I know it’s very trendy these days to throw around the phrase “I don’t cook,” but trust me when I say, I don’t cook.  

Oh, I could tell you horror stories about past attempts at such domesticity.  Over-sautéed vegetables that taste like mush.  Under-grilled fish that may have resulted in food poisoning.  Burning the onions and filling the kitchen with smoke, burning the pancakes and filling the house with smoke, putting a mug full of water in the microwave for tea and somehow filling the apartment with smoke which remains a mystery to me to this day.  

So I would describe what I do as less “cooking” and more “assembling.”  Answer this:  if you spread peanut butter on a rice cake, is that cooking?  If you pile a bunch of raw vegetables into a bowl and pour dressing over them, is that cooking?  And lastly, is this cooking:  
1lb salted roasted Almonds
1 bag of yogurt-covered raisins
1 bag of sweetened dried cranberries
Dump all ingredients into a large Ziploc bag.  Shake it like a Poloroid picture.  Place on high shelf.
The best part about this snack is that it’s pretty!  I could picture this sitting in a fancy dish at a holiday party.  Best off?  It’s gluten free and kind of healthy.  Almonds, right?  And it’s not cooking.

Unless it is.
It’s not…right?

  1. I'm soooo untrendy then because I COOK and I love it! Your assembly of goodies is one of my faves though. It goes perfect in oatmeal.

  2. Shake it like a Polaroid picture…love it!
