I just said a dirty word up there. It starts with 'S' and ends in 'chool'.
The Bean is NOT excited that it is starting soon. Soon, as in next week. Next week my baby will begin his Junior year.
Time is dumb. Mean. Mean time, mean.
When school starts I am always in need of quick lunch and after school snacks. Yes, he's a junior and he still packs his lunch. Our cafeteria? Not great.
I recently got my latest shipment of Walkers Shortbread.
In it were packages of mini cookies! I love all things mini. I don't know why, but they just taste better when they are widdo and tiny.
The first thing I thought of, seeing their size, was trail mix. While the cookies are delicious straight out of the bag, this is just something a little different.
You can make this in any size you like, but I made a small batch.
Like any other trail mix, of course, you can add in whatever you like! This is just a good place to start.
In my Walkers shipment, they sent one of their newest products, Mini Crunchy Oatmeal Cookies. Let me just tell you, these are SO delicious. My new favorite Walkers product. Bean loved them too. They were most excellent dipped in tea, or coffee, or alone... YUM.
As always, I love that Walkers products are guaranteed to contain no GMOs, preservatives, hydrogenated fats. Antibiotics and bovine growth hormones are never given to their grass fed cows.
The classic shortbread is made of only FOUR ingredients: Flour, Sugar, Butter, and a pinch of Salt.
Walkers Shortbread products are also 100% vegetarian and certified Kosher OUD.
