So it just occurred to me that my last three (including this one) posts were peanut/nut butter related. Sorry, not sorry. Buuuut if you are so not into nut butters, my sincerest apologies. Otherwise, no regrets. Sweet potato noodles with peanut sauce? Bomb. Creamy crunchy peanut butter bars? Bomb. These almond butter chia cookies? I have no words but I’m making hand motions and nodding my head YESSS. Really really good, you guys.
I used to eat Almond Joys pretty meticulously as a kid. First, I’d bite off the almond. Then, nibble off the chocolate layer. Aaand I’d finish it off savoring the chewy coconut one slow bite at a time. I loved them. Almond Joys were my go-to candy. I mean…
The other day I was walking out of CVS and there were two teenage girls in pajamas. Like full on onsie/flannel/maybe even unicorn pajamas. It got me and I started hysterically laughing. Maybe because it was so unexpected, but that’s what teenage girls do, right? I appreciate their boldness. I wore pajamas randomly (or straight up pillow cases) as a teenager, but you know, everyone’s different.
I remember the first time I ever had a scone. There is this little cafe in the shore town my parents live in and my mom and I popped in for a treat. I was probably 12. There were these beautiful rustic mounds of pastry deliciousness that I’ve never encountered before. But, I saw chocolate chunks and I had to take the chance.
Oh you fancy huh? Ever go to a restaurant and you see an item on the menu and you feel like, um, that’s SO FANCY?!! Just me? Anyway, that’s me with almond crusted tilapia. I’m immediately impressed whenever I hear anything is almond crusted. Like how did they even do that?!
