As happy as I am that today is Friday–classes start next week for the summer and I’m dreading it just a little! I really enjoy the time that I have between semesters to do some things I might not normally have time to do: read, more workout time, try new things in the kitchen or just lounge! It seems like once I’m in school mode I don’t have much time to do anything but work and study–hopefully this summer that won’t be the case.
So I started the morning off with some Muesli
It’s the first bag that I’ve ever tried and I’m LOVING it! I usually don’t have toast in the morning–I’m pretty much a cereal kinda gal. Anyway, I had a piece of toast this morning with my cereal because I wanted to try the HOMEMADE almond butter I made the other day, that’s right, HOMEMADE! It’s actually very easy to make but I’m still proud of myself! 🙂
I spread about 1 cup full of almonds on a cooking sheet and baked for 12-20 min. at 400
Put them in my magic bullet (love that thing) and added EVOO as needed. Just kept grinding until it got the the consistency that I like, which is creamy with a little bit of chunk! Mmmm
Once I scooped it all out I added a bit of honey, put it in some tupperware and stuck it in the fridge!
I enjoyed making it and I really want to try some others…maybe I’ll try cashew butter next!
