Today's smoothie: parsley, frozen fruit blend, bit o'avocado, banana
In our ongoing effort to reduce the amount of waste we recycle or toss (per one of our New Year's resolutions), Jim decided to make our own peanut butter. His first batch was made with some roasted peanuts using a food processor but it didn't quite taste the like organic commercial brand we bought. So he tried again after noticing that the batch he had made was significantly lighter in color than the store bought. He decided to roast the roasted peanuts even more and then tried again. This time, it came out tasting almost exactly like the store bought brand we loved. We store it in the refrigerator in one of those old-fashioned glass containers that they used to give you (for free!) long ago when you bought a refrigerator; these were my grandmother's.
Speaking of which, as my plastic containers break, melt, or just plain go bad, I've decided to replace them with glass instead.
So along with bread, vegan sausage-like products, and cereal (muesli and granola), we now no longer buy peanut butter in a plastic container. Yay!
