The other day I was making my favorites quick lunch of whole grain bread with nut butter, honey and sprinkled with cinnamon when I realized I was out of nut butter. I usually buy the almond butter from TJ's. It occurred to me, why have I not been making my own in my dear Vita Mix? So I did. I only had raw pecans, so I used them. I also threw in some vanilla and cinnamon. So good! I will be making my own nut butters from now on. It is so much less expensive too. Some nut butters are like 10.00 a jar and if they have vanilla or some other flavor, even more. Way cheaper to do it yourself.
During my shopping trip yesterday I stopped at the Asia food mart and grabbed a case of young coconuts. While I was there I noticed durian in the freezer section. I didn't get any but I think I will try it next time. Have you tried Durian? I know Bitt has.... she even made a durian moonie pie! I did find gogi berries there for 10.00 a pound and bought some of those.
