemade-nut-butter-so-of-course-it’s-still-awesome Nutty Butter while watching the Parenthood finale on DVR. (Yes, I was eating it with a spoon. Well, actually a chopstick. But that’s a food blogger confessional for another day.)
Well, obviously my favorite fats are the monounsaturated kind that help your heart and promote general awesomeness. And in my opinion, the best way to get those good fats into your body is in the form of delicious, creamy, tastes-great-on-everything* nut butter.
*I’m not kidding. My mom used to eat peanut butter and tomato sandwiches.
Peanut butter. Almond butter. Cashew butter. Maple almond butter. Honey almond butter. Honey peanut butter. Peanut almond butter. Chocolate peanut butter. Chocolate almond butter. Seriously, y’all, is there a bad combination? [OK. Maybe if I tried to pop sardines into the processor with my Nutty Butter, we'd have an issue...but perhaps not. The Omega-3 lobbyists would certainly be supportive of this endeavor.]
Now, I know I’m moving in two weeks (two weeks!), and that I really should not be acquiring more food…but how can I survive even two DAYS without some sort of nut butter?
And, clearly, I had to help Katie in her fight for us all to embrace good, healthy fat into our lives.
So to the bulk bins at Whole Foods I went…and a new batch of Nutty Butter I created!
[If you click on the link, you can see the original recipe. I'm working on perfecting it, however, so the latest and greatest concoctions must remain a mystery...]
And then…well, then I hugged my favorite fat(s)….why hug just one fat, when you can hug so many at once?
…and why just hug the fat when you could KISS it?
And gosh, I guess you might as well EAT some of it too…
And oh my goll, y’all…then you might as well DANCE with it!
I don’t know about you, but I think Dancing With The Fats is going to be the next big reality TV show.
