Futters Butters!

I’m experimenting once more with a variety of nut butters. Having much more success this go-around than I did back when my older son was a baby and I was being “safe” by abstaining from peanut products while nursing him; I must have gotten a brand that didn’t suit me or something, because it left a bad taste in my mouth (figuratively, literally, etc.) and I never went back.

This time around, though, I am loving my almond butter. Maranatha brand, for the win!

I do wish, though, that I had a greater variety of butters available to me locally. I don’t often order foods online without being completely convinced, without any doubt, that I’m going to love what I get, and since I had that bad experience, I’m a bit wary; I’d much rather get a small jar to sample, then move on to larger amounts, but that’s not as cost-effective when it comes to mail order. Enthusiastic endorsements from other folks – real people, not paid ads – go a long way toward making me feel more confident.

“Free” also works wonders. 😉

Clare, then, is speaking my language! Maybe she’s speaking yours, too? She’s hosting a giveaway for a nut butter company that’s…well, hey! Looks like I could actually get their products in person without driving too far! Maybe if I win, and the sample hooks me, I’ll be making a few extra car trips a month…

Anyway, go comment, but if you click through to there from here and you win, I want to hear your opinion, too!

Bulgur and Veggies with ABU

My parents are visiting starting tomorrow, and in anticipation of their visit, I may have gone a bit overboard in grocery shopping. My fridge’s produce bins were full to the point of overflowing. I needed to do something fast! Bulgur and veggies
Yep, that’ll do the trick.

Iron Cupcake!

Oh, now this is just cool. Cupcake baking contests? In my neck of the woods?! Sign me up!

Well, eventually. 😉 Sadly, the next competition (Challenge: Booze!) falls on the first night of Sam’s Bible school. Oh, well; July will come. I don’t know how innovative a baker I can be, compared to some of these guys, though; seriously, I am now dying to try the Jalapeno Popper cupcakes!
