Autumn has come and smacked me square between the eyes, and let me tell you I couldn’t be more thrilled about it. The smells are changing, the sun rises a few minutes later so I get to sneak a few more minutes in bed, I no longer have to justify my obsession with scarves, tis a great thing this season.
I’ve been milling around for over a week trying to figure out what I wanted to use as my big debut! my proclamation to the world! until I finally realized I had put so much pressure on myself for my inaugural post that I had to step back and tell myself, “Do what you love…cook.” So I did. And then I realized I forgot to measure my trail mix. This is a natural occurrence in my world – where things just kind of “come together” as defined by terribly abstract handfuls or little bits. I do not tell a lie.
So this is my effort to track what I did. I will warn you: it may have taken me a really long time to write this because my hands were otherwise engaged in nom-ing. (Did I really just use that, uh, word?)
Simple Autumnal Trail Mix
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup almonds
2/3 cup raw pumpkin seeds
3/4 cup dried cranberries
Now, if I could only figure out how to transplant a pumpkin patch into the city….
