What a stupid title.
Anyway, in my free time lately, I’ve been frequenting the bulk food section of the market and creating my own trail mix. Talk about a good time.
My first attempt pretty much flopped:
Ingredients: almonds, raisins, and way too many walnuts (which taste like cardboard).
Capital bor-ing! Of course, I bought the costco pack of walnuts, almonds, and raisins so I’ve been choking that failure down since Thanksgiving.
This latest attempt — how shall I say — rocks my socks:
Ingredients: Sunflower seeds (minus the shells, of course), pumpkin seeds (spooky), cashew pieces (the “pieces” are key: same great nut, for half the ridiculous price), raisins (my fav), walnuts (in moderation), almonds (pronounced ammonds where I come from), and cranberries (zing!).
In order to whet your appetite, I’ve included a complementary sample (what now, Costco?). It even looks all faded and dreamy on the edges… probably because it’s straight from your imagination.
