Isn’t it interesting that we say he’s “coming home” when he comes and that he’s “going home” when he leaves?
I guess that’s the blessing of a beloved child.
You will always have two homes – one where you live – and Mom and Dad’s where you will always be welcome.
To get this beloved firstborn of ours home requires a trip to the airport in the big city. So Jan and I plan to do some Christmas shopping in route.
Since we will be without children for the first part of the trip – it definitely qualifies as a “date”. 😉 So I whipped up a batch of these yummy spicy nuts to munch on in the car.
With so many sweets around during the holidays – sometimes a little spice just hits the spot.
They are super fast to make – and disappear almost as quickly!
1 cup raw nuts (I used almonds, but cashews, pecans, walnuts, or even peanuts would also work – just make sure they are raw!)
1 teaspoon olive or coconut oil
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Toss all the ingredients together and bake until lightly toasted – about 15- 20 minutes. Watch them carefully – some nuts toast faster than others!
This recipe easily doubles, or triples.
For all you THMer’s – this is a solid and very satisfying S.
