It hit the 55 degrees mark today. That means we pull out the shorts and T-shirt and go BBQ in Minnesota, don’t ‘cha know. Now that spring might poke its buds out, I’m thinking of warm weather food.
This is one of my favorite snacks. It doesn’t require baking and is stored in the fridge. That makes it perfect for those stuffy hot days. Enjoy!
