There is something so incredibly satisfying when I create something, taste it, and then want to devour the whole thing. Don’t worry, I don’t. But it makes me want to take photos and post a blog immediately. I restrain myself from doing that though.
But, I must admit, it happened again when I made these raw peanut butter balls.
While I am working up a sweat on the treadmill, my mind often drifts to my love affair with food. What can I make that is pleasing to the palate, and something that I can share with all of you? Kona is off to the side, working on a bone that I filled with peanut butter. Now, I think about peanut butter. I want to take a very large spoon, grab the jar of peanut butter and slowly, lick it off the spoon. As I tell myself to maintain, I decide that later I am making something peanut butter.
Oh that reminds me, I am reviewing the use of the hoo-rag. I wore it on the treadmill. Look for the review coming up this week, and a giveaway to receive one too.
Back to peanut butter. These raw treats are filled with nothing but goodness. They are addicting though. I wonder if I can double the batch and freeze them. Then take them out one at a time and pop them when that peanut butter craving hits me. Which is often, I must say.
