TOASTED WALNUT CASHEW BUTTER

OH. EM. GEE. Yes. All caps IS necessary. You guys. I can NOT even describe how delicious this stuff is. I gave some to my son-in-law and he said it tasted like “Gawd!!” (as in an exclamation, not as in our Heavenly Father.) It IS pretty divine, though. I cannot stop eating it. Seriously.

I made Brussels sprouts. For myself. To eat. Wait, what??! I don’t even know who I am anymore! I know, I know. You don’t know enough about me to know why that should make your jaw hit the floor.
