Food: Peanut Butter Tasting

https://pixabay.com/en/users/eroyka-3731342/


Let me say upfront that the healthiest and most excellent peanut butter you can ever have is one that you make right in your kitchen. A friend shared with me how she makes it; no oil and no sugar. She buys high quality, unsalted peanuts. She slow pulses them until they oil up and smoothen out.

I used to like the Goober 's Strawberry Peanut Butter and Jelly Stripes. But in recent years I started rejecting the taste.  I don't know if the makers made changes or if I just outgrew the smell and taste of it. I consumed Peter Pan's Natural Honey Roast Peanut Butter for a while, it was yummy. But I decided to go Peanut Butter tasting and have been trying a number of good tasting ones as well. Here are some more yummy Peanut Butter Brands.

1. Bramwells American Style Peanut Butter, available at ALDI stores.


2. Macro Organic Crunchy Peanut Butter at Woolworths Stores. All natural ingredients. 100% Organic Roasted Peanuts.


3. Purely Nutz. Bee Happy Honey and Cinnamon Peanut Butter by Proteco Oils.  100% Australian grown peanuts. No sugar added, no fat. preservative and chemical free.


If 100% pure peanut butter is bland or bitter or too nutty for you, try spreading honey on top of your peanut butter spread. Yum!

Container Gardening: Planting KangKong in Pots (Water Spinach)

Kang kong is a well-known leafy vegetable used in many Philippine dishes. It is quite easy to grow they say. There was a time when you can find kangkong patches on most streets in the neighborhood. It is also called water spinach or swamp cabbage. It thrives in wet, moist areas. Many grow it solely in water. It quickly grows under sunny spots but carers should keep the soil moist. Else, it may die. Some tips: Not much intstructions on planting. Just bury the seed and keep the soil moist or muddy.  Kangkong grows all year round. Cut maybe an inch or two above the soil for continued regrowth and harvesting. Winter may see your plant dying but often, it regrows by spring. You may fertilize with nitrogen twice a month. You may harvest whole plants at about 1 to 2 months. Kangkong has the tendency to spread. Grow in a container for easy maintenance or harvest whole plants to control your supply. It is best to use potting soil for your containers. Putting regular soil in restric

Bullmastiff: All Wrinkly and Sweet Giant

We have this pet bullmastiff and I’m sure I don’t uniquely feel this way; like other dog owners, I feel our Simba is one of a kind. He has his ways, quirks and all that, which gives him this distinct identity and character. We named him Simba, which means “Lion”. He was an ugly pup. I almost wanted to back out from purchasing him at the kennel. He didn’t look like a regular bullmastiff, no wrinkles, no large frame. He was thin, lean, and all straight and flat. Characteristic of normal Bullmastiffs , he was guarded at first, a bit aloof and doubtful of people and surroundings. It took him over two months to feel more at ease in our home, to freely walk around without being easily spooked, and to trustingly accept our spontaneous pats on his forehead. He wasn’t affectionate for a long time. You would have to initiate physical contact. Many times when we called, he wouldn’t come. And when we approached him, he would move somewhere else. The Bullmastiff is one dog breed you woul

What Does Romans 8:28 Mean About All Things Work Together For Good?

All things work together for good Romans 8:28 is a well-known verse that Christians usually memorize or list down under "God's Promises." It says, "We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God:  those who are called according to His purpose." Is this really a promise from God? Is this a sure promise that we can claim? Is Romans 8:28 true? Or is the Bible lying in this particular verse? Because, by experience, people know that NOT all things turn out good in the end. So, what exactly does this Scripture mean? And is it for everyone? Let's take a closer look at Romans 8:28 and understand what the verse is actually telling us today. Romans 8:28 in different bible translations We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose. (HCSB)/similar in form with NIV.
