Maple Cinnamon Candied Walnuts – Walnuts with a sticky maple cinnamon coating that are the perfect sweet snack to munch on!
These walnuts are seriously addicting! I ate almost all of them as soon as I took these pictures, think I would just have one of two and then next thing I knew, I just had a sad little pile left. But boy, was it worth it! I don’t think I could share these!
Apart from these tasty nuts, it has been such a hectic week! It is the last week of classes and every class seemed to have something big due. The projects included everything from essays about rhetoric, to building a computer micro-architecture, to even recording a podcast. Quite a range of things! It will be so nice to have a few weeks off after this to finally get around to reading all the books I got about 10 pages into during the semester like American Gods which I started for a book club this year that I never once meant to a meeting for. Two years in a row I have gotten the book and never shown up. I have good intentions, it is Friday nights which is also has been pizza night for my friend and I for over a year and pizza trumps reading for me! In addition to reading, I will hopefully finish up Pokemon Moon…. So yeah, I got some big plans for my free time! I kept optimistically starting time consuming projects in hopes I would finish them and sadly, never really did.
