I have all these wonderful posts for you after my baking and snack frenzy I went on for the holidays and my camera cord is no were to be found. Seriously. It’s such a horrible thing. I went and ordered a new one because I don’t know where it is. Hopefully it gets here soon so I can continue my posting.
I remember having it a week ago and I think it will turn up so I just keep waiting, and looking, and waiting. I have this thing called “Baby Brain”. I never believe all my friends that claimed this existed. Whenever they talked about being pregnant and forgetful I just thought to myself, “Oh sure it’s just an excuse so you can blame it on something.”
WELL was I wrong! My hubby asked if I’d found it…I informed him no. He told me to look next to the buttons and my bonus check from work, as I have lost those too.
Bet my mind is right next too them!
Ok enough about me and my forgetfulness. This recipe is wonderful. I always make it around Christmas time, but it would be great for a snack anytime. The recipe was handed down to me but my Grandma and Great Aunt Eunice. Now even my sister-in-law recognizes this snack mix for a holiday treat. When it graced my mom’s table she was saying “Ohhh that yummy snack mix!”.
Plus it simple. I mean it uses a grocery bag to mix it in so there’s hardly any clean up involved. I’m telling you my Grandma was a genius to snap this one up!
