an ode to almond butter

I have made a new friend: almond butter. Oh my. I never knew anything could taste so yummy. I am trying to eat less things that will irritate my bladder and peanuts are on that list. I don't know why, but the doctor gave me a pamphlet with all the various things to avoid and peanuts were on the list. It said that I could eat almonds though, and I needed a substitute for peanut butter.

I found this next to the peanut butter, and although I wasn't sure about it when I bought the jar, I really do like it. I only recently discovered that I like almonds, so this is all new to me. For some reason, the skin on almonds has always bothered me, until recently. Somehow, I tried them in a mix I had and decided they were okay. It's interesting to see what I suddenly like now that I am older. In the last year I have discovered hollendaise sauce, grits, poached eggs and now almonds and almond butter.

What have you discovered taste-wise lately? Anything new?

Oh, you know I love almond butter. I'll have to look for the
"no stir" variety that you have because it looks so smooth and creamy.
I'm not sure that I've discovered any new food loves lately. Besides fish, I haven't met too many foods that I don't like.

I have always wanted to try it, but haven't gotten around to it. You've got me thinking some serious thoughts about groceries this week ;)
