A man in the kitchen….

We like eating in my family! It’s one of our favorite things to do. Food just makes us happy! Maybe you like it too. When I find something new to make….I can’t think of anything else until I do it! That was the case yesterday. I had been mulling over a snack mix recipe and a little emergency run to the bank put me in a position to grab the ingredients.

Oh did I just mention…..an emergency run to the bank? Yea, I did….didn’t I? All I can say is that I’m so glad the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. It’s heartwarming to know that of all the things we’ve passed along to our children…..”learning everything the hard way!!” is at the top of the list!

Long story short! Gavin’s car was towed at IU! Cost? $110! If I hadn’t gone RIGHT THEN? It would have been an additional $50! Yea, Merry Christmas! 🙂

Back to a man in the kitchen! Happy thoughts. Happy thoughts. Tyler Mote (my daughter’s TLF) came to town and when I couldn’t get anybody else to help….he volunteered to make the yummy snack mix! I love that boy! Not only was it EASY….but oh my goodness it was delicious! Scrumptious!

You must make it! Go…now….do it!
