Trail Mix is the perfect little “party favor” or “snack” or “hostess gift.” We set out jars of this Fall Trail Mix on the table at our family reunion. The twine tied jars of assorted nuts and fall colored candies added to the table decor and I’m sure provided our guests with a nice little snack for their drive home.
Is your garden overflowing with fresh basil? Or maybe you have a farmer’s market near you? Either way, making pesto is quick, easy, delicious, and perfect to make ahead and freeze. I love making big batches of my Basil Pesto (make it and freeze it)! Dig through my freezer and I’m sure you’ll find multiple zip-locks bags full of pesto cubes. Yep, cubes! Doesn’t your pesto come in cubes? It will if you freeze it in ice cube trays!!
Who doesn’t love a handful of sweet and salty trail mix?? I made up a huge batch and couldn’t resist a few little “tastes” as I was bagging it up.
I remember growing up when salad was iceberg lettuce, tomato, and cucumber. Add bottled dressing and call it salad. It was good, but not like the salads we eat now. I’ll share my favorite go-to salad in the next couple of weeks, but for now, I’ll just tease you with the sweet little candied pecans that will top it off.
