    tarheelfan4life - I also have 2 sets of the Cesar coupons if you'd like them. I can mail them to you.

    ddalmas - this may not be appropriate for this blog but I'm going to say it - brother/sister from another mother/mister?! I use the same recipe for almond milk and I make banana nut bread with the almond meal!

    Oh, and then I use the almond meal in any recipe calling for almond flour, typically banana nut muffins.

    smolder13: Here's a link to the recipe I've used for the almond milk, and to strain it I bought some cheesecloth from A.C.Moore and sewed the ends together to form a bag. The recipe includes her tip for drying the leftover meal in the oven, which I do in a 9x13 pan at 175 degrees for about an hour.

    Here's a link for almond butter, although I used almond oil rather than macadamia nut oil. I have also sometimes sweetened with 1 tsp of pure maple syrup or honey.

    tarheelfan4lfie - I have 2 sets of the Cesar coupons for you. E-mail your addy to me at and I'll mail them on Monday.

    Did anybody get the Cesar coupons in the N&O today and you are not going to use them? I could use them since we have 2 small dogs and this is the only food they will eat. Let me know. Thanks.

    I have a $10.00 off of $50.00 purchase for HT from recycle bank. I do not need any coupons in return nor do i need another $ off $$ in return. I ordered it and did my shopping at Save a Lot this week and it expires on 10/02. If you need it email me. I am willing to meet at the Cameron Village HT only.

    Thank you for the suggestions, I guess I'm going to have to make note of prices when I go to these different stores. pss3: I'm looking for raw nuts, any brand as long as they're not rancid. ddalmas: I've made almond milk and toasted the almond meal too! I'll let you know if I find a good deal. smolder13: you can use the raw or roasted for almond butter but you need raw only for hte milk. jdouglas13: I used to buy raw cashews from TJ's because they're almost ~ $1 cheaper per pound compared to Whole Foods and I haven't have any bad experiences so far. I'll be sure to check out Kroger.
