Herbed Holiday Party Mix #SundaySupper

Savory Snack Mix

What a month for firsts!  Earlier this week was my first time participating in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, and now I’m excited to be taking part in my very first #SundaySupper.

What is #SundaySupper?  It is a movement to recognize the importance of family meal time.  Each week bloggers come together on Sunday to share their meal ideas, tips, and tricks for bring the family together around the table.

This Sunday’s topic will get you inspired for all those Christmas and New Year’s parties.  We’re sharing our favorite Holiday Drinks and Appetizers!

Savory Snack Mix

Since Tim and I are sill on a sugar high from this past week’s Cookie Swap, we were excited for a topic that would let us tap into the savory side of entertaining.

As we brainstormed, Tim mentioned that we hadn’t made a snack mix in a while, so we set out to create a festive and savory version to fill our cravings.

The green herbs and red pepper flakes baked into this mix give it a festive feel with a mildly herby flavor and an ever so slight kick.
