Happy Saturday my peoples! It was so good to hear all of your random confessions from yesterday’s post! Nice to know I’m not the only OCD/quirky chick out there! Oh, and remember how I said I was feeling drowsy from my chamomile tea? Ha, how about I woke up at 5am on the couch with my laptop beside me!
Today was a gloomy, cold, and rainy day. I always tend to forget that Tennessee doesn’t really have seasons. It goes a little something like this:
HOT as Hades (Summer)
And yeah, we don’t usually get a Fall 🙁
I woke up this morning and knew today would be the perfect day finally try Ashley’s Coconut Cream Blueberry Buckwheat Bake. I whipped it up according to her directions, popped it in the oven, and went to get my sweat on with J Dub (yeah, we’re tight like that now!) before I had a chance to let the gloominess of the day make a lazy bum out of me!
Oh my goodness! It was even better than I imagined! The coconut cream “surprise” on the inside is out of this world! Creamy, chewy, warm, and delicious!
What’s that blob of stuff on top you ask? Well that’s just my butter toffee almond coconut butter! Such a cinch to make…I broke out with a little Sandra Lee on this one, if you will.
- 1 cup butter toffee almonds (made by Blue Diamond)
- 2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut butter
1. Throw in a food processor and blend, scrape, blend, scrape, etc until smooth and creamy!
2. Scoop your newly discovered favorite nut butter into a jar and proceed to lick the bowl of the food processor. Don’t worry, we won’t judge! 😉
I feel pretty ridic posting this as a recipe, but hey I’ve seen worse…anyone seen Ellie Krieger’s Dark Chocolate as a Snack recipe? Food Network actually took it off the site so I had to search it out. View the super complex recipe here and check out some hilarious reviews here.
The rest of my day was SUPER busy with cleaning, cleaning, more cleaning, and a some more of my secret squirrel activities! Hopefully I will be able to share some great news with you guys on Monday!
What’s in a salad?
- collard greens
- mini sweet peppers
- button mushrooms
- roasted broccoli & cauliflower sprinkled with turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon
- roasted tomatoes
- 1 fried egg
- TJ’s masala veggie burg, crumbled
Mmm, spicy breakfast meets crunchy salad! I love pairing this veggie burg with eggs. I swear it taste just like a spicy hashbrown!
Well, I’m off! Gonna try not to pass out in the floor from drinking more tea! 😉 Have a good night lovelies! I’ll “see” you tomorrow for Pancake Sunday!
What is your favorite way to eat almond butter? What’s your favorite flavor?
Definitely on top of oats! (duh) and my favorite is Justin’s Maple Almond Butter followed oh so closely my MaraNatha’s Dark Chocolate Almond Butter
