|My bowl of mixed nuts|
December 21, 2011
When I saw the bin of loose mixed nuts, I had to buy some, even if they were ridiculously priced. A bowl full of mixed nuts is more than just a bowl of nuts. To me, it is reliving my childhood. At Christmastime growing up, my parents always had a bowl of mixed nuts. Only at Christmas because they were a special treat. They would be out with a nutcracker (for us, cracker thingie you use for lobster. We don't eat seafood in our house so this is a good use for us!) and the little pick thing. The walnuts were always my favorite and the only nut I would eat. My parents used to tell me to stop eating all the walnuts cause if I had my way there would be none left!
As I write this I'm munching on my nuts, enjoying this little slice if Christmas past....and Christmas present.
