Snax.

I’m still trying to get over that whole carrot cake coffee cake debacle yesterday.
It’s obviously taken everything in my being not to put carrots in my oatmeal, muffins, cookies, and pancakes and call it carrot cake “insert obsessive food name here.” What can I say? My sweet teeth are on a sugar high. Lawwwd.
Let’s talk snacks. It’s no joke that I love me some snacks. Anything involving a bowl of green dip and an assortment of raw veggies has my name written all over it. Cheezy kale chips? Check! Peanut butter with homemade flax crackers? My latest obsession. You get it. My relationship with anything involving any kind of nut butter is still going strong. I don’t think I will ever be able to bury that one.
Praise Jesus.

I’m pretty sure…no I’m 100% positive that I have an addiction to nut butter.

This one combines honey roasted almonds…more almonds…and cashews.

This took me about 10 minutes to make. That is my kind of snack.

IMG_0714

You know…the lazy kind of snack.

IMG_0716

The kind of snack that just lets the food processor do all of the work.

Now if only the food processor could clean itself.

I mean when I purchased the thing it should have came with an “I don’t have time for this high-maintenance piece of equipment that takes 30 minutes to wash by hand” clause.

And of course I don’t want to put it in the dish washer because I mean…who has room for that?

IMG_0725

Nobody…that’s who.

Now, I’m off to do something productive…like watch re-runs of Mob Wives and fold  stare at the load of unfolded laundry sitting on my couch.
