The fact that I am even writing a post about this CRACKS. ME. UP. I have been laughing about it for days. It makes me happy, deep in my heart.
Snack trays were invited by my Mom in the late '90s. 😂 Unlike today's modern snack tray, they were created out of necessity -- out of "we have nothing but random fruits and crackers and ingredients in our pantry" so, let's slap them all on a cutting board and call it dinner. And we LOVED it. Quickly, snack trays became the thing to enjoy while watching the VHS movies we'd rent from Blockbuster. And eventually, without really thinking too much of it, they became a staple in The Courtney Home.
For whatever reason, I kinda forgot about them... until sometime last year when I had no idea what to make T.J. and myself for dinner. ENTER: snack tray. I threw a few pretzels, cheese, apples, almonds and other items on a tray and it was delicious. T.J. immediately said "WHY have you never made this before? WHY don't we eat this all the time?!?!" And since then, we've never looked back. 😂
