Labor-less Day

I know it’s Labor Day and I’m supposed to be talking about some amazing glazed, fall of the bone, succulent pork rib dinner, followed by a homemade peach pie with a scoop of Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream…..buuut, you know I like to break the rules.

Today is all about snacks.

Plus, you will need some good snacks if you are going to be behind a grill all day today.

It’s Labor Day, there is no laboring involved in this snack.

It’s only two ingredients.




and toasted coconut…


all up in your face.


Then I pulverized them into a creamy, slightly, salty and sweet


smash-bang toasted coconut pistachio butter.


Y’all this stuff is ridiculous…nutty, slightly crunchy, with an island vibe to it.


Grab a piece of toast and slather some of this on it…then go have a mimosa for me!

Happy Labor Day!
