I have been quiet this week because I have been busy preparing for Dan’s baptism party. We are having my huge family over to celebrate the occasion. Dan’s separation anxiety has held me hostage and so I was playing catch up all week trying to get ready! Dan will literally not let me put him down for more than 30 minutes a day. My mom came to help me and she has dubbed him “W.B.E” (Worst Baby Ever). Today, Dan was actually really good. He crawled around the whole house contentedly and he even took a few steps for me (hope that continues…) Maybe he is finally coming around to the fact that we are not the same person. We’ll see.
I thought I would post a simple snack idea since I was sitting down for a few minutes!
TAMARI ROASTED ALMONDS
1/4 cup San-J Wheat-Free Tamari Sauce
6 oz. almonds (I prefer plain, unsalted)
Combine the almonds and tamari sauce in a medium bowl. Let the almonds marinate with the tamari sauce for about 30 minutes. Drain the almonds. Spread the almonds on a baking sheet and roast at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes. You may want to stick around in case your almonds roast a little faster than mine! Loosen the almonds with a spatula. Serve.
Remember this snack is good for you, but it is energy-packed, so try and exercise restraint!
If you have a friend around, you may want to double the recipe!
Note: One of my dear readers informed me that roasting nuts above 170 degrees may release free radicals. Blogging is great for learning new things; it is amazing how much I have learned in a year! Anyway, check out the article here and try the recipe at a lower temperature if you are concerned about this issue!
