1. First things first.
I have a new (incredibly dangerous) obsession:
Much more flavorful than my beloved Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter, Wafels & Dinges Spekuloos Spread is utterly addictive.
I have to thank Kelli for mentioning this product in the comments on my Speculoos Cookie Butter Baked Oatmeal post; I LOVE it =).
can say with certainty admit that the majority of the jar will be was consumed like so:
2. I made my carnitas for the second time a little while ago, and used the leftovers to make pulled pork nachos.
Yes. Pulled pork nachos!
I made my homemade corn tortilla chips, loaded on the pulled pork along with some shredded 50% reduced fat jalapeno cheddar, baked the nachos, and topped ‘em with diced avocado and chopped cilantro.
3. I have some exciting (non food-related) news!
John and I bought a house in a nearby suburb, and couldn’t be more excited to close in late May and move in early/mid June =). I will share some photos once we are settled in this summer!
4. Back to the food.
Here we have my version of the Grilled Banana Sandwich from Mike & Patty’s in Boston’s South End. Cinnamon honey butter crisps up the bread while caramelized bananas keeps the center nice and soft.
