*blush blush* Oops! It was tinlizzy that said almond butter was too sweet. Hmm, that's what I get for trying to remember who I'm replying to instead of quoting them. Stupid Old Brain Syndrome.

Just had a handful of Nabisco Better Cheddar crackers to go with my glass of wine. Cheese AND crackers together - the ultimate Lazy Person's snack.

Kylie, I do like me a Lindt dark chocolate truffle. Every once in a while Himself brings a bag of those evil little balls home to me. Love him! But my favorite chocolate is Malley's, from Cleveland. They make a Nutmallow (dark or milk chocolate) that is to diet for! Loverly sends me a box every Christmas in their box of gifts for Mom and Dad. I taught the kids good.

Uhm, now I'm confused. I was just adding my two cents' worth. You don't like Nutella, I don't like Nutella. I don't think almond butter is too sweet, so since we agree on Nutella, you might not think almond butter is too sweet.

OK taxy, now I'm confused too! Guess one of these days I'll try almond butter? Maybe. Anyway, at this point like the song goes "let's call the whole thing off"!

I just had a slice of some new kind of bread my main grocery store started selling - a blueberry lemon "breakfast" bread. Not a quick bread like banana nut, but a raised dough one. It tastes fine but it has a strange fake lemon smell. Kinda like a solvent smell. Since it tastes fine I'll eat it. Had a slice a day or two ago and I didn't get sick, so it must be OK. Just OK. Won't buy it again, but won't pitch this one. Wonder how it would be for French toast?

CG, you can make your own almond butter, just make sure your food processor is in good shape, as it takes awhile to pulse them into butter.
