National Trail Mix Day

August 31st is National Trail Mix Day! Today’s food holiday came at the perfect time, as mom and I have a 6+ hour drive to southern California ahead of us this morning, and some homemade trail mix will probably keep me from snacking on inappropriate car food (although I’ll be honest, the Sour Patch Kids are packed and read to go.) Most of the trail mix fixings I already had in the house (almonds, raisins, pecans, dates, chocolate chips) but I stopped by the store for a few fun things as well (dried cranberries, banana chips.) Sandwich bag full of goodness in hand, it’s time to hit the road ๐Ÿ™‚


National Peach Pie Day

August 24th is National Peach Pie Day! I took a peach pie recipe from The Joy of Vegan Bakingย and I’ll admit, it came out a lot more like a peach crumble than the good ol’ American pie I was expecting– but, that being said, there are no complaints here! (Side note: I definitely need to re-stock on aluminum foil… I sat helpless watching the pie crust burn in the oven today. Pouting definitely occured.)
