I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts...

It is Labor Day weekend. The unofficial end of summer. While I adore the fall with all of my heart, it is always sad to see the season of pool days and sundresses come to an end. As I was contemplating the departure of summer this morning, I decided that the best way too keep a little part of the season alive was to dive into some coconut butter.

Lately, I have found that there is no need to decieve myself by pretending to use it as a garnish—it is best eaten by the, I mean spoonfullS. 

However, while I sit here glorying in my coconut induced coma of happiness, I realized that you, my dear readers, are left out in the cold. For this reason, I picked up an extra jar of Artisana Coconut Butter (my absolute favorite) to give to one of you. Now, I want to make it VERY clear that this is in NO way sponsored by Artisana or any other company. This is my unbiased and well-researched (if it is made of coconut, I have tasted it!) opinion and I just feel like sharing (I am the youngest, I am VERY good at sharing...and wearing hand-me-downs).

  1. aw this is great! I will miss the late sunlight that stretches into the evenings. But I'm so looking forward to wearing sweaters and apple picking and chilly mornings with warm coffee :)

  2. I will miss the long hours of light into the evening. But I won't miss the sweltering temps! I love everything about fall--it's my favorite season! I am most looking forward to pumpkins and hokkaido squash and wearing sweaters and cozy clothes again.

  3. I admit... I won't miss much about summer. It is hot and humid here is south Louisiana. But I guess I will miss it staying light outside until 7:30 or 8. Can't wait for fall and cool weather!

  4. I'm going to miss the long days and flip flops. For fall, I'm looking forward to the cool mornings, mild afternoons, beautiful trees and everything Halloween!

  5. I've never had coconut butter but I'm super curious to try it. I'm not a huge coconut fan, but I think this would be good in oats!

    I LOVE Fall and I don't know that I could pick my favorite things - cooler weather, foliage, apples, crisps, cider doughnuts!! So many things!

  6. i love coconut, but i've never had coconut butter!! Fun :) I'm SOOOO excited for fall - i'm looking forward to pumpkins, pumpkin beer, apple cider donuts, pretty leaves, pumpkin spice lattes. I could keep going, but i'll spare you :)

  7. omg I've wanted to try coconut butter forever!!! I have coconut oil but the butter looks soo good. I LOVE fall so I won't miss summer one bit. Pumpkin, Halloween, fleecy warm clothes. :)

  8. I love this butter but only bought it twice it's so expensive. I'm going to miss long walks by the river in the hot sun. But I look forward to crisp, crunchy leaves while taking a brisk walk with a scarf :) And halloween TV cheesy movies :)
