We're a little eclectic. Our loving Seattle son keeps us supplied with two things, Tillamook 'black' two year cheddar and smoked salmon. We always carry a couple of pounds of salmon. It keeps without refrigeration in their mylar pouchs and allows us to create a classy meal anytime, our latest is salmon cakes with a lemon dill sauce.
The Pecans and Walnuts are used for all kinds of cooked items but mostly for car snacking. The last item Twizzlers (red) are used for Twizzler time. After driving an hour, usually at precisely 9AM, I start singing 'Twizzler Time', a Norm original.
Recently 'Dots' have slipped into our snack box, a candy that lasts a long time. Ginny gets most of the 'red' and 'oranges', I'm pretty much regulated the 'greens' and yellows'.
I don't think I mentioned it earlier but we do carry raw honey. I've switched to it in my coffee, it always makes it a treat to reach the bottom of the cup where the honey's a little denser. If we're lucky we also have a couple of jars of Partridge berry jam, that we only seem to find in NL.
We just returned from our annual check up and the doctor charmed Ginny by telling her she was like a fine wine, getting better with age. For me he said that our life style changes have made a real difference, almost eliminating stress, eating better and exercising more. I'm still amazed that how quickly the body can get better when you treat it better.
I've had a lot of success in my life (of course failures too) but no previous success matches that of our travels, amazingly entering our 15th year.
I'm feeling really happy today.
