Oh man, I’ve had a looooong weekend. We moved out of our apartment yesterday, without a permanent new place. We are still staying in the same area but at an Airbnb until we figure things out. So this past week was a whole lot of putting crap in boxes, driving around in a U-Haul, lifting heavy things, and lugging things into storage. I’m so so tired today so I’m taking it easy. Luckily, our Airbnb is so nice and gorgeous.

Bacon Spiced Cashews Recipe

Right before the move out day, I prepared by putting together snacks that I could munch on during and after the move. Of course, this consisted of thinking of ways to use up whatever food I had left in the kitchen. This was basically the process of how I came up with this easy but SUPER ADDICTING recipe: Bacon Spiced Cashews.

Perfect Combo of Flavors and Textures!

I don’t know why I never thought to put cashews and bacon together before. I mean, even the thought about it sounds amazing! Crispy, salty bacon and creamy cashews. What’s not to love? I had to portion these Bacon Spiced Cashews out a handful at a time, because I know I can just finish the entire thing in one sitting. However, it’s actually quite filling so it held me over between meals when I was exerting a lot of energy during the move.
