Before the picnic, Danny was playing with some almonds and coffee. I watched him in the kitchen as I sat at the dining room table and wrote. He kept opening drawers and finding new spices he liked. He zested a lemon, ground some cacao nibs, and dipped a small spoon into the cayenne. I love watching him dance around the kitchen.
As you can see, there weren’t many almonds left in the bowl when I took this photo. Everyone at the picnic kept grabbing a handful in the middle of a conversation, then going back for another handful. They disappeared quickly.
You’re going to have leftover spice rub. Use it on roast chicken, pork, steak, or another batch of nuts. I think it would be a great rub for tofu too.
