Go Nuts!

Only one ingredient. Unsalted dry roasted peanuts.

Only one ingredient. Unsalted dry roasted peanuts. Go Nuts!

When my husband and I were newlyweds, we discovered that we were both fans of Peter Pan Crunchy Peanut Butter. Sure, we liked Jif too. But then about a decade ago we made the switch to natural peanut butter to avoid hydrogenated oil. We switched to Smuckers All Natural and would store the jar upside down so the oil on top would mix in. We enjoyed them all – TJ’s, Lexington Co-Op’s, Peanut Butter and Co- you name it! Well, we are onto something better and I have to give Evan credit for this one. He pulled out the blender and said “I’m making my own.”  Maybe it was the rising cost of peanut butter, maybe it was the added oil or sugar, maybe he was watching an old episode of ‘Father Knows Best’ or maybe it was the extra peanuts in the cupboard; whatever the reason we have not looked back since. Simple. Delicious. Only one ingredient. Unsalted, dry roasted peanuts. Chopped in a ninja blender. It’s that easy. Sure, you can add honey and oil (peanut oil) or molasses or salt or sugar. But why? Go Nuts!!



Sunday. A day to rest and play.

Sunday is a time when we allow ourselves to set anchor and remember our purpose on earth. Sunday is the day to go to church and remember that God made the world and rested. God calls us to rest, to pray, to hear His voice, to be aware of His presence and the beauty of the earth. A time for family and a time to connect. A time away from the office, phone and fax machines. A time to break bread together. A time to relax and play.

Favorite moment

The moment when the groom sees his bride at the altar. That’s it. That is my favorite moment. It sums up a lot of what is important in life. Love, Commitment, Joy, Family and Faith. There he is in all his glory seeing his bride for the first time.

That moment
