In an effort to provide a life update, here is what my camera says happened over the 4th of July weekend. Worth mentioning now though; I’ve been on a peanut bender lately. What is up with that? I’ll explain briefly what happened.
A few weeks ago we were on a trip to visit my Mother and one night we wanted to make thai food for her. When we make this at home, we use cashews a lot (because we have given up peanuts). Anyway, we had to run to the store to get ingredients and because I’m a total cheapskate I didn’t want to invest in an awesome jar of cashews simply for this meal, so we grabbed a store brand of mixed salted party nuts to use instead. DUDE. I had forgotten what peanuts were like. We ate the entire can of the mixed nuts in about 36 hours…and then when we got home, we bought more. They are in the pantry RIGHT NOW.
So since then, I’ve been eating mixed nuts including peanuts. We even ran low on almond butter so we picked out this really clean peanut butter from the store that doesn’t have any shit in it, and it is literally the best peanut butter I have ever had. I know, I bring a heap of shame onto my paleo brethren. But right now, it’s just what’s going to happen in my life.
