Fall Memories and the Snacks to Match

Pistachios. One of my Dad’s favorite snacks were the hard-to-open nuts. He liked pistachios in snack mixes or just as nature made them.

I remember the feeling when my Dad let me try to break open pistachios on my own for the first time. As you can imagine, I failed miserably. My little fingers just couldn’t do the work.

My Dad reached out to help me and because I thought he was taking it away, I popped the entire pistachio – shell and all – right into my mouth. And started chewing…

I don’t recommend doing that, friends, but I do recommend this yummy fall snack mix. It’s the perfect mix of salty and sweet. Just look at it – it’s also gorgeous on any table!
