So I am babysitting my friend’s kids today, as usual, and I realized that I had completely forgotten to plan for a lunch they will eat. (They’re not familiar enough with the foods I generally serve my kids, I think.) So I figure, okay, that’s fine, I’ll pull out my emergency loaf of bread from the freezer and make PB&J. All kids like that. And it will go great with the homemade applesauce the girls and I cooked this morning.
So, lunchtime comes around and I look through the fridge. There is NO PEANUT BUTTER. And I realize with chagrin that I handed my husband the last extra jar of it to take to work. Great. Now what will I do! They certainly won’t eat chicken curry leftovers. LOL. (Or maybe they would, but I wouldn’t ask them to.) Suddenly I remembered that my fancy new food processor my husband gave me for my birthday, will make nut butter easily. So I threw a pound or so of nuts into it, a few spoons of coconut oil, and a little salt, and voila!
Peanut-pecan butter and spreadable strawberry sandwiches with homemade strawberry-apple sauce.
