Trail mix does and always will remind me of those sleepless nights after our No.1 was born. She was a good sleeper but for the first several months, like most newborns, she would wake up once or twice for feeding during the nigh. Most of the time, while nursing, I was watching tv, mostly news… they would bore the heck out of me, so I would get hungry.
Trail mix was always a great resolution to my problem. I ate pounds of trail mix during those months. At first I was buying already mixed stuff. Then, one day I run out of it but having a few different nuts, raisins and some leftover chocolate chips I made my own trail mix and from that day I have not bought another trail mix.
Now, every time I go to the store, I make sure to get some seeds, nuts and dried fruits in bulk… just in case of a craving, which I always have. If there are a few chocolate chip left somewhere, it is an extra goodness… but it is not necessary.
This time I had everything… nuts and dried fruits, and chocolate chips.
Fistful of walnuts
3 Tbsp. pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup dry cranberries
1 Tbsp. dry cherries
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
The concoction was wonderful! A little tart from all the dry fruits with the wonderful flavor from white chocolate chips; So good I thought, I should share it !
Have a wonderful day, my friends.
