Okay, I don't know if this counts as a "snack" or lunch or "brunch" or what, but it is very tasty!

(serves 1 but multiply everything by the number of people eating)

1. Hard boil 1 egg
2. While the egg is boiling, dice a small tomato and lightly toast a slice of your favourite bread (if you didn't use your grill (broiler?) to do the toast, turn your grill on to pre-heat)
3. Shell the egg and put it in a bowl. Mash it well with a fork.
4. Throw the chopped tomato and 1 dessert spoon of mayo in with the egg, season to taste (don't add much salt unless you like things really salty, but lots of fresh ground black pepper) and mix
5. Pile the mixture on top of your toast, smooth out, and put under a medium grill for a few minutes (you want to heat the mixture, not brown or burn it, so this is no time to leave the kitchen!) About 2 minutes should do.

Toastily tasty!

Right now I'm eating Crunchmaster roasted vegetable crackers. Great taste with the right amount of spiciness.

We didn't eat lunch yesterday, we had a late breakfast, and we were planning a big supper. So.....we had smoked salmon on crackers, one of my favorite snacks!

Pour the oil off. Bea, you're a genius! That almond butter was a bear to stir up completely, too.
Make PB cookies substituting the almond butter.

Well, I don't eat breakfast or lunch. So I tend to just graze most of the time. Right now it is Triscuits with butter on them. Last night I had one Italian sausage.

Thanks for the "too sweet" review. Now I know to avoid that like I do Nutella. Shocker, this chocoholic doesn't like Nutella! To me it's more sugary than chocolatey.

I wonder if you could mix the almond butter with cream cheese and use as a bagel spread. Or thin it out and use it as a dipping sauce for PuPu platter type foods. Maybe use it in baking some sort of recipe that calls for peanut butter. OK, I came up with 3. You're on your own for the next couple.
