For whatever reason, I like to bake or cook on Sunday nights. It’s a relaxing way to end the weekend and I have food for the upcoming week. Last night, I tried my hand at homemade nut butter. I’ve tried to make nut butter in the past but never really got past the finely crushed nut stage. Last night, I combined some raw cashews with some shredded coconut and a drizzle of agave. And processed. And processed. And processed. I ran the food processor for at least ten minutes and it never really got liquidy. It was more like the consistency of a larabar.
The coconut really made it oily which you’d think would help with the consistency, but it didn’t. Semi-fail. My food processor is old and the blade is dull. That could have been it.
Jason’s been really wanting to go to this restaurant, The Blue Ribbon Grill, near our house. We live outside of the city and the restaurants near us, besides Mellow Mushroom, don’t typically cater to someone that prefers healthy, mostly vegetarian fare. But since I usually have more say in where we go, I told Jason I’d go wherever he wanted. He was really hoping Blue Ribbon Grill was like Merlotte’s in True Blood. What do you think?
Living in Atlanta is different than living in the rest of Georgia. This definitely felt like the rest of Georgia. That said, the food was very good. I had a salad with crab cakes on top.
I was good. I compromised and let Jason choose! Now it’s my turn to pick the restaurant again, right?
