I go through phases with Pandora – I’ll listen to it every day for a week and then get tired of it slowing down my computer or being open in a browser tab and take a month hiatus. Today I have it ON and I am loving all of the songs pumping out of my Josh Groban station! I have been singing all night!
Today was a good mail day!
I got a birthday card from my Grandma Younger and two fun packages. The first, some delicious looking plum jam from BethT! Can’t wait to dig into this when my current raspberry runs out 🙂 Thanks Beth!
And then…I went nutz!
I received a sample of this Nuttzo nut butter from Open Sky to test out for the KERF shop. It’s a blend of Valencia peanuts, cashews, almonds, brazil nuts, hazelnuts and sunflower seeds, all roasted and still chunky.
At first taste, [straight from the jar!] I wasn’t totally sold. The information sheet that came with it said it retails for about $12.50 per jar. Dang! The taste reminded me of Naturally Nutty and Naturally More. I thought it could use a wee bit of sugar 😉
And THEN the crunch started to happen. This butter is FILLED with flax seeds and crunchy chunks of all kinds of nuts and seeds. I am a big crunchy PB fan, so I liked it more with each bite. Yeah, I probably had 2-3 TBSP worth!?
Served on a bernaner
I finally passed the jar off to Matt and said “try this. And don’t let me have any more.” He loved it as well and ate a good bit. He agreed that it just got better and better [texture!] Then Karen stopped by and ate a big dollop – another fan! So now 1/3 of the jar is gone.
It will be appearing in the KERF Shop soon!!! I will let you know when 🙂
Until then, the guys at Open Sky have given me the go-ahead to share a 10% discount code for everything in the store. Just type in KATH at checkout 🙂
Dinner tonight was a frittata!
We sautéed green peppers, spinach and pimentos, added 4 eggins, and 3 small slices of leftover Bald Head cheese and broiled for a few minutes.
Served with lightly buttered Honey Whole Wheat toast from Great Harvest.
Two hours later, I’m still up studying (and fighting bugs!!!!). I felt a slow build of hunger – and needed some carbs! When I do a long and/or particularly hard workout, I definitely feel myself craving carbs in the evenings. And I have some. No sense putting my body through hell!
I broke into a new box of cereal – Oatios by New Morning – that was sent to me a while back. I combined that with about 1/3 a cup of the last of my Erewhon Raisin bran (where were the raisins!?)
The Oatios were kinda eh. A little too airy (I think Cheerios are denser?). I did go back for a small bowl of seconds though! Gotta finish that milk 😉

If you’ll excuse me, I have some Celine Dion to sing!
