A snack, that sure… You COULD buy pre packaged, but there is something about the taste of homemade Nuts & Bolts (or Chex Party Mix if you’re fancy) that brings me back to walking into my Grandmother’s house during a game of Bridge. My grandmother and her girlfriends always played Bridge once a week – they would rotate to a different house periodically, but my grandmother watched me while my parents worked. So typically she hosted. Some of the best memories are ones where I am sitting on her knee while her and her friends are laughing and passing snacks around.
This was a time where you didn’t go to the store to buy snacks, you made them! Nuts & Bolts was my FAVORITE!
