I remember when I was little and we celebrated Mother’s or Father’s Day and I would ask, “When is Kid’s Day?”
Of course my parents, like everyone’s, answered, “everyday is children’s day”.
Well, I’m kinda thinking the same thing applies to Father’s Day.
My mom didn’t tell me that little nugget.
My husband gets food cooked for him everyday and he gets gifts bought for him quite regularly.
Those are basically the two defining characteristics of having a “day”, right?
So, I am trying to make a big deal of all the things that I am doing for him today, so tomorrow when I refuse to make dinner or wash his clothes, I can be all, “It’s not Father’s Day anymore, husband….It’s REAL LIFE.”
And real life means laundry and toilet scrubbing.
That should be a bumper sticker.
Trail Mix Krispie Treats with a Salted Caramel Swirl.
Maybe this isn’t real life.
I have been wanting to try a trail-mixey version for a while, but just hadn’t had the chance.
But when I happened upon this snack mix down the aisles of Target, I knew it was karmic..or cosmic…or meant to be.
Yeah, all that.
Now if you can’t find this yummy stuff, no worries. Just use your favorite trail mix. I like this one because it has little pretzels, eensy cookies and M&Ms in it.
You just make it up kinda like regular krispie treats, but use half krispies, half trail mix.
Mix it up with the marshmallow.
It’s a beautiful thing.
But you mustn’t forget the salted caramel swirliness of it all.
So melt some caramel.
No. Don’t use ice cream topping.
THEN add a few pinches of coarse sea salt.
Now plop it into your trail mixey, marshmallow concoction.
And DON’T stir it.
Just press it into your pan.
And let it sit for a bit.
THEN cut it.
Trail Mix Krispie Treats with a Salted Caramel Swirl. Do it.
Now, go tend to your husband.
