Stripes and Banana

strips and bananaGrowing up, Stripes and Banana was the only way to eat Ice cream.  Banana is obvious, Stripes is more than just chocolate syrup.

It’s really quite simple.  You fill a coffee cup half full with Nestle’s quick.  Then you add water and mix until you get the desired consistency.  After, you just microwave it for about 30 seconds, Pour and eat up!

It’s somewhere between chocolate syrup and hot fudge if done properly but it’s better than both.

I Love Nuts and Bolts

Nuts and BoltsSeriously, I do.

You’re probably thinking:

That’s really wierd

it’s not what you think.

“Nuts and Bolts” is the name given to a snack that I ate while growing up.  It’s really just Trail Mix, but a special recipe.  It’s a secret family recipe which my aunt spent years perfecting (or so the story goes).  The base is pretzels and Chex mix, after that you can add just about anything you want, but the sauce used will remain a secret.  My mother learned the recipe long ago and my wife now knows it too.

This year I got a ton of it for christmas, and the promise of 2 other batches whenever I ask for it… saweet!
