2008 texas caviar

for 3 years now kristin has made up a big bowl of texas caviar on new years day. i love the stuff not only because it taste good but because it is also so good for you. i think i may go the entire day & eat nothing but texas caviar. i'll be a vegan for the day! i've already finished the bag of organic blue chips w/ flax seed (sounds great huh?) & moved on to the whole earth wheat chips (super healthy version of a triscuit). hopefully we'll have texas caviar more than once this year.
