A Little Snick Snack

I don't know if it's because I'm a teacher, or what, but I still have to have an after-school snack every day. At about 3:15 my tummy gets rumbly and I start scavenging through the pantry. You don't want to be around if at 4:00 I haven't had my snack yet. So, what do I eat, you ask? I always seem to go back to a mix of honey roasted peanuts and dried cranberries. I don't know what it is about this snack, but it just really hits the spot for me. It's a perfect blend of sweet and salty. So, go ahead. Try it. I dare ya!




What do you like to snack on? I'm always open to other options. Oh, and I also like wheat thins dipped in peanut butter and honey.
And, in other news, I will be outta the loop for the next few days. My sister-in-law is getting hitched, and things are starting to get a little nutso with the schedule surrounding that.

I like Hot Monerey Pepper Jack cheese and wheat thins...every once in awhile I will have a glass of vino, too, but only after 5:00, lol ;)

Mmmm. Snacks are my favorite subject. I LOVE almonds and dried cranberries together, but have never tried the honey roasted. I bet that is delightful.

I get off at 5, so I don't have an "after school snack" even though I work at a school. I go straight for supper. :)

But I do like to snack mid morning sometimes, and that is usually trail mix of some sort or wheat thins. I am a HUGE fan of the Sweet and Salty Caramel Crunch Chex Mix lately, though. YUM!

Thanks for bringing it up. Now I'm hungry.

Have fun with the wedding. I look forward to pictures.

God Bless,
Amy:)

I bet that is good! I love craisins... mainly I love nuts! have you tried wasabi almonds? man... I could eat the whole tin and that is just not good for anybody!

Keeping with the dried-fruit-and-nut theme, give apricots with almonds a try. It's delish!
