A Greasy Bucketful of Appreciation

To say ‘Thanks’ for my going ‘above/beyond’, a co-worker just brought me a horse-bucket-sized tub of cashews and trail mix.

It’s staring at me from my desk.

How am I s’posed to concentrate with THAT staring me in the face?

Besides eating it like a greedy girl, what should I do with this? Bounce the crescent-shaped kernels off the boss' head? Any suggestions?

Share it with your co-workers?

Send it to a blog friend? I think i like this idea best!

The words "greasy bucketful" bring up images o' fried chicken...not tubs o' cashews and trail mix. A considerably less greasy alternative.

how about pretending you're lost in the woods and so you must leave trails of trail mix everywhere you go so you can find your way out/not cross your own path (a la hansel & gretel)? They DO call it "trail mix" after all.

Stick toothpicks into two of the cashews, like legs into shoes, and make them do a little dance ala Charlie Chaplin and his potatoes on forks.

Can you throw some South and somewhat east of ya? I could use some. Awfully nice of your co-worker too!

Glue them to paper in shapes of people or animals as a wonderful art project.

take some cashews home, throw them in the blender with a healthy oil of your choice and make cashew butter.

Ooh, have a nice plain or vanilla yogurt with some trail mix thrown on top.

Fill one of your bosses' drawers with trail mix.

Feed it to some birds? (that would be an expensive bird feed huh?)

Throw it in some funky stir fry??

I think you should FedEx it to me. Cashews! (Imagine me saying that in the same manner as Homer Simpson saying "donuts!")

Spinning off from maggie's comment, you can make cashew butter and use it to make tasty cookies.

Or you could copy off of me. I like to make a nibbler's lunch out of cashews, dried fruit bits, and chocolate chips. Protein, fiber, and chocolate? Three essential food groups.

Either hit the trail with The Mix, or melt chocolate and cover the cashews with it!

Just eat it and be damned!
