Make your own Trail Mix!

making my own trailmix

To help with the morning and afternoon munchies, Casey and I have been enjoying individually packaged trail mix from Trader Joe’s.

But today—we RAN OUT!

The thought of going back to the grocery store made my heart race! Wasn’t I just complaining about how hard it is to go?

On my large list of THINGS TO DO is:


So this activity helped knock that off my list (well, almost).

I dug into my pantry and made my own trail mix. I didn’t even have to leave the house and I got EXACTLY what I love in a trail mix.

Today was a good day!

I measured 1/4 cup of the mix and put it into each of the snack- sized Ziploc bags.

1/4 cup in each bag

This mix included:

-salted peanuts
-pistachios (never had it in a mix before, but it’s good)
-golden raisins
-walnut pieces
-semi-sweet chocolate chips (for Casey’s sake)

bring on the snacking!

Look! We have a HUGE bowl full of snacks that on our kitchen island.

Should be a snap grab a few bags on our way to the car in the mornings.

How easy is that? (did I just quote Ina Garten? yikes!)

I should mention that I did have some help with this….

Thanks Coop! You are a good helper!
