While on my pioneer trek we were given trail mix for a snack one day. Being the inquisitive person I am and having nothing else to do at the time I got to thinking. Why do we not use peanut M&Ms in trail mix? They are the same price as the regular ones and already have the peanuts inside. I am all about saving a buck. Many of our kids only eat the M&Ms from the mix anyway so why not sneak some protein in there?
I am also not a big fan of raisins. I say trail mix does not have to be the usual peanut, M&M, raisin mix. I like to spice it up with things I will actually eat. I like adding pretzels, craisins, raw almonds and sometimes mini marshmallows. What do you like in your trail mix?
And just for fun, here are a few pics of me as a Pioneer "grandma." My little family was so awesome! They worked so hard and really pulled together when on the third day (14 miles) when we had to pull members of our family in the cart (even over Rocky Ridge), one had an injured knee and the other a bad migraine. I am so proud of them! One of our "grandsons" was here for the summer from South Korea. He kept decorating the muddy wheels with flowers to make them beautiful. We had an amazing experience!
