    almond butter is good and all but so is cashew butter! no?!? I actually prefer it but I guess we just have different taste buds….not about your dinner and desert though they both look yum

    even i agree that some things are worth the splurge 😀

    your stuffed tomatoes look delicious — great job throwing together a gourmet meal from odds ‘n’ ends. that’s how the best food always comes about!

    Oh your cheesy topping on those is irresistible! Delicious!

    $6 for AB isn’t even the worst of it…here in Gainesville you’re lucky to find any under $10 a jar! Lucky WF sells a cheaper option 🙂

    Dinner looks awesome! (and so creative!!!)

    Question: Do you plan out your meals in the beginning of the week or when you need to go grocery shopping? I’m curious because finally next year I will be getting an apartment at school (and getting away from the crappy school food).. and I was curious about how much you spend a week on groceries (you dont have to answer that .. if thats too personal or of a question) .. i can’t wait to try some of your awesome recipes for dinners 🙂

      I used to plan my meals at the beginning of the week, but lately I find it harder to plan and have just been cooking on the whim. I do dedicated Sunday as my grocery shopping day and get all my groceries in then. I roughly buy the same things each week, unless there is something new on sale, if you notice my meals usually contain the same ingredients. 🙂 THe bill hovers around $50 each week. I think that’s good considering I don’t really eat out during the week so thats three meals for 7 days a week

    Good call with the tomatoes! I don’t like them – but if I did, I’d probably try this recipe 🙂

    I live for the weekends too. Today was my first day back to work this week, and I still can’t believe it’s only Wednesday. What’s wrong with me?!?

    I’ve never had Cashew butter, I know I’m going to be shunned in blogworld for saying this, but I think I like PB better than Almond butter. However, I’ve never had Barney Butter, i’m scared to try it because it’s so expensive I don’t want to love it! lol. Ever since I tried Fage, I can’t go back to normal yogurt, I think I need just one super expensive weekly grocery splurge in my like.

    If you can find cheap almonds it’s very easy to make your own butter – if you have a food processor.

    I agree on the almond butter- i tried cashew this weekend and wasn’t really a fan! What brand did u get of AB..i’ve only had Maranatha, so delish. Why are the most expensive things so much freakin better?? I love those orange tomatoes i’m on a hunt now 😀

    I didn’t see that they were orange tomatoes and I thought you were cooking with oranges! I wasn’t too sure about it until I went back and read it again…. 🙂

    Yum, those tomatoes look amazing. I wish the spring would hurry up and get here so I could buy some nice tomatoes, i.e. ones worthy of your recipe!

    I love MaraNatha almond butter and it’s a really decent price at Costco…I was shocked to see it for $15 at WF! Those tomatoes look so cute and delicious!

    Your stuffed orange tomatoes look amazing!!! great recipe and love the color of those things…so bright. The cheapest brand of almond butter i can find is maranatha and I LOVE it…so it is worth it. I need to start rationing this out though because i go through it TOO fast.

    Perhaps I’m just weird, but I actually prefer cashew butter to almond butter. But I also like cashews better than almonds, so that probably has something to do with it.
