Snack Attack

I don’t have anything too groundbreaking to offer today, but recently I had an idea that was spurred on by my nearly habitual 3 p.m. visit to the office snack machine: Why not make my own little snacky goodness?
In my kitchen cabinet I found a half-full (I’m an optimist) tub of Snider Farms roasted peanuts, a partial tub of raisins, and a partial bag of chocolate chips. The 20-ounce peanut tub became the perfect container to jostle all of this together for a simple snack mix that I like to call my “crack.” I’ve never been a big raisin fan, but salty raisins are pretty damn tasty.
I will not disclose how many tubs of peanuts I’ve gone through since I started this practice. However, there have been a lot less visits to my nemesis, the snack machine.

Snack attack in the grass with my neighbor’s dog, Orphan. No raisins or chocolate for you, Orph!

  1. Oh yeah baby! I discovered that combo years ago. But it’s dangerous, cause it’s too darn good. I just had a small bran muffin I made a batch of yesterday. It’s a Hodgson Mills box mix I buy then add a Rose Ranch egg, etc…this time I added an apple. They’re only 85 calories and hit the spot.
