Valentine’s Trail Mix

Trail-Mix-HeartHappy Valentine’s Day everyone!  I hope today you’ll take the time to let a significant other, family member, or friend know how special and loved they are today.  You should probably do that every day, but today is a good reminder to say “I love you.”

One of my best friends is just a few weeks away from having a baby and she’s been put on bed rest.  While it sounds awesome to lay around all day, read, and watch TV, I can only imagine that it probably gets old pretty quickly.  So, I decided to put together a care package and send it to her.  Valentine’s Day was a perfect theme for the care package since it was right around the corner.   I had so much fun putting everything together, but more on that will come in a later post.

I love trail mix.  It takes me back to my summer camp days hiking and canoeing around Michigan.  It’s a fast and easy snack to take on the road and fills me up with just a few handfuls.

IngredientsIn the spirit of Valentine’s Day I got red, pink, and white M&M’s, dried cranberries, and honey roasted peanuts.

That’s it!  So easy, pretty, and delicious.  I aways make sure to have an even ratio of chocolate, raisin, and peanut in each bite.  Hand-full-of-Trail-Mix

Since I was shipping this as part of the care package to my best friend I put it in a ziploc bag to stay fresh with a pretty bow around it.
