Stretching Macadamias...

Sheesh man, macadamia nuts are pricey.  But they are soooo good.  I stopped into Trader Joe's last week on a hungry whim to get some goods to make some trail mix because I knew it would be awhile before I got home.  I got some dry roasted and salted macadamias, some banana chips (these are sweetened), and some dried cranberries.  The nuts were nearly $9, but the banana chips and cranberries were only $3, total.  So, I figured they were an inexpensive way to stretch those macadamias just a little bit further and keep me from eating $9-worth of nuts too quickly!  For $12, these items made 2 quart-sized zip-top bags of macadamia trail mix.  Yum!  The addition of almonds would have stretched it further and made it even more protein rich for a decent price, but I was out of cash :)
