Summer is the time of year to get out of the house and have some fun in the sun. It’s time to take advantage of long sunny days and squeeze in as many adventures as you can, right? (I see you, fellow mid-westerners and east-coasters, nodding away.)
Whether you love being in the woods, by the water, or on a boat, the last thing you want is for lack of preparation to interfere with the fun. But with a little planning, you can be ready to embark on an all-day excursion that may even last into the night.
For starters, designate a handy “adventure backpack” and keep it filled with outdoor essentials. All you should have to do is throw in food and water, then head out the door.
I always keep sunscreen and bug spray in mine, plus a rolled-up towel, in case I end up by the water. (That’s one thing about summertime; you never know where the day will take you!) It’s also a good idea to have a cheap pair of sunglasses in there, as well as a first-aid kit – or at least a few bandages.
When you’re heading out for the day, you have to pack snacks, and you have to choose wisely! They need to be filling and satisfying, but also tasty and fun. That’s why I love making mouthwatering snack mixes, filled with everything I love.
But today I’m sharing with you my new favorite snack mix recipe with everyone’s favorite chip: Doritos! Their flavor combines with salty pretzels, crunchy Fritos, Cheetos, and protein-packed nuts, basically everything we love and adore! I also add pre-packaged Doritos Mix for extra variety – love those different shapes!
The ingredients are tossed in melted butter and honey, and then sprinkled with a coating of crushed Doritos, so that every bite has that delicious taste of spicy Doritos.
After baking everything in the oven, you’ll get a sweet and salty snack that’s full of flavors and textures. No matter who you’re with, it’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser!
Bring this fun and delicious mix any time you’re headed outside. Whether you’re packing for a picnic, a hike, a day at the beach, or a fishing trip, you’ll love having this treat on hand!
Hope you enjoyed my snack mix today. Thank you for stopping by!
