How to reduce paper towel usage for greasy stuff?

Caught this from Lifehacker :) Happy greasing! :D

Clean Grease With Newspaper (and Stop Wasting Paper Towels)

After reading this tip about saving paper towels, reader tdub97 shares another great tip for keeping your consumption down:
Another great way to stop wasting paper towels is instead of using layers of them to absorb grease after cooking fried foods, take a few pages of newspaper and top that with one paper towel. Then put the bacon, or whatever you want to degrease, on top of the paper towel. The towel absorbs the grease, which is then sucked down and absorbed by the underlying newspaper. This not only conserves paper towels (newspapers are a lot cheaper), but it's also is a great way to repurpose old newspaper…Eat bacon, Save a Tree!

Homemade 'chunky cashewnut butter with honey' ♥

Homemade stuff is really a joy - both the process and the outcome.  Finally got the chance to work on #thepeanutbutterproject and here's to share with you :)

First you start by making sure you have all the right ingredients.  Roasted cashews (you can use peanuts, or whatever nuts you prefer), some salt, butter and honey.

 First, blend some cashews into small chunks and then set them aside.  I later added them back into the blend to keep em' chunky :)

Then blend the rest of the cashews.

Till fine.

Add butter, honey and a tiny pinch of salt (cause roasted nuts usually are salted already).  I won't say how much but I just kept adding, and tasting, and checking the consistency of the texture.  And keep blending.

Till you get like a paste like this and it's about done!  Add back the chunky bits and hit the processor one more time.

Then spread it on~ nyams.  It's a little dry because I didn't add any oil.  I thought it'll make the whole paste oily instead of smooth like Skippy.

And last but not least... TADA! できた!

Homemade is good.  While the texture and flavour might not be something familiar (like Skippy) but imagine minus-ing all those unnecessary additives from your daily diet, one small step at a time?  Spend some quality time this weekend with quality produce :)  Enjoy your own cashewnut butter today!
