I was going to write a blog about Eli’s Christmas program today at school, but after a day of Georgia screaming, I just don’t think I have the energy. Seriously, there may have been about 30 minutes this morning when her head wasn’t spinning around. That’s about it.
I did manage to get Eli’s Christmas program on video, so hopefully I will get that uploaded to YouTube soon. There’s nothing cuter than a bunch of 3-5 year-olds singing Jingle Jingle Little Bells.
Right now, I wanted to post my Sweet and Spicy Party Mix recipe. I make it every year for Christmas. It is awesome. It’s an old recipe, and I kept tweaking until I finally got the right sweet/salty/spicy combination. This rocks! I only make it at Christmas time because I can literally eat all of it in one sitting.
Sweet and Spicy Party Mix
6 cups Kix cereal
6 cups Honey Nut Cheerios (this gives it the sweet flavor!)
6 cups Corn Chex
4 cups pretzel sticks
2 cans mixed nuts
1 ½ cups vegetable oil
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
4 teaspoons Tobasco sauce
In a large roasting pan, combine cereals, nuts and pretzels. In separate bowl, mix vegetable oil, Worcestershire sauce and Tobasco. Pour over cereal mixture, and stir cereal until it is well coated.
Bake at 200 for about 1 hour, stirring every 10 minutes. Store in air tight container.
