Oh Mason, how I love thee.
The things I can say about Mason..
Jar that is.
I have a new found love for mason jars!
I have always loved jars of any kind, but there is just something so appealing about mason jars. They’re so retro, yet so chique, yet country… All at once! That’s versatility if you ask me!
Because everyone is moving out, we had this “stuff swap” room in my residence, where people bring clothes/books/stuff that they don’t want or need anymore. Whatever is in the room is basically a free for all!
Among a few other things, I found some lovely mason jars!
After a thorough washing- they were ready to go!
I’d like to introduce you to:
Steel Cut Oatie, a single bachelor looking for a companion…
And also, meet:
Rolled Oata, a bacheloroatte in search for a perfect partner…
Well, whaddaya know… One day, Rolled Oata and Steel Cut Oaty crossed paths and hit it off!
Now they live happily ever after in their humble pantry, creating beautiful
children breakfasts almost every morning.
Such as this baby here:
Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Steel Cut AND Rolled Oats
Rolled oats combined with steel cut oats in overnight oat recipes create the perfect texture bound bowl of flavor infused breakfasts.
It’s my new favoroat combo!
In the mix for one serving: 1/4 rolled oats + 1/8 cup steel cut oats.
Try it, you’ll like it! Trust me, I know what I’m talking aboat.
Back to jars… Another nut butter jar bites the dust!
Bye bye hazelnut butter, it was nice
knowing eating you! Till we meat again!
I don’t know if you recall me saying that I would gladly take on the challenge of trying to finish all my nut/seed butters before my big move… Well, I’ve been doing pretty well!
Do you remember this pic?
Well this is what I’ve got left:
+ some Tahini (which I forgot to add)
And they’re all nearing the bottom:
I don’t know if it’s something to be proud of that I’ve conquered almost all of my butters…
But, not gonna lie, I’m pretty proud!
Although, I do REALLY miss Almond Butter, it has been weeks since I’ve had any, and I CANNOT wait to go get some more! After I finish the cashew butter I will!
Out of all my nut/seed butter experiences, I have had the hardest time getting through the pretty small jar of cashew butter! I like cashews, but in butter form, it just isn’t my favorite! If I go buy almond butter or peanut butter before I finish the cashew butter…then I don’t know if I’ll ever finish it. And I. Must. Finish. It.
If I had to choose three butters that are a definite win and pantry/fridge essential in my book, they would be:
- This almond butter
- Organic creamy peanut butter
- Coconut Butter (Okay I had to choose four…couldn’t decide!)
Some other butters that I’m curious to try are Pecan Butter and Pumpkin Seed Butter!
Okay so enough with this butter jargon!
Here are some great illustrated ideas with all the things you can do with mason jars! The possibilities are endless!
Have a fantastic day!
