Wednesday! Halfway through the week.And all the way up the hills. I tackled this beauty seven times in a row. It wasn’t as steep as last week’s hill, but it was long! I don’t know what’s worse — short steep hills or long gradual ones? I make sure to torture myself with both just to be safe Definitely felt the burn in the ol’ hamstrings by the last one. Wish I could have rode this mighty toddler truck I spotted instead!It was nice and brisk out today — not too cold, actually. I do love the humid green mornings of summer, but I have to say I’ve grown really fond of the spindly winter trees. Don’t they look so enchanting with all their twiggy twists and turns?And now it’s time for the most random change of topics ever:
Have you guys ever tried Justin’s peanut butter? I’ve heard about how amazing it is, but never had the guts to pay $10-15 for a single little jar of it. BUT, I saw it was on sale the other day and thought: It’s time.
Like any normal person would do, I decided to unveil the new product by having a peanut butter taste-off. Anthony and I put our favorite Whole Foods 365 brand peanut butter (about $5 for a much larger jar) head to head with Justin’s. Not sure what my Italian tea towel has to do with peanut butter, but I thought the colors were pretty so I went for it.Before we even scooped the peanut butter out, we could tell that Justin’s had a more even consistency — not as separated with oil and salt as 365 is. To taste them, we spread them atop slices of banana bread. And then ate some straight from the jar for good measure The winner: Whole Foods! Though we loved the consistency of Justin’s, we thought that its flavor was slightly less delicious than 365. Justin’s has a wonderful peanut-y taste — but more like bland peanuts than roasted/salted peanuts. Know what I mean?
Mystery solved. Now I’m going to have to try Justin’s “chocolate almond butter” next…!
