Morning! I’ve been up since dark o’clock:
The 5:30 spin class is a struggle to get to, but once you’re there you can totally zone out for a solid 20 minutes. Then spend the next 25 minutes thinking about breakfast
Made it home just as the sun came up! I was all about eggs and cereal the past few weeks but the past few days I’ve been craving oats.
That’s a dollop of Anthony’s homemade peanut butter on the side! He made a few fresh batches using our juicer over the weekend.
Not sure if anyone is a Consumer Reports subscriber but they recently did a study on the best store-bought nut butters which I found fascinating. I know there are major world events and an upcoming election to think about, but issues like nut butter quality need our attention too 😉
Like I said, we make our own PB — but I’d be curious to try some of these other butters just for fun! Cashew butter?!
While we’re talking about butter — that was one of the main ingredients in the pan sauce for this Cook Smarts recipe we made the other night! I’m not complaining. Despite the yummy butter/white wine/shallot sauce, I’d still put this recipe in the healthy category. Look at all of those colors!
Pork chops stuffed with Gorgonzola, chives, and apples. And before you leave a comment about pregnant people and soft cheeses, don’t worry — I triple-checked to make sure it was pasteurized
Green beans and cumin carrots on the side! Yum. After a series of one-pot meals lately, this “meat and two” was a nice change.
What have you got going on today? I’m off to work and then headed out for taco Tuesday. Going to be a good day.
- Favorite type of nut butter? Favorite brand? When I do buy PB at the store, I like Whole Foods 365 brand.
- Do you subscribe to any magazines? I used to read RedBook but thought it got boring. Now I only read Consumer Reports. Though I’d love to re-subscribe to Cook’s Illustrated!
- Spin class – yay or nay? I couldn’t do it every day but once or twice a week is fun.
