I think I forgot to mention that I got a bread machine the weekend before last. It was on sale at Williams Sonoma and Bobby and I couldn’t resist. Since then I made a couple kinds of bread from Williams Sonoma mixes – Honey Wheat and Italian Herb. I have been making a lot of these:
The one pictured is with homemade Italian Herb bread, sunflower seed butter (Maranatha), and bananas. It’s good with honey drizzled on it too, but sometimes I am just too lazy. I actually had 2 of these for dinner tonight. I had planned on making stuffed acorn squash but instead decided to be a sandwich bum.
I also saw one of the cutest graffiti ever:
Cat! Too bad it’s not fatter. That would have been the cutest.
Is there graffiti in the town where you live?
Here in NYC it is all over.

The other day I got a package from Maranatha – 2 jars of nut butter. They sent me one jar of no-stir peanut butter and one jar of no-stir almond butter.
Let me tell you – I thought I didn’t really like almond butter… I was so wrong. This almond butter is great. Both the almond butter and the peanut butter are slightly sweetened with organic cane sugar.
Thanks, Maranatha! I can’t wait to experiment with these. So far I’ve just had them plain, in oatmeal, and on rice cakes.
I work long hours so recently I have been going to Gourmet Park for dinner. My favorite thing to get is the unlimited topping salad for $6.95. You pick a base (I get romaine), one “meat’” (I get either bacon or shrimp, depending on my mood), and unlimited gourmet toppings.

I bought two jars of PB2 last week, and they are nearly gone. The first was gone in 2.5 days. I’m being a bit more conservative with the second jar because this stuff is expensive. I got my PB2 at a small specialty food store called Lite for Life in Santa Clara, CA. The damage: $6.49 per jar.
Oops – I ate this on my macrobiotic experiment even though it had sugar in it. Justification – the sugar content was very minimal, and PB2 has no preservatives.
PB2 is powdered peanut butter. You add water and mix before eating. You can also add the powder to other recipes – like oatmeal, pad thai, or salad dressing. I used it in my Vegan Mac and Cheeze instead of nutritional yeast. PB2 has some very cool nutritionals, and a stellar ingredient list.
Ingredients: Roasted peanuts, salt, sugar.
