Tee Time Trail Mix

It's Masters Week, and if you're a golf widow like me, then you know what I'm talking about.  My husband is giddy like a little kid.  He wore a green shirt to work today with his Masters logo belt.  I said, "Remember the time I had all of my friends over and we stayed up all night to watch the Royal Wedding?  The Masters is kind of like that for you and your friends huh?"  He looked at me like I was insane, which he does on a regular basis and said, "NO it's nothing like that." To which I replied, "Really?  Because you're wearing a Masters belt and all of your friends have changed their Facebook profile pictures to the Masters Logo."  If you're not a golfer then you obviously won't understand their giddiness, but it is a pretty big deal.  I've had this yummy snack mix recipe in mind for a while.  Knowing all of the men in my family would be glued to their television sets today, I gave it a golf twist and delivered a little snack to all of them.  I've named it Tee Time Trail Mix, but if you don't golf that's okay.  It's equally delicious watching a Lifetime Movie or a re-run of the Royal Wedding.  (Not that I've ever done that.)  The Masters motto is, "A tradition unlike any other." When I gave my husband his little snack mix I declared, "This is a snack mix unlike any other."  Not only did he appreciate my humor, but when he tasted it, he agreed. 
"A snack mix unlike any other..."
Tee Time Trail Mix
It's delish whether you like golf or not.
I packaged them up in little bags,
tied with green ribbon and added a golf tee for fun.
My husband, Dad and Father-In-Law
were really impressed.
My FIL asked, "Did she really make us this
just for The Masters???"
Mr. Devilish Dish loves anything with dill.
The dill and lemon pepper give this mix a light,
tangy flavor.
It really is a snack mix unlike any other!
Even if you don't know the difference between
a golf ball and a bowling ball, you will still LOVE this
snack mix.
