Trail-mix 101

Cam

I'm going backpacking tomorrow. I went to the VM this evening and got some yummyness to cook. Mmmm, I'm all about gourmet cooking over a camp stove!

However, I have a problem: I can't seem to make a small batch of trail mix. I tried really hard to only get small quantities of all the necessary ingredients (walnuts, pecans, almonds, cashews, sesame sticks, dried cherries, cashews, macadamia nuts, little graham cracker fishies, dried peaches, dried apricots, and bittersweet chocolate chips) but apparently my attempts were not successful. I wish I could weigh this huge bag of trail-mix, I'm sure it would be astounding.

Would you like to help eat my trail mix? [Insert positive reply here] Oh good, I was hoping you would say that! We're leaving at 8:30 tomorrow morning, think you can make the flight?

p.s. Yes, this post is specifically for Barry. ;) But others are welcome to respond to the invitation as well. I'll probably be eating this trail mix for the rest of the semester!

The fact that you just used the phrase "delish-nutrish" made me laugh. A lot. Mainly because I cannot think of the word "delish" without thinking of Polly Espy of "Love is a Fallacy."

It was wonderful to see you tonight :) Have fun backpacking.

Yes please. That trail mix sounds truly extraordinary, but hardly a drop compared to the real reason I almost obeyed and booked the quickest ticket to TN.

YUM that does look tasty! When I went on a backpacking trip at Southern I made the same mistake. I'm sure I had at least a lb or two of VM nuts and dried fruit to weigh me down haha. Though I don't like chocolate in my trail mix. I like chocolate in other mixes, but for some reason it doesn't appeal to me on the trail. I wonder if trail mix preferences say something about ones personality hm....
