I'm back again!
I know.. I've been a bit slack lately. My life has just been crazy lately.
Between starting a new job, my research project kicking off, trying to start a literature review, training for the Irish Student Trampoline Open (ISTO) and also attempting to have some kind of social life.
If anyone wants to be my personal assistant that would be great. I'll pay you in cookies and cupcakes. Diabetics need not apply, I don't want a law suit.
So to say sorry for being AWOL, I gives you a fuzzy.
I WANTS HIM.
And as another sorry, I'm going to show you how to be a fancypants i.e. how to make your own peanut butter.
Now, as per Facebook correspondence, making your own peanut butter is still fancy regardless what some people might say:
"Uh, you can buy peanut butter in the supermarket.. awkward." (Joyce, 2012).
It's still fancy, it's also super easy, so you can pretend to everyone that you're being fancy and say stuff like "Oh, I only eat my own peanut butter" or as a friend of mine enjoys to say about EVERYTHING "I don't do <insert thing here>." (Anderson, 2010).
So when someone offers you Tesco Peanut Butter, just follow the similar steps of my friend and say something like "I don't do Tesco peanut butter, don't you have any home-made peanut butter? I usually only eat the peanut butter that I make." Or a phrase which is equally as fancy. You may also wear a moustache and monocle for added fanciness. A top hat and cane would be taking it a bit too far, we're not snobs.
Moustache + Monocle = Fancy
Top Hat + Cane = Snobby
I'm glad we cleared that up.
So get to it, this peanut butter is delicious and I really am not a big fan of peanut butter. We'll also be using this peanut butter in an upcoming DELICIOUS recipe. It cured my hangover, however, it also made me feel enormous. Sacrifices must be made for the greater good.
Home-made Peanut Butter
15 oz Roasted Peanuts
1 tsp Salt (if they're salted peanuts just omit this)
1 1/2 tsp Honey
1 1/2 tbsp Peanut Oil (I didn't have this so I used olive oil, worked just as well)
Add the peanuts, honey and salt to a food processor and blitz for one minute.
Scrape down the sides of the food processor.
Continue to process whilst pouring the oil down the feed tube, I had to add more oil to reach the consistency I wanted which resulted in a slightly oily peanut butter. Still delicious though!
Store in fridge for up to 2 months.
Stay tuned for an upcoming recipe using peanut butter. Five words: Chocolate.Peanut. Butter.Crispie.Bars.
