Our family, especially our daughter, enjoys munchies that we can take on the go. We typically take a weekend and go for a fall ride through our area and take in all the beautiful fall colors, and that requires some snacks.

Toss together all ingredients in a serving bowl; serve. Makes 4 cups.
And it just isn't fall if you don't have something pumpkin-y. I love pumpkin anything, and if you top it with cream cheese frosting, that makes it unbelievable! I made this recipe, with the intention of sharing with the gals at work, but...I don't know how it disappeared at home so quickly!
Mom's Pumpkin Brownies

4 eggs, room temperature
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1-1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Garnish: vanilla or cream cheese frosting
In a large bowl, beat eggs well with an electric mixer on medium speed. Beat in sugar, butter, pumpkin and vanilla on medium speed. Add flour and spices; beat on low speed. Spread batter in a lightly greased 9x9 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Cool; frost as desired and cut into squares. Makes 8 to 10.
And finally, I chose something that is great for a lunch in a pinch. It's a favorite with kiddos!
