It may sound nutty, but according to our food holiday calendar, today is Grab Some Nuts Day. Everyone, at least everyone who's not allergic, loves a fistful of roasted peanuts at a summer baseball game or a plastic tub full of boiled peanuts to shell on the dock (even if peanuts aren't technically nuts). Or when you're at the bar, some salted cashews and almonds to go with a cold beer, or a bag of GORP (good ol' raisins and peanuts) while on a long hike. Here are some of our favorite ways to enjoy nuts.
