Rosemary Roasted Almonds

Actually, there was a one in 365 chance of doing that, and…BOOM! I think this is when you’re supposed to buy a lottery ticket, right? Anyhoo, I had been meaning to make this recipe for weeks, and realized I only had exactly as much fresh rosemary left as I’d need, so decided to get my rear in gear.

Pear Apple Zinger

Juice it up. And put some muscle into it like my little friend. Check out the guns on that girl! 😉 Pour and enjoy! (By the way, how about that juice foam? I usually am not a fan, but with this one I think it looks really pretty!)
