Snacking All the Way

Barry and I rarely go anywhere without a stash of emergency food, so we can't possibly drive all the way to Omaha next week without stocking the car with provisions.  What if we're driving across trackless, restaurant-less wastes when lunchtime rolls around?  What if we decide to do a little hiking in scenic areas and need some extra energy?  What if we end up being snowbound on some Colorado back road on the return trip?  We'll need survival rations, right?  Although we usually pack a few commercial granola bars, I'm also mixing a big bag of our own trail mix recipe for snacking along the way.

Fruit and Cereal Trail Mix

1 cup Multi-Grain Cheerios
1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1/4 cup roasted sunflower seeds
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup dried cherries or cranberries

Seal ingredients in a plastic container and shake until thoroughly mixed.

Of course, thinking about that potential Colorado blizzard - maybe we need two bags....
