Autumn has arrived! We've had several rainy days this week, both Hal and Marianna are sick and it is the first week of school! Gotta be Fall.
To maintain my energy this week, I shelved the vitamins and went straight for my favorite Autumn Trail Mix. So yummy and all mine -mostly - as Marianna hates candy corn still and is banned from nuts and dried fruit with her braces, while Hal always looks for any chocolate bits in a mix like this, carefully selecting those precious pieces and leaving all the "rabbit food" for me. Unfortunately for him, I forgot the chocolate this time. Maybe I'll toss some Dove Dark Chocolates in for him tonight. :)
Ann's House of Nuts
- Nuts and Fruits Mix, contains peanuts, almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds, dates, pineapple, raisins, coconut and other goodies, I'm certain.
- I chose the original, traditional style though I did see that they have a new Caramel Blend this year. I may have to get brave and try that one next! Anybody else had it yet? Is it yummy?
Next step in this highly scientific recipe - pour in bag, carefully mix while admiring all the deliciousness awaiting you. A piece or two may now be snitched for tasting, rather like cookie dough prior to baking, one must make certain the ingredients are top notch, correct?
Last but definitely not least, artfully arrange in bowl by dumping. Bowls are the preferred method of serving as they facilitate the filling of large fistfuls of pure energy resulting in an increase of housework completed, books read, rosaries recited, menus planned and marathons run.
