Lime & Coriander Macadamia & Cashew Nuts

Here is our latest favourite snack. It is easy and quick to prepare and a lot better than similar blends you would buy from the shop. Luke even told me ‘you’ve outdone yourself!’ – thank you sweetheart. We love them so much that I made a batch two weeks in a row. They come appropriately as a little nibble to have while sipping a drink, enjoying the long summer evenings. By the way, I have noticed how the days have become a lot shorter recently...

This week was ‘Big Screen in the Park’, an outdoor cinema in a park right next door to where we live. We took a couple of blankets and went to see E.T. – I had forgotten how good it was! We had brought hot chocolate with us – and these nuts would have also been perfect to eat while watching a film under the stars (but we had already finished them all).

Have a good weekend!
