On the Road Again
We drove up at night and snacked on homemade trail mix (recipe to follow) along the way. The mountain air was crisp and clear. And with the aide of a GPS, the places we chose to visit were relatively easy to find. (Do you remember taking road trips with nothing but a map? I think we were smarter then; using true map-reading skills and common sense, but with the GPS, there's not much thinking involved. But I digress...) On this trip we had a few weird encounters, probably because we had the word "outsider" stamped on our foreheads, but other than that, no problems.
I had never heard of acupressure before, but after that service, I'm definitely looking into it. If I weren't almost 4 hours away, I'd go back there again. Maybe next time!
And as promised, my easy peasy trail mix recipe:
Libby's Trail Mix Recipe
2 c dry roasted peanuts (no-salt)
1 c dry-roasted almonds (no-salt)
1/2 c dried cranberries
1/2 c raisins
1 c dried pineapple (chopped in bite-size pieces)
1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
Mix all the ingredients in an air-tight container. Shake to combine. Enjoy!
* Of course, Trail Mix is one of those types of dishes where you put in whatever you like. I used what I had. Making my own Trail Mix prevents me from having to pick out the ingredients in the store-bought ones that I don't like. :-)
