A Perfect Date Recipe

Nutmeg has decided that girl friends are perfect dates.


Girls talk about cooking, books, flowers, gardens, movies and very rarely (maybe never) about hockey. The best part, they bring snacks all the way from Canada to Spain for the big walk on the Camino – really! Homemade trail mix and fresh date squares were very welcomed treats on along the way. Honestly, what man would think of that?

The recipe for date squares follows. If you want to know a bit more about dates here is Nutmeg’s earlier post.
