Quick Tip: Trail Mix from Leftovers

What with feeling the money pinch, I’ve had to make do with little food in the house on a number of occasions. One thing I have learned to do is to create trail mixes for snacks.

First I get out a  mixing bowl, and the plastic snack size baggies that I wash and reuse. I then go through the cupboards, throwing whatever leftovers I can into the bowl:

  • a snack size box or two of raisins
  • the sunflowers seeds left over at the bottom of the jar
  • the remainder of the nuts from their containers
  • any leftover dried fruit
  • a few chocolate chips
  • roasted squash seeds

Pretty much whatever I can find.  The trail mix is then mixed up by hand and spooned into the baggies to be used as snacks.

Very yummy.
