Food ProcessingPosted: April 18, 2010
Where did the weekend go? Can I get a do over?
This afternoon I finally made it to Giant to do a little food shopping with a ton of other people. Yuck. I hate going to the grocery store late. I like being alone in the store. I can examine packages and ingredients while taking up the whole isle with my cart. Grocery shopping makes me happy, but like I said before farmers markets are way better!
When I returned I set to making my first thing in the food processor for the night.
I dumped in the hot out of the oven almonds into the food processor and they were off. It didn’t take long to get a nice creamy almond butter!
I made two types.
The above is almonds + 1tbs chia seeds + 1 tbs ground flax.
I enjoyed a sample of nut butter with a gala apple and packed up the extras into the fridge.
I got the idea of crustini on my brain so I came up with a larger version for my dinner.
I mixed black beans, green peas, basil, sundried tomatoes and S&P in the food processor while I toasted my bread with EVOO.
I love my food processor! I am planning on using it for tomorrow’s Meatless Monday meal. Any ideas as to what I could be making????
I can’t wait for almond butter in my oats in the morning!
Have a great night!
