Labor-less Day

I know it’s Labor Day and I’m supposed to be talking about some amazing glazed, fall of the bone, succulent pork rib dinner, followed by a homemade peach pie with a scoop of Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream…..buuut, you know I like to break the rules.

Today is all about snacks.

Plus, you will need some good snacks if you are going to be behind a grill all day today.

It’s Labor Day, there is no laboring involved in this snack.

It’s only two ingredients.

Y’all this stuff is ridiculous…nutty, slightly crunchy, with an island vibe to it.

Grab a piece of toast and slather some of this on it…then go have a mimosa for me!

Happy Labor Day!
