10 Pounds Of Peanuts!
So my boys all went chasing after the moon last night only to see a cloudy sky. They loved the adventure even if they couldn't see the eclipse. I was sadly awake for that hour. So, I slept in simply because I could. I think we could all use a little extra rest right now, so I just went with it. I hate working out later in the day though because I feel like the day is wasted even though I have already gotten things accomplished. I still need to work out though. It is crappy outside and that is sucking my motivation away!  I have to set times to work out when I start it later in the day...like specific times. I will be working out at 2:00. Typing it makes it more real...like I have to do it!

So, my grandmother sent me 10 lbs of raw peanuts for Christmas. Now I need ideas! I think I am going to make some "crack nuts" with peanuts instead of pecans. I am definitely going to make peanut butter...any other ideas?

    Wow! What a haul. Hmm, boiled peanuts maybe? I've never tried them but I've heard they're addicting.

    I second the boiled peanuts! Yum! Enjoy those fresh peanuts :)

    I really hope you make some pb cookies after making peanut butter out of it... ;)

    That sure is a lot, though! Good grief!

    I ALWAYS have to tell Ryan, "I am GOING to work out tomorrow morning at ____ o'clock" or I won't do it!

    Can't wait to see what you make with all those peanuts!

    That's a whole lotta peanuts! But, considering we can go through a pound of peanut butter a week in my house, I don't think we'd have a hard time using them up. :)

    I'm not a huge fan of peanuts, but peanut BUTTER? YES :)

    Holy bag of nuts! Wow. What about homemade peanut butter? Or maybe some brittle.

    Sometimes sleeping in trumps workouts. Actually, sleeping in typically trumps AM workouts for me ;-)

    I have a few recipes for peanut butter cookie dough balls (raw, vegan) that use peanuts (ground) + dates, vanilla, sugar, etc. That's what I love using peanuts for.

    And of course roast them, salt them, cinnamon + sugar, you name it, roasted nuts rock!

    Hang in there with the craziness of the holiday season my friend ! :)

    Nice nuts.

    That's a heckuva' lotta' peanuts!

    Way to go on allowing yourself to sleep in — What a treat! Hope you got in a workout!

    My first thought was not "that's a lot of peanuts." it was "thats a lot of peanuts to unshell." Holy moly! haha. I think crack nuts would be great with peanuts...though you know I'd try making about 20 different variations of peanut butter :P

    Tehe, crack peanuts. Love it. Grind and make PB muffins with jam frosting! Um, peanut granola (ooh, I think I'm gonna make that ... can I borrow some peanuts?)

    haha that is a very useful Christmas present! You could make peanut/peanut butter granola bars! Or a stir fry with peanut in it.

    Send those peanuts over to my dad, lol

    He loves peanuts, too bad I can not handle them anymore.

    My favorite peanut recipe is a very simple pesto. I serve it over grilled shrimp & brown rice (or quinoa).

    You need: peanuts, cilantro, lime, olive oil and sea salt. Here's the recipe. Enjoy!
