Nuts about Heroes


I am hooked on Heroes. I am not joking. Hooked! So hooked actually that I am following it on two different channels, while probably getting even more confused than I already am. BBC2 has just started airing it (I am now finally understanding the start of it all) … whilst VT4 (a Flemish channel) has been airing it for a while so I am way in the middle of it. Confused and hooked!

Everyone knows TV shows go marvelous with drinks and snacks. Then again that could be me and my Heroes take on TV. Drinks. Check. Snacks? None. Which is where inspiration hit: home made salty almonds. Almonds, some olive oil, sea salt, thyme, all shaken about, in the oven for 5min.

All set. Now bring on the Heroes.

Do you have a favorite TV show/ snack combination? I’m embracing here a very laid back attitude to food (what food?), but I know I am not alone.

    Yay! Another Heroes addict! I actually got hooked by watching the 3rd episode, and I haven’t seen the 2 first episodes yet. Also, I missed the season finale (long story!). So I absolutely cannot wait for it to come out on DVD! The minute I get the DVDs, I’m making some of these almonds and watching me some Heroes!

  • See I started off hooked on Heroes but a few episodes in and I’m starting to get a bit bored. Does it get exciting again?

    Oh my goodness I am addicted to Heroes too! My bf and I would be on the edge of our seats gasping every 5 seconds when we watched the last few episodes. Can’t wait for the second season. 🙂

  • I haven’t had a snack linked to any show for a long, long time. I need to go back to that.
    ps: your pictures are absolutely drop-dead gorgeous.
