This post should not be confused with my wife Merikay's recent posts about home cooking for healthy eating. I decided to guest-blog on her site about some snacks that I really like, weeks before she met her new doctor who talked her into losing weight via a healthier lifestyle. I'm eating better along with her, but there's no way that such concerns will make me totally reject the three great snacks below. All three are available from food chains that are pretty widespread.
Not so with these cashews. The dill pickle taste is unmistakably good, but is subtle enough that the wonderful flavor of cashews comes shining right through. OBTW, please ignore this whole recommendation if you don't like both dill pickles and cashew nuts...
Rick & Paulette's RV Travels. Trader Joe's sells these amazing Scallops Wrapped in Uncured Bacon with Brown Sugar Glaze.
Like many things that include scallops, they're a bit pricey but to my taste they're worth every cent. The word "succulent" definitely applies, also "sweet", "juicy", plus if you leave them in the oven a little too long, "carbonized".
Finally, I really have to praise Merikay's new wonder bread. It's a shame that that Holsum Foods spread this name so widely when we were little, because she really has hit upon a terrific-tasting recipe for healthy bread that deserves the name. Those of you who were put off by several unfamilar ingredients or "we don't have a bread machine" are really missing the best-tasting bread in the world!
