So I just previewed the new Black Eyed Peas single “The Time (Dirty Bit)” I am not even going to get into it…BUT I am terribly disappointed. I love the BEP and this song is gross. Have a listen. I’m interested to hear your thoughts…

Dinner was simple and quick. An inspiration from my new friend Chelsea over at Strawberry Sweet. Chelsea is also a fellow blogger, law student, runner, and healthy eater. Her blog is great so check it out!

Anyway, she posted this delish breakfast the other day and since I am obsessed with breakfasts I decided to make it for dinner tonight!

Menu: Grilled almond butter and banana sandwich, grapes on the side.

In the mix

2 pieces whole wheat bread

Justin’s almond butter


The process

I sprayed a frying pan with Pam and let it heat up while I prepped the sammie.

I slathered (great verb, btw) some Justin’s on both pieces of bread, sliced up the banana, placed the banana slices on the bread, and then put the sandwich together.

I sprayed each side with 2-3 squirts of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! and put it in the frying pan.

The finished product! The grapes look kinda funky, but trust me, they were great! Super crisp and juicy.

I’d use a smaller banana next time…or just use half. The double stacked banana obvi didn’t make it taste bad…but that’s a lot of banana! It just minimized the taste of the almond butter.

The best part about this sandwich was that everything melted together. The banana was warm and a little mushy and the almond butter was gooey…perfection. 🙂

I’m off to babysit again tonight…different fam but the kids are also great! Have a great safely if you’re in the Twin Cities area!

    I’m glad you like the grilled almond butter/banana sandwich! They were my long run go to breakfasts for a long time–they’re just so good! I think I also first saw them on Caitlin’s blog ( and I’ve been in love with them ever since.

    Haven’t heard that BEP song but I’ll take a listen. I recently heard Taio Cruz and Ke$ha’s new song “Dirty Picture” which I find disgusting (it’s basically about sexting). Which makes it even worse when we think about the teenagers listening to this song and thinking it’s a good idea to send ‘dirty pictures’ to each other–and whoops, now we have child pornography (this is actually what I’m doing my Juvenile Justice paper about). I’m kind of disgusted with pop right now to be honest!
