Curried Nut Mix
Curry and nuts...what a great snack to keep around for those salty cravings. I keep a jar on deck for when I need a quick pick me up while reading or writing...or Netflixing. Sometimes I like to keep a snack bag of them in my purse for when I'm out and about. Why curried? Cause curry isn't just for chicken + fish.
