I love nuts…from my head down to my…errrrrrrrrrrr. Um, yeah. I love nuts. They are a tasty treat – a delicious snack – a good side – a nice topping – a good dinner. Wait, that’s not just me who eats nuts for a meal, right?
Around these parts, we keep nuts on hand all the time – because sometimes Mama gets a brain freeze and can’t think of something for snack. Out come the nuts! Not to mention that they make a delicious garnish. Am I the only one who sometimes just eats the garnish? I’m not a very formal person.
So, More Than Alive sent me one pound each of almonds, cashews, pecans, and walnuts and I get to give away the same amount to one of you! So, I thought it would be fun to do a little nutty recipe round-up and feature…nuts. I’m predictable like that – plus, I like lists. See under the round up and enter to win a nutty gift pack!
Sometimes it’s hard to get good quality, organic and raw nuts. I was very disappointed this week when I opened a brand new package of macadamia nuts only to find they were rancid – just purchased from the store. Yuck. That makes me want to stomp my foot – you’ll find the quality and freshness of the nuts from More Than Alive is exceptional!
