HAPPY MONDAY! Wow these weekends just fly by–I wish that’s how the work week felt! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! The weather here was so beautiful, I didn’t want to waste any time inside and really tried not to!
Yesterday something VERY strange happened to me…I slept till 9! I’m a creature of habit and wake up very very early for work every day (early being 4:30) so on the weekend, like clockwork my eyes open around 6:30 7ish–it’s like impossible for me to sleep longer than that! But somehow I slept till 9 yesterday, I literally didn’t move all night and I think it was definitely needed!
So last night I made some more Almond Butter! I love making it–it’s so easy and fun to make and I can’t get enough of it.
I started by putting them all on a baking sheet and raosting them for 30 min. @ 300 degrees
I just love the way this makes the house smell! 🙂
Once this is done I stick them in my Magic Bullet and start blending away!
I blend them until they’re finely ground and then add a bit of EVOO until I’ve reached the smootheness I’m looking for.
Sorry it’s a bit blurry
Once I have it to just the right texture, I put it in a little tupperware and mix in some honey to give it a little more flavor!
And Voila–Almond Butter! Once I’m done I just stick it in the fridge until I’m ready to use it!
So I’m doing a little experimenting this week–No Coffee! I had a little “episode” last week when I came into work and there were no coffee cups to be found! I wasn’t to happy with the way my body reacted to it and thought I would see if I could go a week without. So far so good! I had a delicious Earl Grey Black Tea this morning and I think I just might be able to do this!
Do you drink coffee? Is it something you “need” in the morning to get you going? Who wants to join me for a coffee free week? 🙂
