nibbling on toasted almonds

Recently, I have been mostly snacking on these nice (not too naughty) nibbles …
30-4-13 - toasted almonds close up 4BSimply melt a knob of butter in a frying pan and toss in a few handfuls of whatever nuts you fancy. Toast for a few minutes, dab out on kitchen roll and sprinkle with your seasoning of choice.

I went for a trio of salt, stevia granules (no calorie sugar substitute) and chilli powder.  I couldn’t decide which was my favourite flavour until I shook out the remainder of all 3 pots into one and discovered the delights of a flavourful lucky dip.30-4-13 - toasted almonds 4B

    I love toasted almonds! Those look good and speedy too. I tend to sit with a bowl of almonds in boiling hot water and pop their skins off at Christmas and make spicy nuts. It reminds me of my childhood, it was something my Mum did. They also plump up a bit too. It does take time though 🙂

    Very nice! Funnily enough, I did some experimenting with almonds yesterday…used toasted almonds instead of croutons as a garnish for a tasty home-made veg soup. x

    Great idea using the stevia! I love to do a version of Nigella’s Union Street bar nuts but this looks a lot more straightforward

Lunch served on a bed of allotment grown lettuce to make up for the distinct lack of a certain green ingredient from my Greek Salad (I can't really call it that anyway as I can't resist adding balsamic vinegar). #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife

Fathers Day came and went with G having to work away for the day and me being busy with the boys at my parents. So I didn't get the chance to say what a brilliant, supportive and kind Father and husband G is. This is Luca at 4 days old snugged into his Dad's hoody when I was too ill with an infection to hold him We were cup feeding him expressed milk because he had a tongue tie and couldn't nurse. Hard times are always made easier with @musicalgeorgemoorey by my side. #nipitinthebudblog #coparentingdad #gloucesterlife
