smack

i found a new favorite peanut butter! this comes after ruining the last container i had. i decided i would like it super thick, and strained off the few tbsp of oil on top of the natural pb i had. it is practically unusable. i think i’ll save it, and mix it with almond milk to make sauces. but as peanut butter, it’s a failure.

i picked up a jar of really fancy natural peanut butter, and then saw the store brand.

it looked pretty good… and it was a bigger jar. win-win. the ingredients sold me. the standard, well-known kid/”moms love” brands had extra sugar and extra oil.

i opened it this morning to stir it up and try it on my oatmeal. i LOVE the consistency. it’s creamy, but it has… kind of, pulverized peanuts throughout. no big chunks. but it feels like peanuts on my tongue. i know i sound crazy. but it really is the best pb consistency i’ve ever met. store brand, i love you. (thanks, fran, for the reminder.)

oats this morning were delightful, as well. i’ve been on an overnight oats, greek yogurt + almond milk, kick recently. but a warm bowl of oatmeal sounded good today.

in the mix:

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 banana (it was pretty small, so i added some stevia)
  • salt & vanilla extract
  • 2 egg whites whipped in near the end of cooking
  • and a tbsp of my new pb

perfect!

and now i’m off to the hunger games. the movie, not the games.

  1. I’ve never tried that version of SR PB. Sounds wonderful. I’ve been trying not to buy PB because I keep eating it with a spoon! I can’t help it! But when I feel stronger, I will buy this from Your recommendation! Can’t wait to hear about the movie!!! Jealous!!

    • it is a problem about having peanut butter on the house… hopefully I just keep using it to top things and keep my fingers out of the jar.

      the movie was good. nothing is ever as good as books I love. but it was good. if you don’t con someone else to go with you like I did to EP, I’d be happy to go see it with you!
