I made some of the NoChex Mix this weekend (http://lowcarbeating.com/low-carb-co...enkin-chex-mix). Hubby was happily munching away when suddenly, a pause.
"Hey, there are nuts in here..." It's dawned on him, after I've made these a few times now...I smile.
"That means you've been holding out on me. You've been hiding nuts! There are nuts in the house that I didn't know about."
I laugh. "Well, yeah, you didn't know about them. That's why they were still in the house!"
"Cashews and peanuts and Macadameias...man. This is like a good can of mixed nuts, and you hid them from me...you'd better watch that," he unconvincingly warns me. "I haven't gone looking for them...yet."
"I'd wondered how long it would take you to put it together. But you're still getting them in the snack mix anyway. And they go further that way."
Hubby has a love/hate relationships with nuts. He loves them, but hates the lack of self-control they seem to trigger. Calls 'em Fat Pills. I sometimes get him some if he asks for them, or for Holidays. A can of nuts does not stand a chance around him...
This morning, I was downstairs with him as he was getting ready to leave for work. Oh so causually, he speaks up.
"So, where is your hiding place for the nuts now?" (They weren't in the usual place I stash them.)
"Well, Honey, if I told you that, then I'd have to get a new hiding place, wouldn't I?"
He smiled, and couldn't disagree. I think he was just testing me to see if I was sleepy enough to give it up on the nuts whereabouts. Ha.
Best place to hide nuts around here? Under the sink in a bag, next to the cleaning supplies. Nobody will disturb them there...
