Well I certainly have been busy. I will post Christmas ideas again soon.
in the meantime, here's my Chex Mix recipe. It's been altered several times until we've reached perfection. ;-)
in big pan ( I use a large roasting pan. you can get the large disposable ones people get for turkey)
2 sticks butter or margarine (yes the box says use 6 T but long ago.... when butter wasn't considered so unhealthy, it called for more and since it's the holiday... plus this is a double batch just so you know)
2 T worshestershire (I add a bit more)
3 t beau monde or other seasoning salt (lawrys)
stir it all together and add
10 c mixed cereal (I use crispix and wheat chex)
lots of cashews (a big can)
about a half a bag of pretzel sticks
a few cups of cheerios
try to get it all coated with the butter mixture but it won't look like it is.
stir it every 15 minutes
bake one hour.
