El Leon is the meowingest cat ever! You know he has made an entrance when you hear: “meowmeowmeowmeowmeowmeow.” It’s constant and oh-so-charming of him! He must have a lot to say.

I have few words for today’s breakfast, which left me speechless. Just simple pumpkin cottage cheese banana oats (ok, that really isn’t all that simple :mrgreen: ) plus Carrot Raisin Walnut muffin and sunbutter! As in, the REAL Sunbutter – crunchy style! Opensky and I are talking and they sent me a jar. Jury says it’s as good as Trader Joe’s!

Every time I see sunflower butter, I almost buy it but then I get all flustered wondering if I’ll really like it! TJ’s Crunchy PB won this time.

I personally don’t get the love! I read it on sososo many blogs that when I was able to get a free sample of some things I included Sunflower Butter, but months later it is still on my shelf. It’s salty and savory… I would maybe like it mixed in with dressings? But it’s not a peanut butter replacement at all!

completely agree! I bought it thinking I’d love it like everyone else and I just don’t! It’s got a funky taste to me.

Me too! I bought sunflower butter after seeing it on several blogs and I don’t like it either. Part of the problem is that my mind is expecting something slightly sweeter/creamier and sunbutter is so salty and puddle-y. I don’t like the naturally nutty cinnamon vanilla flavor either! I definitely prefer creamy peanut butter.

I LOVE it (not as much as Smucker’s Natural Peanut Butter, though), but the nut butter I don’t like is Almond… I love almonds, but can’t stand AB!

I always buy Sunbutter! It’s pricey but so, so good.

Loud meowing cats? Nothing beats mine after being on a trip and coming home. It’s a non-stop loud meow-fest basically chewing me out for being gone :)

Have a wonderful Saturday! Your oats look lovely!

Finally got on the pumpkin train and made whole wheat pumpkin muffins-yum!!

I really want to try sunflower butter. None of my local shops have any so i will have to look on-line. I am currently eating a pile of sunflower seed sprouts for my lunch which are great :-)

What does red velvet tea taste like? Isn’t red velvet cake just vanilla/chocolate with cream cheese frosting? I wonder what makes the tea red, if it’s beetroot or food coloring?

Think of sweet kitty as one of your blog readers — he can’t comment online so he must comment in person ;) Clearly, he’d like to give pumpkin cottage cheese banana oats a try! Really, who can blame him?? Have a great weekend!

that sunflower butter sounds so good. I love salted roasted sunflowers for a snack, so I am sure I would love sunflower butter but never seen it here in the UK, wonder if you can make it yourself?

42 KathEats October 22, 2011 at 4:40 pm

You can – I think Mamapea or Ashley @ Edible Perspective did?

I read peasandthankyou regulary, don’t remember seeing it there, will go and check edible perspective out, thank you!

Speaking of Trader Joe’s Nut Butter’s, here in the Philly area, I have been to 2 different stores and NO MORE organic peanut butter. I am so sad, it was my favorite brand. Anyone else have a TJ’s still carrying it?
