The Last Straw

It was the last straw; I’d had enough. On the face of it, it wasn’t a big deal, but it was a big deal for me. I had put my soul into that project. And again, there was no sign of appreciation. It wasn’t just any project, either. It was a one-person project which I had willingly [...]

That’s because the main ingredient here is almond butter which is made of crushed almonds. If you use an unopened jar of almond butter, you may want to mix the almond butter prior [...]
