Pumpkin Spiced Almond Butter…finally!
I had an amazing Christmas. Santa spoiled me with lots of kitchen goodies, stuff for my room, fuzzy socks that are super warm, a PIZZA stone (YAY!) and last but not least, a Nintendo Wii!!
Actually, my grandparents in Ohio mailed us the Wii. Aren’t they the coolest grandparents EVER? Ever since the Wii came out I’ve been playing it at my friend’s homes and wishing I had one! It was such an awesome surprise to now have one as our own!
We have Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort but my favorite game by far is Super Mario Bros. Wii.
I’ve spent most of my Winter Break playing Wii, haha!
I won Mary’s giveaway and she sent me an adorable mug and some homemade treats!
I love the mug, it’s exactly what I would pick out for myself at the store and the cookies and peppermint bark were the best I’ve ever had!
The mug has come in handy and is getting lots of use!
For breakfast today I had Kashi Heart to Heart cinnamon cereal with Fiber One and frozen blueberries!
And the other day the glorious mug held my green monster!
The almond butter is AH-MAZING! You MUST go and make it! I was a little worried that the Vitamix wouldn’t be able to work with 2 cups of almonds but it was mostly fine. The Vitamix would get overheated, so I had to wait 1o minutes, let it cool down. But in the end, all was well!
It makes a lot, so store in the fridge. And it only gets better with time, the longer the flavors have to meld together…the more flavorful it gets!
True, it is a piece of work to make, but it is oh-so worth it!
