I love peanut butter (almond butter, cashew butter) on apples and celery. Did you know that cashews aren't technically nuts? They don't have a shell. One of my sons was in the Peace Corps in Guyana and they have cashew trees there. The tree has a fruit, and what we call the cashew nut is a little knob on the bottom of the fruit. They eat the fruit there, but it's a soft fruit with a fragile skin, so not suitable for export.

epixi - boy, when you do things, you go big! Glad you had a good time - there's nothing like sharing a good meal with friends and family - it makes all the calorie watching on other days worthwhile.

I'm doing ok on calories, not so good on everything else.
